The Hyundai brand was not so popular with tuning fans and car fans until a few years ago, as the models often did not correspond to the taste of sporty natures. However, this scenario has changed fundamentally since the introduction of the Hyundai i30 N, as this compact hot hatch has completely turned the power compact class upside down and has also caused many GTI fans to rethink. In addition, the Hyundai i30 N has also become a favorite of the tuning scene, and there are a lot of videos on the Internet that show tuned vehicles of this model. The Hyundai sports division called N, which incidentally stands for Namyang, a race track in South Korea, does not want to rest on these laurels, and is now sending the smaller i20 N into the race to compete against the VW Polo GTI and Ford Fiesta ST.
Hyundai i20 N should build on success
The South Koreans have big plans with their N division, which is headed by former BMW-M board member Albert Biermann, and are to be gradually expanded to make Hyundai a sporty brand as long as possible, which is loved by car and tuning fans all over the world World is loved. Therefore, the next logical step follows, and after the Hyundai i30 N you push the smaller brother named i20 N, which has a 1,6-liter turbo gasoline engine with 201 hp and a maximum torque of 265 Newton meters. This engine is already known from various Hyundai and Kia models, and does its job reliably and without problems. The power is transmitted via a manual 6-speed gearbox, and it is still completely open whether a dual clutch gearbox is available. In terms of top speed, the sporty small car should be at the level of the competition, although it probably has to give way to a purebred rallye like the new Toyota Yaris GR when it comes to acceleration. Nevertheless, fans of sporty small cars should get their money's worth if they get the opportunity to drive the new i20 N.
success is (almost) guaranteed
Camouflaged Erlkönige are still doing their test laps on the Nürburgring, but if the sale of the new Hyundai small car cracker starts as planned in summer, then the competition can warm up, because the South Koreans have already proven how to do it with the larger i30 N can penetrate the phalanx of the established brands in the sporting segment. It is expected that the success of Hyundai's new sports division will continue with the new i20 N, and that this model will soon be able to cast a spell over influencers and tuning fans worldwide. It remains to be seen how much media attention is focused on the new sporty small car, but if the price is right and it undercuts the German competition from Volkswagen and Ford by a few thousand euros, nothing should stand in the way of the success of the Hyundai i20 N. stand, and it should also become a cult object among tuning friends, as the big brother named i30 N has already done in a very short time.
