Hyundai reveals its 2017 WRC challenger

December 1, 2016 – Hyundai has taken the wraps off its 2017 World Rally Championship challenger with which it aims to fight for the title with its drivers Thierry Neuville, Dani Sordo and Hayden Paddon.

The i20 Coupe WRC runs a 36mm rather than 33mm turbo restrictor, which increases power from 300bhp to 380bhp, while significantly more aerodynamic downforce and a centre differential have made the car quicker through the corners.

Hyundai finished the 2016 World Rally Championship in second place behind Volkswagen in the Constructors’ Championship, while Thierry Neuville finished second behind Sebastien Ogier in the Drivers’ Championship.
