Hyundai have recently introduced the i20 N, Hyundai’s first light hot hatchback. The i20 N is now the third model for their sporty N Division.
ENGINE: 1.6-litre turbocharged GDi
GEARBOX: Six-speed manual
PRICE: $53,990 + ORC
Don’t be fooled by its featherweight proportions – With 1,190kg of weight just as the i20 Coupe WRC, the power-to-weight ratio is one of the best in class. The new i20 N can run with its N stablemates, delivering its speed and performance - a maximum speed of 230 km/h, and can go from 0‑100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds, with a fun personality that turns every trip into a Special Stage.
Every High-performance N model is designed by passionate experts and born at Hyundai Motors Namyang R&D Center. The performance cars then go off to the Nürburgring racetrack in Germany, one of the world’s most gruelling race tracks, to undergo rigorous testing and inspection. Through this painstaking process, N technology is carefully refined.
Because the i20 N is a light hatchback, it means it gives customers a cleverly practical everyday performance car, complete with a 10.25-inch colour Supervision digital cluster and 10.25-inch satellite navigation infotainment unit featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
In addition, the i20 N is packed with SmartSenseTM safety and driver-focused N technologies.
The i20 N is powered by a 150kW turbocharged 1.6 litre turbo engine with overboost function driving the front wheels via a six-speed manual and mechanical LSD.
“We are excited to introduce the i20 N compact hot hatchback, joining its siblings the i30 N and Kona N,” says Hyundai New Zealand General Manager, Chris Blair.
“i20 N is playful, really fun to drive and quite intuitive to drive as well. With an array of convenience and connectivity features, SmartSenseTM safety and N driving technologies, it’s a race track-capable everyday performance car”.
