Hyundai Motorsport will use their 2016 Paris Motor Show appearance to preview their new 2017 World Rally Championship car.

The 2017 Hyundai i20 WRC will be based on its three-door Hyundai i20, which has been developed inline to meet the 2017 WRC technical regulations, which has undergone testing with the 2017 prototype since April.

Hyundai will have a temporary livery at the Paris Motor Show in October, before the final specification of the 2017 i20 WRC livery and car is revealed in December.

Team Principal Michel Nandan said “The 2017 WRC regulations have allowed all teams to start from a blank page, which has offered us an exciting engineering challenge.

“The changes will raise the level of entertainment in WRC on stages around the world with wider and more powerful cars. We have been putting our experience from two full seasons of WRC into practice, as we aim to build on our successful 2016 campaign.

“The 2017 car started testing in April with initial work centred on engine and powertrain testing. More recently, we have looked at suspension, differential and aero. There will be some small evolutions on both chassis and engine later this year. We look forward to revealing the final version of our 2017 car later this year.”
