Hyundai i20 N Line launched at Rs. 9.84 lakh

The Hyundai i20 N Line has finally arrived in India. It is priced at 9.84 lakh (ex-showroom, India) and is one of the most anticipated vehicles this year. A sportier suspension setup, as well as a sportier exhaust note, distinguish the Hyundai i20 N Line from the regular Hyundai i20.

It is the first Hyundai performance car in India from Hyundai’s N division. More models will follow in the future. Models in the N Line receive only cosmetic and mechanical upgrades. A fully-fledged N model in India still seems like a far-off dream.

Powertrain Details:

As the i20 N Line is geared for enthusiasts, let’s examine what’s under the hood. In addition to the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that runs the regular i20, Hyundai offers the i20 N Line with a 120hp, 172Nm turbodiesel engine. An iMT or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is available with the engine. The paddle shifters provide additional driver engagement with the DCT gearbox. With the turbo-petrol engine, Hyundai has missed the chance to introduce a manual transmission in the i20 N Line.

In addition to the notable mechanical upgrades, there are a few features that make it unique. A new set of dual-tip exhaust pipes at the back gives the i20 N Line a sportier exhaust note. This suspension setup offers better handling and a more planted drive around corners. Moreover, Hyundai claims that its i20 N Line has a better on-centre steering feel. The standard i20 only has front disc brakes, so the rear disc brakes, a significant upgrade, offer better stopping power.

Exterior Details:

The i20 N Line really stands out with its styling, and it surely does get a lot of attention. A new front splitter and deep-set fog lamp housings add sporty touches to the front bumper. In the new grille, N Line’s logo is implemented along with a ‘chequered flag’-inspired design. Adding a touch of sportiness, the bumper’s red accents finish off the overall look.

The i20 N Line is distinguished by its innovative 16-inch alloy wheel design. Additionally, the front brake callipers are red, as are the side sill garnishes. There’s a new sportier bumper with a prominent diffuser and twin exhaust pipes at the rear, as well as a tailgate spoiler with side wings and a dark chrome garnish between the two taillights.

A total of five paint options are available for the i20 N Line – Thunder blue (a new and exclusive colour), Fiery red, Titan grey, and Polar white – and two dual-tone colours – Thunder blue with Phantom black roof and Fiery red with Phantom black roof.

Interior Details:

There is little difference in the general design of the dashboard between the standard car and the N line. The interior of the vehicle is all black, but red accents and ambient lighting add flavour. Additionally, there will be a new chequered flag design for the leatherette seats, sporty metal pedals, a bespoke three-spoke steering wheel, and an N-branded leather gear knob.

All of the features from the top-end version of the regular i20 is carried over to the newly introduced N Line. As a result, it comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 7-speaker Bose sound system, wireless phone charging, a single-pane sunroof, cruise control, automatic climate control, and several other things.

Besides this, the i20 N Line offers new voice recognition functions and an updated Bluelink app in addition to 16 free over-the-air map updates. The safety features include six airbags, a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), an automatic headlamp, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSC), and Side Assistance Control (HAC).

Pricing and Rivals:

Hyundai’s i20 N Line is competitively priced. For about 50,000 more than the Asta(O) DCT, the N8 DCT gets you a sportier exterior, better interior, mechanical upgrades to the suspension, improved safety with rear disc brakes, and of course, twin exhaust tips.

Price Details of Hyundai i20 N Line (ex-showroom, Delhi)

i20 N Line Price Standard i20 Price
N6 iMT Rs 9.84 lakh Sportz iMT Rs 8.81 lakh
N8 iMT Rs 10.87 lakh Asta iMT Rs 9.91 lakh
N8 DCT Rs 11.75 lakh Asta(O) DCT Rs 11.25 lakh

 

In this segment, there aren’t any real hot hatchbacks, but the Hyundai i20 N Line will compete with the other enthusiast favourite, the Volkswagen Polo GT TSI, which starts at Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
