Hyundai is offering a sporty touch on the current generation i20. The small hatchback now benefits from the N Line specification.
The i20 N Line combines exterior and interior design elements inspired by Hyundai’s high-performance N range with comprehensive connectivity and safety technology shared throughout the i20 range.
Exterior design changes for the i20 N Line begin with a dedicated front bumper with a grey character line and black cascading grille equipped with the N Line badge. Bespoke 17” alloy wheels, side skirts and privacy glass change the side profile, while a redesigned rear bumper housing the signature N triangular rear fog lamp and dual exhaust muffler completes the sporty look. Interior changes include red accents to the door trims, heating and ventilation controls, as well as red stitching to the N branded seats. A leather N branded steering wheel and gear lever feature as standard, as does a black headlining.
All i20 N Line models are powered by a 1.0 turbocharged GDi engine which combines with a 48 Volt Mild Hybrid system to provide a 120PS whilst customers are offered the choice of two transmissions, an intelligent 6 speed manual (iMT) that features an electronically controlled clutch to decouple the transmission from the engine under certain driving conditions to enhance efficiency, or a 7 speed dual clutch transmission which combines optimum fuel consumption and automatically controlled gear changes.
The N Line trim features the standard Hyundai high level of specification, with key equipment including LED headlamps and rear combination lamps, LED daytime running lights, a 10.25 inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25 inch touchscreen satellite navigation system including Traffic Messaging Channel, DAB, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluelink Telematics. Steering wheel audio and phone controls are standard, as is Bluetooth Connectivity with voice recognition.
Prices start at £22,395 for the manual version and at £23,645 for the automatic one.
