Hyundai will have another tilt at the World Rally Championship in the coming year, marking its first factory-backed run since exiting the series in 2003.

Hyundai will enter a highly modified version of its i20 light hatch, where it will take on the likes of Ford's Fiesta, the Volkswagen Polo, Citroen's DS3 and the low-and-mean MINI Countryman.

This confirms reports from earlier this year that the carmaker was planning a return to the WRC, although details of its i20 racer are still to be revealed.

It is known however that power will be provided by a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine, matched with an all-wheel-drive layout and a sequential transmission - all required under FIA regulations.

“The World Rally Championship is recognized as one of the most dramatic sporting series on earth”, Hyundai Motor Europe's Mark Hall said.

“It’s a spectacle filled with excitement and dynamism - the perfect embodiment of the Hyundai brand.”
