On September 2, the Hyundai i20 N Line, described as a sportier version of the ordinary i20, will be released in India. The i20 N Line features a new chequered flag-style grille, a reworked front bumper with new fog lamp housings, ‘N Line’ badges all over the car, new alloy wheels, red accents all over, red brake callipers, and twin exhaust tips as far as differences go. The exhaust tips aren’t just for show; they also produce a raspy exhaust noise that complements the sporty look.
Hyundai has a new steering wheel design, black leather with red stitching, red embellishments, and even red ambient lighting within the interior. The ‘N Line’ emblem can also be found on the steering wheel and gear levers, as well as the ‘N’ insignia on the front seats.
The same 1-litre turbo-petrol engine will power the i20 N Line as the ordinary hatchback. It still makes 120 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, but Hyundai claims to have changed the engine’s tune and characteristics. It can be combined with either a 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual) or a 7-speed DCT (double clutch transmission) (dual-clutch transmission). The dampers have been stiffened by 30%, and the steering wheel has been weighted, resulting in a more sporting setting. Last but not least, the i20 N Line features rear-wheel disc brakes.
The i20 N Line will be available in two trim levels: N6 and N8. The former is exclusively available with the iMT, whereas the latter can also be paired with a DCT. Thunder Blue (new), Fiery Red, Titan Grey, Polar White, Thunder Blue (with black roof), and Fiery Red will be available on the i20 N Line (with black roof).
