Default Rumour: Hyundai i20 Turbo spied for the first time

Hyundai Europe is busy testing a new engine variation for the freshly revealed Hyundai i20. Would rival the Volkswagen Polo GTI and Ford Fiesta ST.
Likely to be shown at the Frankfurt Motor show -2015

What appears to be the Hyundai i20 Turbo has been caught on camera for the very first time ahead of next year's possible launch
Quote:
The identity of the engine is not known at this point, but the i20 Turbo could use a detuned version of the 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from its bigger brother where it churns 186 PS (137 kW) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque. If this turns out to be true, the i20 Turbo will likely have approximately 150 PS (110 kW) which should be enough for a feisty little machine on the budget.

This is a five-door hatchback, but Hyundai also has a three-door coupe version of the new i20 and chances are this will receive the Turbo treatment as well since the i30 Turbo is available in both body styles.

Default re: Rumour: Hyundai i20 Turbo spied for the first time

The Turbo model is partly derived from the i20 rally model. The suspension is tuned to be harder with a company claim of re-worked steering capability. The proof is all there in the below video :



As one can see the different tail-lamps of the i20 rally car is one of the key differences with its city-friendly model, as also the extended wheel-well and lighter chassis the prev-gen i20 is also being tested for under-chassis drive components. Hope this model can bring in a better name for Hyundai in terms of driving & handling. The engine should be a smaller version of the newly released i30 Turbo's 1.6 litre 183 BHP one, perhaps a 1.4 at best.

Already launched in India earlier this year, the Hyundai i20 Active has now been spied in southern Spain which means a European launch is being planned.

Quote:
The new Euro-spec i20, will be further expanded by the addition of a slightly rugged version featuring a jacked up suspension, plastic body cladding and roof rails. Based on the Indian-spec i20 Active, expect its European counterpart to be 10 mm longer, 26 mm wider and 50 mm taller than the standard hatch and will benefit from a 20 mm increased ground clearance (at 190 mm).
Quote:
Will come exclusively with a FWD layout and should carry over the engines from the other two body styles which are soon bound to receive a punchier three-cylinder, 1.0-liter turbo joining the 1.25- and 1.4-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated gasoline units and the 1.1- and 1.4-liter turbodiesels.
