Hyundai has revealed the all-new racetrack capable i20 N hatchback inspired by the i20 WRC rally car. The i20 N joins the i30 N and i30 Fastback N among Hyundai’s high-performance line-up in Europe.

The i20 N has its roots in motorsport, and thus has the same weight as the minimum weight required in FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). It adds aerodynamically functional forms to the sporty and dynamic styling of its base model, the Hyundai i20, such as a 10 mm lower ground clearance.

In addition, there is also a big single exhaust indicating high-performance potential of the engine.

The sporty credentials are further accentuated by the bespoke 18 inch alloy wheels with a grey matte finish and N-branded brake callipers.
