Exactly, that is the point of the whole car. I test drove a DSG Golf R on Saturday - stupidly quick but not involving enough for my taste. I've test driven a Focus RS, even faster than the Golf but all but impossible to live with. The i30N is totally trackable but also liveable too, and a bargain when you compare price/costs. Now I have to decide what colour I want and whether to wait for the MY19 fastback or go with a MY18 hatch. Decisions decisions.
