Something interesting is happening at Hyundai. About a decade ago the South Korean company decided it would go after the premium Germans. Since then it has been working slowly at getting there, launching one or two competing products here and there, creating the Genesis brand as a standalone business etc. Now they seem to be accelerating the plan.


Rumour has it that Hyundai’s N brand, which can currently be seen in the i30N hot hatch (202kW, not for Mzansi though), is working on a new halo car. Suggestions are that it will not be badged as a Hyundai, but will be a standalone car in the separate N brand. Therefore anything is possible in that regard; a 2-door sports car, a 4-door executive sedan, a hi-performance hot SUV, etc.
