Hyundai is set to become the latest automaker to introduce a new performance-focused sub-brand.

The new Hyundai N sub-brand will make its debut during the Frankfurt Motor Show next month as the Korean maker lifts the covers off a modified version of its compact i20 model set to compete in the World Rally Car program.
