Hyundai reveals new i20 WRC car

Hyundai reveals new i20 WRC car


Hyundai Motorsport unveiled the new i20 WRC car for the 2016 season. It will race all 14 events of the 2016 calendar, and the driver's roster remains the same. Dani Sordo, Hayden Paddon, and Thierry Neuville are confirmed for a full 2016 season with Hyundai Motorsport and the New Generation i20.


Hyundai Motorsport wanted to build the new rally car on the latest three-door i20 for this season. But, a delay in the vehicle's homologation meant they had to continue with the five-door version, similar to the Elite i20 in India. The WRC i20 comes with a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder turbo engine, producing an astounding 300bhp and 295Nm of torque. It runs a four-wheel-drive system with two mechanical differentials both front and rear, and a six-speed sequential gearbox.

The frame has been made and exported from their manufacturing plant in Chennai.

Hyundai Motorsport Team Principal Michel Nandan said: "It is a special moment for all of us at Hyundai Motorsport to reveal the New Generation i20 WRC to the world today in our own home. We are entering an exciting phase in our young team's journey, which I think will reinforce our commitment and ambition in the competitive WRC community.”
