New Hyundai Turbo Engine Coming

Hyundai I30 N 2021 1024 0b

Hyundai is reportedly developing a new turbocharged engine that will power future N models. 

Hyundai’s N division has grown in leaps and bounds since the brands first N model, the i30 N, was revealed back in 2017. The good news is that there’s lots more to look forward to from Hyundai’s N performance division in the future. 

Locally, South Africans can look forward to the arrival of the updated i30 N DCT in 2021 but globally, exciting developments such as the i20 N, Tucson N, Kona N and Elantra N are on the horizon too. 

In a report by Korean Car Blog, it’s been reported that Hyundai is developing a new 2.3-litre turbocharged engine derived from the brand’s experience in the World Rally Championship (WRC) and it’s expected to redline at an impressive 7 000 rpm. Power outputs have yet to be revealed but if we had to hazard a guess, outputs of over 250 kW and at least 450 Nm on tap. 

This new engine will provide Hyundai’s N division with greater competitiveness to take on long-established performance brands such as Mercedes-AMG, BMW M and Audi RS. 

We will keep you updated as soon as more details regarding this new powerplant become available.
