Hyundai’s N performance division has unveiled its latest model: the i20 N. This exhilarating hot hatch comes with a powerful turbo engine, an aerodynamic exterior and plenty of tech to boot!
The All-New i20 N will be available across Europe from
spring 2021, and is inspired by the company’s WRC rally car, the i20 Coupe WRC.
The latest model joins the i30 N and i30 Fastback N among Hyundai’s
high-performance line-up to satisfy performance-oriented enthusiasts.
This racetrack capable hot hatch is inspired by the brand’s WRC rally car, the i20 Coupe WRC. Based on a highly modified version of the road-going Hyundai i20, the i20 Coupe WRC has led Hyundai to success: being crowned the WRC manufacturers’ champion in 2019 after securing four wins during the season.
The All-New i20 N boasts a new-generation-for-Europe 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo with a bespoke turbo sits in the i20N’s nose, with 201bhp and 203lb ft being sent to the front wheels via a reinforced six-speed manual. The i20N has launch control and rev matching, and you can spec a power-shuffling limited-slip differential, too.
The all-new i20 N is equipped with a number of dedicated functionalities for a sporty fun-to-drive experience. The N Grin Control System offers customers a high level of customisation, with five distinct drive modes: Normal, Eco, Sport, N and N Custom.
The exterior design of the i20 N emphasises its high-performance nature by combining elements of Hyundai’s rallying heritage with the company’s latest Sensuous Sportiness design identity. It features a stunning body kit comprising a deeper front bumper with enlarged air intakes, unique side skirts that wrap around into a reshaped rear bumper with new diffuser, while a roof-mounted spoiler, inspired by the WRC car, has also been added.
The wide radiator grille with N logo features a unique pattern inspired by a chequered flag, underlining the all-new i20 N’s racetrack capability. Below the grille, a lip spoiler featuring Tomato Red accents further enhances the model’s performance-oriented design. The all-new i20 N’s sporty credentials are further accentuated by its bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels with a grey matte finish and N-branded brake callipers, and a big single exhaust.
The all-new i20 N comes in six exterior colours including the N signature ‘Performance Blue’ livery, which is exclusive to Hyundai N models, and an optional Phantom Black roof for a two-tone style.
Inside, the all-new i20 N represents a high-performance driving space with a host of N-specific advanced and high-tech premium features. This includes dedicated sport seats with an integrated headrest that are unique to the all-new i20 N, as well as N steering wheel and N gear knob and sporty N metal pedals.
