2017 Hyundai i20 WRC Review

Hyundai has made some improvement to this car to comply with FIA’s newest regulations as well as to make sure they can reserve the best spot. The prototype of this car was displayed in last Paris Motor Show. And, although it was not the final design that will go to WRC, it can give us a glimpse of what Hyundai will bring to that prestigious championship.

The overall design of 2017 Hyundai i20 WRC will be based on the 3-door Hyundai i20. However, to comply with new FIA regulation that requires the rally car to be wider and longer, the design in the new car will be improved. In result, i20 WRC will have the stronger vibe but still possess the characteristic of the current version i20. The most important updates are on the distinctive front end and larger rear wing. Moreover, we will also see a different side skirt as well as rear wheel arches. Most of those tweaks are made for the sake of increasing downforce that at the end of the day will upgrade the overall performance of the car. Engine Specifications Just like the design, FIA also makes a new regulation regarding the diameter of the restrictor. Now, the cars are allowed to have restrictor with 36 mm diameter which is 3 mm wider than last year regulation. Thanks to this new regulation, the 1.6 L engine in this car will get horsepower upgrade which will make the car run faster.
