The ultimate corner rascal: the all-new i20 N is a racetrack capable hot-hatch inspired by the i20 WRC rally car.
As with other Hyundai N models, it offers fun to drive thanks to its exclusive engine performance and dynamic technology innovations. The latest model joins the i30 N and i30 Fastback N among Hyundai’s high-performance line-up to satisfy performance-oriented enthusiasts.
Race bred for the road and track.
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 all-new 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. This includes a redesigned undercover and an additional bracket.
The all-new i20 N offers direct and precise steering for confident, sporty driving through a reduced steering ratio of 12.0 (i20: 12.4) and its specifically tuned column-mounted motor driven power steering system (C-MDPS).
1.6L Turbocharged Manual
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 150 kW and a maximum torque of 275 Nm for ultimate power delivery. With 1,190 kg of weight just as the i20 Coupe WRC, the power-to-weight ratio is one of the best in class.
The all-new i20 N delivers a maximum speed of 230 km/h, and can go from 0‑100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds.
Tech and connectivity.
The all-new 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 PS, torque, turbo boost. It also comes with a lap and acceleration timer. In addition, the all-new i20 N comes with a 10.25-inch LCD touchscreen navigation system with dedicated N content, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
On the safety side of things, the i20 N is equipped with a suite of Hyundai SmartSense safety features and complies with the highest safety standards. This includes features such as Forward Collision Assist City / Interurban / Pedestrian (FCA), Lane Following Assist (LFA) and Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW).
Like the i30 N, the all-new i20 N boasts a range of high-performance driving features. Rev Matching synchronises the engine to the output shaft and has its own dedicated activation button on the steering wheel. This allows smoother or sportier downshifts, depending on the drive mode. With Launch Control, the engine and traction control are optimised for quick acceleration from a standing start just like a professional race driver.
Other motorsport-inspired features include an electric sound generator, variable muffler control for the perfect exhaust sound, as well as left-foot braking calibration, a brake pad wear indicator (PWI), and dedicated 215/40 R18 Pirelli P-Zero ultra-high-performance tyres with “HN” mark (standing for “Hyundai N”).
N Traction & Stability Control.
Developed in-house, the traction and stability control is like a good co-pilot, helping when necessary but otherwise being quiet, never disturbing your driving fun. If desired, it can be switched off completely.
N Corner Carving Differential.
The Mechanical Limited Slip Differential controls the power transfer to each front wheel. It improves steering and stability in high speed turns.
Active Variable Exhaust System.
Pump up the volume. Select different levels of exhaust sound – relatively restrained in Normal mode, to the crackling “after-burn” growl in N mode with added fuel detonations, like a rally car.
