Will Hyundai give us this mid-engine hot hatch?

By Faiming_low on 12 Apr 2015 in Concept cars, Videos

Attached Image Recently shown at the Seoul Motor Show, Hyundai's RM15 concept should have caught the hot hatch fans' attention. Using the Veloster's body, it ditches the front-wheel drive, front-engine layout for a mid-engined, rear-wheel drive one. Now that would have gotten your attention i hope!
Using a 2.0-litre turbocharged T-GDI engine that is transversely-mounted behind the two-seater cabin and in front of the rear axle, it produces 296bhp and 382Nm of torque, allowing the car to hit 100km/h in 4.7 seconds.
Other interesting facts to note include a weight saving of 195kg over the original structure and a weight distribution of 43:57. The car runs on 19-inch monoblock forged alloy wheels and uses aluminium double-wishbone suspension.
With so many front-wheel and all-wheel drive hot hatches in the market, this would be an interesting addition to the segment if it does make it into production!
