The pocket rocket category was far from overflowing this year, and 2021 won't exactly offer more options than the average hot-hatch fan could stomach having to choose from – but at least there's now one more.
Revealed this past week, the i20 N is a proper full-bottle N offering – only the second, after the i30 versions (or third if you want to count body shapes in the mix).
It draws power from the same 1.6-litre turbo petrol that powers the 'warm' N Line versions of its bigger cousins, but with 150kW and 275Nm on tap, it is certainly competitive with the 147kW/290Nm 1.5-litre three-pot turbo petrol Fiesta ST and the 147kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo petrol Polo GTI.
Our man Joshua Dowling drive a prototype recently at Wakefield, which you can read about and watch right here – but you can also check out a full gallery below. Enjoy!
