Hyundai has released its first teaser of its upcoming i20 N hot hatch, which joins the latest i30 N model in a fight for dominance within their respective hot-hatch segments.
Design details have been kept to a bare minimal with front end highlights including a large air intake for the turbo engine and brake cooling. Bespoke 18inch wheels with a grey matte finish and N-branded brake callipers, as well as unique side sills, dominate the side view whilst a distinctive rear spoiler and large tailpipes completing the athletic stance.
Performance details of the upcoming i20 N have been kept a secret, with www.motor1.com confirming the i20 N to be available with a 149kW/275Nm 1.6litre turbocharged engine that sends power to the front wheels (with slip-differential) via a standard 6-speed manual transmission. The 0-100km/h has been quoted at 6.7sec with top speed of 230km/h.
Stay tuned for more details.
