The heart of i20 N is a powerful 1.6-litre turbocharged engine delivering a maximum output of 150 kW power and 275 Nm of torque, giving i20 N a class-leading power-to-weight ratio. Power is delivered through a mechanical limited-slip differential giving the i20 N amazing grip and a corner rascal character befitting of this staunch little hot hatch.

Petrol 1.6 T-GDi (150 kW) engine.

Powered by a 150 kW 1.6-litre turbocharged GDi engine that delivers and 275 Nm max. torque – you’ll love the instant feedback you get from its high responsiveness and impressive flat power for more torque and power at lower RPMs. This lets you utilize more of the engine’s potential in everyday driving situations.

6-speed Manual Transmission.

Automatic Rev Matching.

At the push of a button, the automatic rev-matching helps you to get the most out of the short-throw six-speed manual. Further enhancing the experience, the driver can activate the rev-matching button on the steering wheel to allow smoother or sporter downshifts depending on what drive mode is selected

Launch Control.

Accelerate with authority: Launch Control prevents tyre slippage and ensures optimal traction when you perform a powerful start.

N traction and stability control.

Developed in-house, the traction and stability control is like a good co-pilot, helping when necessary but otherwise being quiet, never disturbing your driving fun. If desired, it can be switched off completely.

N Corner carving differential.

The Mechanical Limited Slip Differential controls the power transfer to each front wheel. It improves steering and stability in high speed turns.

Active variable exhaust system.

Pump up the volume. Select different levels of exhaust sound – relatively restrained in Normal mode, to the crackling “after-burn” growl in N mode with added fuel detonations, like a rally car.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)

Combining radar and camera data, the FCA system autonomously activates the brakes when it detects dangerous and sudden braking by the car ahead or pedestrians on the road.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW)

A driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, an audible sound and message on the display panel will bring this to the driver’s attention.

Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)

Using two radar sensors in the lower rear bumper, the system warns you of traffic in the blind spot area. Should you set the turn indicator in such a situation, it will sound an acoustic alert and a warning in the supervision cluster to prevent a collision.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

LKA provides steering intervention to assist the vehicle to stay in the centre of the lane. When the vehicle strays from the intended lane without indicators being activated, an audible and visual warning will be sounded.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)

When reversing out of areas with low visibility, the system not warns the driver if vehicles, pedestrians or cycles approach from the side.

High Beam Assistance (HBA)

LED high and low beam headlights automatically adjust to meet the needs of the environment and surrounds allowing you to concentrate on the road ahead whilst driving at night.
