Hyundai is adding the i20 Sport special edition model to its model range on the German market.
Probably the biggest news here is the new 1.0-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit that is working under the hood together with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Developed at Hyundai’s German technical center in Russelsheim, the engine is equipped with a single-scroll turbo and delivers healthy 120 horsepower and 126 pound feet of torque. No acceleration and top speed figures have been provided.
The i20 Sport is a 5-door hatch with 18-inch wheels and a 20mm lowered suspension. In terms of design, the sporty vehicle comes exclusively in a Polar White paint job with contrasting blue decals. Notable aerodynamic improvements include new side skirts, rear spoiler, and new diffuser for the rear bumper with integrated chrome exhaust pipe.
Standard equipment also features keyless entry and engine start, projector headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights, and Grayish Blue interior.
Sales of the Hyundai i20 Sport in Germany will kick off from spring of 2016 with prices starting from $21,470 (€19,990).
Until now, the most powerful i20 model was the i20 N Sport, featuring a 1.4-liter naturally aspirated engine with 115 hp.
