The all new i20 N is Hyundai's latest high-performance hatchback from its performance division and brings the thrills of racing to the i20 range.

21 Oct 2020 | International News : U.K



Hyundai has revealed its latest high-performance model, the all new i20 N, a racetrack capable hot hatch inspired by the i20 WRC rally car. As with other Hyundai N models, it offers fun to drive characteristics thanks to its exclusive engine performance and dynamic technology innovations.

The i20 N has added aerodynamic enhancements compared to aid its performance, and is also lowered by 10mm
The i20 N presents an uncompromising and powerful look to match its high-performance experience. The exterior design emphasises its high-performance nature by combining elements of Hyundai's rallying heritage with the company's latest Sensuous Sportiness design identity, creating an emotional appeal for drivers.

The front is dominated by a front bumper with a larger air intake for the turbocharged engine. The wide radiator grille with N logo features a unique pattern inspired by a chequered flag. Below the grille, a lip spoiler featuring Tomato Red accents further enhances the model's performance-oriented design.

The i20 N keeps maximum torque between 1750 to 4,500rpm, and achieves maximum power between 5,500 and 6,000rpm
At the rear, a distinctive WRC-inspired roof spoiler enhances downforce and underscores the aerodynamic nature of the all new i20 N so that it is fun to drive on any road and helps maintain stability even at high speeds. A rear bumper has built-in diffuser-like elements and a triangular rear fog light. In addition, a big single exhaust emphasises the high-performance potential of the engine.

Other design highlights include front LED headlamps, while the darkened tail lamps resemble a black diamond. The all new i20 N also comes with bespoke 18‑inch alloy wheels with a grey matte finish and N-branded brake calipers.

The 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 i20 N comes with a host of N-specific features. This includes dedicated sport seats with an integrated headrest that are unique to the i20 N, as well as N steering wheel and N gear knob and sporty N metal pedals. The black interior features Performance Blue accents throughout and allblack head lining.

The all-new i20 N is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged GDi engine with a six-speed manual transmission (6MT). This engine is the first of a new generation to feature in a European Hyundai model, and delivers a maximum output of 201bhp and 275Nm of torque. Weighing only 1,190kg, the power-to-weight ratio is one of the best in class. The i20 N has a top speed of 230km/h, and accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 6.7 seconds.

Dedicated N keys on the steering wheel allow any type of pre-sets driving modes to be accessed according to individual needs
The i20 N can also be equipped with the N Corner Carving Differential, a mechanical limited slip differential that utilises a mechanically controlled Torsion gear type to control the power transfer to the front wheels. It provides optimum traction and enhances grip on every corner for a sportier and more agile ride.

The 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 of Normal, Eco, Sport, N and N Custom.

The drive modes adjust the parameters of the engine, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), exhaust sound and steering in order to optimise them for a variety of driving conditions. Also, dedicated N keys on the steering wheel flexibly allow any type of pre-sets to be mapped according to individual needs. For even more exuberant driving, the ESC can be operated in three stages of on, sport and fully off.

Hyundai's engineers have retuned and refined the regular i20's chassis, suspension, brakes and steering in order to deliver more agile ride and handling so that the i20 N is capable of handling the thrills of the racetrack. The chassis has been reinforced at 12 different points to ensure smoother handling and usability on any road and in all weather conditions.

The i20 N features a Performance Driving Data System to monitor and improve the driver's track skills. This feature saves and displays driving data, including information on horsepower, torque and boost. It also comes with a lap and acceleration timer. This information can be displayed on the optional 10.25-inch LCD touchscreen navigation system with dedicated N content, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
