Hyundai i20 N could get a 201 BHP 1.6L turbo-petrol engine

Hyundai is working on a sportier version of the third generation i20 called the i20 N. Reports suggest that it could be powered by a 1.6-litre, turbocharged petrol engine.

The 1.6-litre unit is the same engine that is available in the Veloster. In the i20 N, it is expected to produce 201 BHP and 260 Nm of torque. It could be paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It might also get a 6-speed manual gearbox option.

Back in March 2020, Hyundai had released a teaser image of the i20 N. The car could get sportier front and rear bumpers and sweptback headlamps with V-shaped LED daytime running lights. At the rear, the i20 N is likely to get a roof spoiler. The car also appears to be sporting alloy wheels shod with low-profile tyres.

The third generation Hyundai i20 is expected to debut in India sometime this year. The sportier i20 N however is unlikely to make it to our shores.
