Hyundai High Performance Hatch “N” 2nd Test
For the first time, the camera captures the hard-core model, i20N, developed by Korea’s best-selling hatchback “i20”, a model developed by Hyundai.
“N” is a high-performance brand launched by the same brand in 2015, and announced the “i30N” as the first in 2017, and the i20N will be the second.
The i20 achieved global cumulative sales of 1 million units in 2016 and received a face lift in April 2018. The captured prototype is a test mule based on this new model, but the details are unknown.
However, at the foot of the low-down body, it is equipped with a high-performance brake with red brake calipers, the Pirelli P-Zero tire of 215/40 R18. You can also see the dual exhaust pipe that predicts a powerful turbo engine. It should also have a hard-set sports suspension.
The expected powertrain is equipped with a 1.6 liter in-line 4-cylinder gasoline turbo “T-GDI” engine. The target rival, Toyota “GR Yaris” is equipped with a 1.6-litre in-line three-cylinder turbo engine and is expected to have a maximum output of 250 ps. However, it should not be that difficult because Kia’s “seed GT” loaded with the engine demonstrates 201ps.
The current i20 has been released since 2014, and will be touched to the third generation in 2021. Therefore, the world premiere of the N model is likely to be imminent.
