After the summer, Hyundai will debut the new i20 N. The sportiest SUV has been seen at the Nürburgring several times, but never like these spy photos, much more uncovered and almost exposing the most aggressive design. A model that will hit European dealerships in 2021.
Of course, it is one of the most important models that Hyundai has in hand today, the sportiest version of the i20 , which reaches a segment previously dominated by the French but which is now almost deserted, with vague exceptions. The arrival of the new Hyundai i20 N aims to liven up the category.
And it is not for less, because the South Korean firm has completely changed the design of the utility, betting on a more modern style, which looks more aggressive and sporty still in these latest spy photos that have just arrived from the Nürburgring , looking at the much more uncovered model than on previous occasions .
The prototype already shows the new forms adopted in the front bumper, practically dominated by the large radiator grille and two attached vertical air intakes on both sides . Underneath, there is a narrower air intake that, in the shape of a trapezoid, extends across the entire width, exposing a minimal part of the red edge , characteristic of the Hyundai N models .
Marked side skirts, 17-inch alloy wheels and low suspension height increase sportiness , as does the new design on the rear of Hyundai\’s utility vehicle. A single oval exhaust, but large in diameter and similar to that of the Audi RS models , together with a large diffuser and a large spoiler on the tailgate, are details that give an idea of the potential of this i20.
The world debut of the new i20 N is planned for next October, while the arrival of units at dealerships will be delayed until 2021 . Then, customers will be able to enjoy the sensations that will transmit the powerful four-cylinder 1.6-liter T-GDI engine with a maximum power that will exceed 200 hp , and available with 6-speed manual transmission or automatic dual-clutch and 7-ratio gearbox. .
