Just earlier this year, Hyundai Motor Company unveiled the all-new i20, and yet the company isn't showing signs of taking a break. The Korea-based company has just announced the latest model in its N Line portfolio: the all-new i20 N Line.
Hyundai releases N-Line variant for i20
The newest addition to the Hyundai family features exterior and interior design elements inspired by Hyundai’s high-performance N Line for an even sportier and more dynamic experience.
The all-new i20 N Line combines the comprehensive connectivity and safety tech features of the all‑new i20, along with N Line sportiness through upgraded interior and exterior elements.
"With the all-new i20 N Line, we are bringing our stylish and sporty trim option to the i20 for the first time. With this new model, we are ensuring we can meet the needs of an even wider customer base by offering exclusive performance-styling inspired by our N brand to emphasise the motorsport roots of our brand," shares Andreas-Christoph Hofmann Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe.
The overall aesthetic of the all-new i20 N Line’s shell design follows Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy, while at the same time offering refined performance-oriented design cues. The dedicated front bumper is subtly accented with a grey character line for a sportier feeling. It features a stylish black cascading grille equipped with the N Line badge, while the grille pattern draws on the style of a checkered flag, further emphasizing the all-new i20 N Line’s track-inspired vibe.
The N Line trim features nuanced grey accents all throughout the vehicle, as well as a stylish rear bumper, which enhance optic and aerodynamic performance of the vehicle. The triangle shaped fog lamps and chrome twin muffler exhaust system further sharpen the all-new i20 N Line’s dynamic look and sets it apart from the base model i20.
All-new i20 N Line customers can choose from four exterior color options: Phantom Black, Aurora Grey, Polar White and Brass. If a customer opts for the Polar White i20 N Line, an optional two-tone Phantom Black roof is available, offering even more room for personalization.
Inside the cabin, all-new i20 N Line customers will be greeted with N-branded sport seats, which feature the N logo and exclusive contrast red stitching, as well as a dedicated N steering wheel. Other N Line enhancements include metal pedals and the leather N gear shift knob with red inserts.
The all-new i20 N Line offers two engine choices: in addition to the standard 1.2-liter MPI engine with 82 hp, customers can also opt for the the 1.0-liter T-GDI engine with 98 hp or 118 hp.
The 1.0‑liter T‑GDI engine has been refined in terms of suspension, engine response and exhaust sound for a better, more enhanced driving experience. The all-new i20 N Line is also available with a 48-volt mild hybrid technology, resulting in greater fuel efficiency. This technology is optional with the 1.0 T-GDi engine with 98 hp and comes as standard with the 1.0 T-GDi engine with 118 hp.
Another new feature available in combination with the 48-volt mild hybrid system is the Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), which leads to even greater fuel efficiency. To match the tuned driving performance, the all-new i20 N Line offers exclusive 17‑inch alloy wheels with a two-tone finish.
The all-new i20 N Line will be available across Europe early next year.
