THEY SAY: “The i20 N blends prodigious power, pin-sharp handling and an immersive driving experience with motorsport-inspired styling, cutting edge connect and infotainment technology and advanced safety features into a practical, five-door hatchback format perfect for every day driving.”

WE SAY: Styling appeals to boy racers and the engine lacks the sparkle of the 3-cylinder unit in Ford’s Fiesta ST, however, it matters not. As a package, the i20 N is superb. Shut up and take my money.
