The Hyundai i20 N Line retails in two trim levels, namely N6 and N8, and here’s all that they get on board
With the i20 N Line, Hyundai’s performance division made its debut in the Indian market earlier this year. It was a piece of great news for the enthusiasts that had been waiting for the South Korean company’s performance-oriented offerings.
The i20 N Line is based on the top-spec trim of the regular i20 – Asta. However, it is offered in two trim options – N6 and N8. The N Line features a lot of design changes in comparison to the regular i20 that is already on sale. Mechanically, it remains nearly the same as the i20’s Turbo variant.
The i20 N Line’s features list is quite extensive; it comes standard with all-four disc brakes, 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, dual-tip muffler, red inserts on the front and rear lip, a tyre pressure monitoring system and much more.
Safety aids like electronic stability control, hill start assist, red brake callipers, and reverse parking camera also come as standard fitment across the range. The top-end N8 trim further includes auto-dimming IRVM, Bose sound system, red ambient lighting, height-adjustable seat belts, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, a sliding front armrest, and 6 airbags.
Powering the i20 N Line is a 1.0L three-pot turbo-petrol motor, producing 120 PS and 172 Nm of max output. There are two gearbox options on offer – 6-speed iMT and 7-speed DCT. However, only the latter is offered with steering-mounted paddle shifters.
