The past was always better, or not. It seems that it is part of our culture to value the future as a dark, bitter place and worse than what we have experienced. In the automotive world it is even more pronounced with the arrival of electrification. Fortunately, some firms are committed to keeping both areas in their portfolio to the public. The most striking example is that of Hyundai and its N range , which has been increasing at the same rate as its electric models. Two sides of the same coin that allow us to enjoy machines as well adjusted as the Hyundai i20 N.
For those who are passionate about cars, who vibrate with every acceleration and enjoy the smell of gasoline, the plugs represent the abandonment of the taste for driving. I do not blame them, driving an electric has nothing to do with doing the same with a combustion model. Their reactions are tame, easy, and even boring. None of that awaits behind the wheel of the Hyundai i20 N, a car designed and developed in World Rally Champion (WRC) tests since 2017. Before it was his older brother, the Hyundai i30 N of which we keep such good memories and which has stood up to the most iconic such as the Volkswagen Golf, Cupra León or Ford Focus RS. In addition, it has done so being consistent, without standing out for its enormous power but for a set-up worthy of the best stages of the world championship.
That experience is what we have also had in the i20 N, which has the same amount of sportiness but in a smaller bag. This formula may not suit everyone, starting because its habitability and trunk are not the most suitable to expand the family, but it drives others crazy. As the saying goes: ” good perfume is sold in a small bottle .” So, with a size of 4.07 meters long by 1.77 m wide and 1.44 m high, with a wheelbase of 2.58 m, the Hyundai i20 N is one of the best candidates to become into the favorite toy for adults . We tell you why in the following gallery.
