We test it in the UK for the first timeThat said, the adoption of the 48V mild-hybrid 1.0-litre engine is a definite boon, the well-integrated 16bhp starter-generator giving a little fillip of torque-fill at low speeds to give the car a bigger-hearted feel than its 998cc capacity would suggest.

After the Corona-related cancellation of the race in Zandvoort, the Netherlands, the ADAC TCR Germany will start at the Lausitzring for the second time this season. At the opening race, the Hyundai Team Engstler had shown a strong performance: Nico Gruber clinched a victory at his premiere in the championship, Antti Buri took a pole position and came third twice.
