is already testing a new car for the WRC based on this model, while taking part in the championship this season.

The first test of the car happened last month in Germany with the French driver Bryan Bouffier taking the commands of the new i20 WRC. The main objective was to verify all systems and start collecting important data for future development stages.

The new i20 is based on the new generation B-segment model of Hyundai and is completely new, compared with the current vehicle. However, Hyundai Motorsport will use all the experience it has been accumulating in WRC in the development of the new car.

According to the Director of Hyundai Motorsport Team the car will only start competing when the team is sure it is ready to replace the current i20 WRCi20 WRCHyundai i20 WRCRepublic of Korea, 2013 > present3 photos
. Michel Nandan says that the team is not rushing the process and that the new car will be totally different. The differences can be found on the platform, the length, width and height, as well as new engine, gearbox and other components.

Nandan also refers that this will be a long process and that Hyundai will continue to work hard over the upcoming months and in 2015.
