The leaked type approval certificates show that the Hyundai i20 N Line will be offered with the iMT clutchless manual transmission as well as with the 7-speed DCT. Both will be paired with the 1.0-litre three-cylinder T-GDi turbo-petrol which should make an appearance here in its 120PS and 172 Nm form. The iMT will be offered in the top Asta(O) variant while two new variants exclusive to the N Line - N6 and N8 - will also be available. The DCT will come in two options, the Asta(O) and the N8. Separating the N Line will be a more dynamic suspension tune although a power bump isn't expected.

The Hyundai i20 N Line should be offered with a new grille with the N 'chequered flag' motif, subtle side skirts, and a revised rear bumper with twin exhausts along with gloss black highlights all around. There should be a new look to the alloy wheels with sizes increasing to 17-inches and well as separate paint pallets to choose from. On the inside, there should be an N-specific steering wheel and upholstery, metal pedals and gear shifter, adding to the N-themed fully-digital instrumentation and 10.25-inch central touchscreen and also BlueLink connectivity.
