HYUNDAI'S new sporty i20 N hatchback will cost from £24,995 and you can order yours now.
With 201bhp from its turbocharged 1.6 litre petrol engine, the i20 N will hit 62mph in a claimed 6.7 seconds and reach 142mph flat out. Official fuel economy is 40.4mpg with emissions of 158g/km.
A launch control system ensures a maximum-power acceleration start to every track drive. A press of the red button on the steering wheel initiates Hyundai's rev-matching technology, providing controlled gear downshift with double-declutching function.
Five driving modes, Normal, Eco, Sport, N and N Custom, are offered by Hyundai's N Grin Control System, and the driver can also create a preferred exhaust note, thanks to the variable muffler control system.
The i20 N is offered in seven paint finishes with Polar White paint in a solid finish at no additional cost. The colour pallet also includes optional Dragon Red, Phantom Black, and Intense Blue pearl effect paint finishes and Sleek Silver and Brass metallic paint finish, at £550 each. Optional Performance Blue special paint is also available at £550.
All paint colour finishes (excluding Phantom Black) are offered with an optional two-tone roof in black, priced at £500.
Inside, there are heated front seats in fabric and leather and a heated steering wheel. Every model is also equipped with a 10.25ins centre console display touchscreen satellite navigation system, including Traffic Messaging Channel, Mapcare and Live Services.
The digital supervision cluster also incorporates features such as the LED red zone, which varies the intensity of its hue according to criteria such as engine oil temperatures and the gear shift-timing indication to inform the driver on the optimum point to change gear.
Further 'track day coaching' can be provided by the car's performance driving data system to monitor and improve the driver's track skills. This feature saves and displays driving data, including information on power, torque, turbo boost. It also comes with a lap and acceleration timer.
