The car our crews are driving to success.

Initially designed in 2014 by Hyundai’s R&D Centre in Namyang and manufactured at our HQ in Alzenau, Germany, the i20 Coupe WRC specs were the result of our team of experts working around the clock for twelve months to manufacture a serious competitor.

Since 2014, when the first model competed on the roads of the WRC events, the i20 Coupe WRC has been upgraded both for better performance on the tracks and to continue to comply with regulations.

With the i20 Coupe WRC, our teams have secured victories on all terrains – gravel, snow, mixed, and tarmac – and have also claimed the manufacturer's title. Twice.

  1. i20 Coupe Road Version

    The Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC 2021 has one of the most potent powertrains in a WRC car, with a 4x4 system. The electronic central differential complements the sequential gearboxes and other systems, ensuring WRC cars are at the cutting edge of technology. It has a number of aerodynamic devices including wings at its front and rear to improve the car’s downforce.

    Larger rear wings have become more efficient, giving drivers more grip on high-speed rally stages. Its size remains the same as that of the model from 2017. With a minimum increase of width, the i20 Coupe WRC 2021 is as dashing a WRC car as ever.

        i20 WRC Evolution.

        Twelve months was all our team of experts had to create the ambitious i20 WRC version back in 2014. Despite the time constraint, the i20 Coupe WRC boasted powerful engineering which has seen year-over-year performance enhancements and significant changes to gain a competitive edge over other competitors and comply with IFA technical regulations.
