The reason our N series are notorious corner rascals? Four words; N Corner Carving Differential or E-LSD for short. When cornering, E-LSD sends engine power to the outside of the wheels rather than the inner side preventing understeering and delivering a unique carving experience.
In addition, as an SUV the Kona N has improved strut ring structure, extra welding points and reinforced skeleton to hug the road during cornering.

On Manual variants, at speeds of 20km/h or above, Blind-Spot Collision warning (BCW) uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles next to and diagonally behind the i30 N. If a vehicle is present in the i30 N’s blind spot, BCW displays a visual alert in the exterior mirrors. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an audible alert is sounded. Additionally, the Lane Change Assist (LCA) feature scans for vehicles approaching rapidly from the rear, and uses the same BCW warning measures to alert the driver of vehicles which may be entering the i30 N’s blind spot at a higher rate of speed.
On DCT variants, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) is available which uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles next to and diagonally behind the i30 N. If a vehicle is detected in the blind spot while the turn signal is flashing, BCA automatically applies left or right-side front braking before your attempted lane change thus helping you avert an unsafe lane change and a potential collision.
Using the BCA system’s radar sensors, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) monitors for traffic approaching on either side of the i30 N when reversing out of perpendicular parking spaces at speeds of up to 8km/h. Should RCCA detect a vehicle approaching, an audible warning will sound, with a visual warning displayed on the dash cluster. In the case that the driver does not adhere to the warning, RCCA may use braking force and help avoid a collision with the approaching vehicle.
FCA utilises front radar sensors and a windshield-mounted camera to detect cars, pedestrians, and cyclists in front of the i30 N. The system can warn of a potential obstacle ahead, and apply braking to help mitigate a potential collision.
Lane Following Assist (LFA) uses the front windshield mounted camera to detect lane markers and preceding traffic on the road, and provides steering assistance to ensure the vehicle stays in the centre of the lane.
When driving at night, High Beam Assist can automatically enable the high beams when safe to do so. HBA will detect nearby vehicles through the windscreen mounted camera, and automatically disable high beams when at risk of dazzling a nearby driver.
Using the BCW system’s radar sensors, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) monitors for traffic approaching on either side of the i30 N when reversing out of perpendicular parking spaces. Should RCCW detect a vehicle approaching, an audible warning will sound, with a visual warning displayed on the dash cluster.
