What should I check...

On my test drive tomorrow of a Hyundai i30 N?

First time I’m going for a test drive of a new car, ever. Any tips, do’s and don’ts and such?


I’m also bringing a colleague for a second set of eyes and opinion, it helps that he likes cars and is local instead of an expat like I am. People here still tend to screw with expats from time to time.

If you’re not familiar with the i30 N, it’s Hyundais first result of their N Performance development. A hot hatch to compete with the Golf GTI for less money. With 202kW/275BHP from a 2.0L turbocharged 4 cylinder, active suspension, limited slip differential up front and a bunch of other gadgets. It’s become a minor obsession for me in terms of lots of bang for buck for a new car (yes, used can always be cheaper).
