    Reckon Albert Beirmann would have been shuddering when he looked over the first gen platform after he arrived at Hyundai in 2015. Shocking styling, goofy layout, cheap drivetrain and horribly underpowered - needed a lot of work. It was popular tho; cant deny that.

    The more Hyundai go on the better they seem to get. I bought a Elantra for my then wife 12 years ago and now my son drives it, bullet proof. At the World Superbikes this year at Phillip Island I was chatting for some time to a Hyundai engineer there with a couple of I30N's they are using this year as marshals cars. He was involved in the suspension calibration they did for the test mules here in Australia before release and was a FWD car racer as well. He was saying that he and the factory engineers that came out for the testing sat around and discussed revised damper and spring settings and after emailing the factory they were fitting the new units 3 days later! Emailed the factory with the revised settings, the factory built up another set of struts and had them in the country in 3 days...impressive.
    He also mentioned that the plastic intake manifold showed significant power gains over the cast aluminium so thats why they went with the plastic. I didnt ask about this he just mentioned it. Less heat soak with the plastic it was explained to him.
    I just think they are an impressive outfit Hyundai.
