Hyundai i30N Performance Road Test Review: N Marks the Spot

The Korean brands are on a roll right now. Kia is making some of the most handsome cars in its sector, sister brand Hyundai is making some quality kit (and even appearing in Marvel films) and Ssangyong remains as robust and great value as ever.

When Nissan launched the Juke in 2010, reactions were varied to say the least. In a classic case of judging the book by its cover, some in the automotive press were not terribly kind.
