The Hyundai i20 N Line will be available with a 1.0L turbo-petrol engine and will be offered with some changes to the exterior and interior design as compared to the standard model.
Hyundai I20 N Line
Hyundai Motor India has officially confirmed that the i20 N Line will debut in the Indian market on August 24. The new model will essentially be a performance special variant of the i20 hatchback, with only a few changes over the standard model. The teaser of the i20 N Line has revealed that it will get a new front grille and a dual-tip exhaust. Other changes in the exterior design will include a restyled front bumper, side skirts, and a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser.
The Hyundai i20 N will also get larger 17-inch alloy wheels with a new machine-cut design. New exterior paint options will also be offered and of course, there will be ‘N Line’ badges on the front and back. However, the change in interior styling will not be that much. The dashboard design will remain the same but the cabin is likely to get an all-black color scheme. The accelerator and brake pedals will be sporty looking metal units and the steering wheel will be a new three-spoke unit.
Other features will include a digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Blue Link connected car tech, cooled glovebox, keyless entry, push-button start/stop, wireless smartphone charging, etc.
What will be special in Hyundai i20 N Line
A single engine option on the N Line i20 will be a 1.0-litre turbo GDI motor. Similar to the standard model, this motor will generate 120 PS of maximum power and 172 Nm of peak torque. It will be available with two transmission options, i.e. a 6-speed IMT and a 7-speed DCT. Though the power figures are no different from the standard i20, the N Line variant will be more fun to drive as Hyundai will tweak the suspension for a sportier ride-handling balance. The steering will also be reworked to improve feel and feedback and the new exhaust will also improve engine sound.
We expect its price to start from around Rs 11 lakh (ex-showroom), which is slightly more expensive than the regular i20. In our market, Volkswagen Polo TSI and Tata Altroz i-Turbo will be its closest rivals.
