• Hyundai preparing i20 GTI

According to Autocar, Hyundai is preparing a hot diesel version (is that an oxymoron?) of the new Hyundai i20 hatchback sold in Europe. This new version will be powered by Hyundai’s 1.6-liter diesel engine that can deliver around 200bhp. The "GTI" i20 should make the 0-60mph sprint in less than 8 seconds and will hit a top speed of 130 mph.

Hyundai is trying to attract younger buyers with for good performance while keeping sub-120g/km CO2 emissions. It would be a direct and potentially cheaper rival for another Euro-only car, the Skoda Fabia RS.
