2021 Hyundai i20 N prototype video review: the Fiesta ST's biggest rival?


Recommended Posts

The new Hyundai i20 N won't go on sale until 2021 but we've had a brief chance to drive the car in prototype form, ahead of its launch.

When it arrives, we think the 1.6-litre turbocharged hot hatchback will be aimed squarely at the Ford Fiesta ST. The raw ingredients are all there. It has 204hp (201bhp), drives through an optional limited-slip differential and has a six-speed manual gearbox. It'll do 0-60mph in 6.7 seconds and have a top speed of 143mph.

As tested here, on both road and track, the car is around 95% complete, according to Hyundai's N engineers. Find out what Matt Prior thinks of it in a Nurburgring test. 

We expect the i20 N to go on sale in the spring of 2021, priced at around £20,000. We'll have more details nearer the time, so if you give us a subscribe or turn on post notifications, you won't miss a thing.
