Car & Driver shares the scoop on Hyundai's new performance line

" We know that the first product of Hyundai’s N performance division is set to be a turbocharged hatchback aimed at the European market, where the division is headquartered (photo). But we’ve also learned that two other N variants will be launched shortly afterward, both designed to have broader international appeal ... Timing for these introductions will be in close proximity, according to N division boss Albert Biermann, with the first coming “six or seven months” behind the i30N and the other shortly afterward.

What does that mean for us in Stockton, CA?

While this new hot hatch will be produced first for the euro market--historically more inclined toward spicy five-doors--we will hopefully soon be seeing a larger selection of athletic high-performance cars than just the, admittedly stunning, Hyundai Elantra GT.

The head of the N division subtly suggested that, after the release of the hatchback, N-line sedan and coupe models may also be seen on the international market.

And that's something that everyone can get behind.
