2020 Hyundai i20 N Teased Ahead Of Launch
Hyundai has teased a sportier N derivative of the all-new i20 premium hatchback. Expected to debut later this year, the hot hatchback made a brief appearance in a video of the standard hatchback followed by the words ‘to be continued’. What’s evident from the teaser is that the i20 N will wear larger alloy wheels, along with featuring a prominent roof-mounted spoiler and sporty side sills with red accents. It’s also safe to expect a different bumper design on both ends to give it a more aggressive look to go with its character.
Hyundai is in the final stages of testing its first-ever performance-oriented i20 N, with a world debut expected sometime this year. The i20 N will come with a 204hp, 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine, making it the most-powerful i20 to roll out from the factory. This engine is already available in a bunch of other Hyundai models like the Veloster, and is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox that is bundled with a Manual mode and a Sport mode. There are talks of a 6-speed manual on the i20 N as well. The i20 N's torque figure is expected to be around 260Nm.
