Is Hyundai Working On An i10 N? These Spy Shots Seem To Suggest It

Earlier this month we saw the first official teaser image for the all-new Hyundai i10 and we were quite impressed with it.

If that design sketch has anything to do with reality, the 2020 Hyundai i10 should be one of the best-looking city cars on the European market. However, we did find it a bit too aggressive-looking for a regular city car and now we think we know why.

The photos you see in the gallery below are likely of the next-generation Hyundai i10 N, the go-fast version of the mini car. We believe that’s the car in the sketch too, although in these spy shots the prototype is completely covered in black canvas and camouflage tape.

Spied during hot weather testing, this i10 features something never before seen on a 2020 Hyundai i10 prototype: two big round exhaust pipes. A closer look also reveals a sportier looking grille flanked by two round additional lights, big air intakes in the bumper, as well as larger, wider wheels in a sporty design with a red center cap.

All these elements hint at a sporty model that would compete with the VW Up! GTI. There are no clues regarding the engine in the Hyundai i10 N but we sure hope it delivers around 150 horsepower. It could be a turbocharged three-cylinder engine or even a turbo-four unit.

Whatever it is, expect it to work with a manual transmission. The Hyundai N wizards should also fit a sports suspension and beefier brakes to the performance division’s smallest model. Of course, we could also be looking at an i10 N-Line which combines sporty design cues with a regular engine. What do you think?
