The second generation Hyundai i20 will be the brand's first to wear the "N" high performance badge. It will launch a year from now. According to Jurgen Grimm, Hyundai's head of powertrain:

“Think i20, there is a big logo called N and it is a sporty brand. They are thinking to set-up such a car with 1.6-litre turbo, 250 horsepower, something like that, as a kind of replica for a WRC car,” Grimm was quoted as saying by Australia’s Motoring at the Paris Auto Show.

In the Hyundai i20, the engine is expected to produce 250PS (248hp), and will compete with the likes of VW Polo R WRC and more.
