Hyundai earlier confirmed that they will bring the N Line performance brand in India this year and finally they will unveil the India-spec i20 N Line on August 24, 2021. The i20 N Line will be positioned above the standard i20 hatchback. While the prices of the i20 N Line will be revealed by September as we got to know from sources.
- Hyundai to offer i20 N Line in 3 variants
- To be powered by a 1.0L 3-cyl turbo petrol engine
- To be offered with only iMT and DCT gearbox options and no proper manual on offer
India-spec Hyundai i20 N Line details
As of now, we got to know that Hyundai will offer the i20 N Line in three variants in India, N6 iMT, N8 iMT and N8 DCT. The N6 variant as the name suggest will be offered with an iMT gearbox option only while the top of the line N8 variant gets the option of either an iMT or a DCT automatic. There will be no manual transmission on offer which is a bit sad considering the engine to be a turbo charged unit. The engine on offer will be a sole 1.0-L turbo-petrol unit that will power the India-spec i20 N Line. This 3-cyl mill is expected to make power figures like 120 Hp and 172 NM of peak torque. Other mechanical aspects of the i20 N Line will more or less be similar to the standard car. However, to make it a N Line car it will have a sportier exhaust note and suspension setup which should help in making the car a delight to drive.
Exterior and Interior Design
Like we said before, the N Line range of car are placed below the fully blown Hyundai N performance cars. So, the i20 N Line, like other N Line models sold overseas, it will get unique design elements both on the exterior and interior to differentiate it from the standard Hyundai i20.
Coming to exterior, both the front and rear bumpers get sporty design with the front grille getting a chequered flag design. Some more sporty elements includes front and side skirts and a rear diffuser on the bumper. The i20 N Line will also get twin exhaust tips and larger alloy wheels along with contrasting black bits. On the interior, i20 N Line gets prominent N badging, sportier front seats, a bespoke steering wheel, sporty aluminum pedals and an N-branded gear knob.
Hyundai i20 N Line launch and pricing details
While Hyundai will reveal the India-sped i20 N Line on 24th of August, we expect Hyundai to starts the bookings for the car in the coming week with the announcement of the price and launch by September. According to some sources, the i20 N Line is expected to be priced around Rs1-1.5 lakh more than the standard i20 range currently on sale in India
