Hyundai has already teased the brand new automobile in a video again in Might, so it looks like its reveal is quick approaching; nevertheless, Hyundai has but to say when that’ll occur.
The i20 N will be a part of the automaker’s different N efficiency mannequin the i30 N. Particular particulars concerning the automobile’s efficiency stay a thriller. We anticipate the I20 N to provide round 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts), however we don’t know which engine will assist inspire the hatchback. The most recent rumors recommend it may use the Kia Ceed GT’s turbocharged 1.6-liter fuel engine or a detuned model of the bigger 2.0-liter from the i30 N. We’re hoping Hyundai gives a handbook gearbox choice to go with the dual-clutch automated.
The brand new photographs present the i20 N dropping its black cloth coverings. We will see the front-end design with the black (purposeful?) intakes pushed to the surface of the bumper together with the headlights. On the rear, we are able to spot the roof spoiler and a part of the taillights. We will additionally spot the rear diffuser together with the massive tailpipe. The lowered suspension and beefier brakes are nonetheless current.
As Hyundai has famous, a reveal ought to be imminent, however meaning it may occur in late 2020 or early 2021. It’s additionally one car that gained’t go on sale within the US. We don’t get the smaller Hyundai right here, which implies we gained’t get the hot-hatch model both. As a substitute, Hyundai will set it unfastened abroad to compete in opposition to the Ford Fiesta ST, VW Polo GTI, and the Toyota GR Yaris. Anticipate extra Hyundai N fashions, too, just like the Kona N and Tucson N, which the US could get to get pleasure from.
