Describing the i20 N, Neuville said the hot hatch is a “very interesting car. Very precise. Very easy handling. The engine is revving nicely and the noise is very interesting as well. I’m looking forward to get this one to drive in WRC!”
On the i20 WRC, Neuville added “The WRC cars really push to the extreme. And every detail is fine tuned to get the maximum performance and also to be adapted to a driving style.” The rally driver also describes the RM19 as “very easy to drive. I had a big smile on my face because I was driving sideways quite a lot,” he said.
The Hyundai i20 N prototype is covered in camouflage, but the larger brakes, lower suspension, and twin exhaust pipes make it obvious we’re not looking at the standard i20.
