Hyundai will return to the World Rally Championship in 2014, it will reveal at the Paris Motorshow at the end of September.
The South Korean firm will compete with its i20 model, developed by and most likely run from its in-house R&D facility in Russelsheim, Germany.
It has not contested the WRC since mid-2003, when the plug was pulled on its programme with the Accent WRC built by Motor Sports Development.
An i20 concept car will be on display in Paris, although the WRC machine is not expected to begin testing for some time.
No comment was available from Hyundai.
