The reason for getting the N Line is for its turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, which produces 150kW and 265Nm. Not only does the N Line offer more grunt but it’s paired up with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission rather than a traditional six-speed auto matched to the lower powered engines. The N Line also comes with the option of a six-speed manual gearbox, and it’s also offered on the entry grade i30, too.
The i30 was given the maximum five-star ANCAP rating when it was tested in 2017.
Standard on all grades is AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection.
Lane keeping assistance is also standard across the i30 range and so is adaptive cruise control.
