It’s no secret that Hyundai is working on a sporty hot hatch that will sit below the i30 N. It will be a new hot version of the latest generation i20 from its N division. However, apart from that, everything else regarding the upcoming new i20 N model has been a secret. But as the reveal of the new model draws near, Hyundai has released teaser images of the new hot i20 N showcasing what we were already expecting. Additionally, an audio clip of the exhaust note of the i20 N has also been released.
The i20 N will be powered by a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder turbo petrol engine. It is the same motor that does duty in the N-Line versions of Hyundai models higher up the range. The motor is capable of 200hp and 275Nm of torque and is said to come paired with the six-speed manual transmission. The images show that the styling would be similar to the N-Line model which was recently revealed with the standard line of engines. But, it will get some subtle bespoke touches like the signature N blue exterior colour, with the red accents and the blacked-out roof.
The audio clip released by Hyundai allows us to hear the four-pot turbo in its angry form. The throaty exhaust note with the pops on the lift-off sound exciting, to say the least.

Although Hyundai did suggest that they wish to introduce the N brand to the Indian market, there has been no word on its official arrival yet. In Europe and other parts of the world, the i20 N will rival the likes of the Ford Fiesta ST and the Volkswagen Polo GTI
