Hyundai i20 Vs Hyundai i20 N-Line: What's different?

The i20 N-Line starts from Rs 9.84 lakh will be sold through Hyundai's signature outlet network. The i20 N-Line offers plenty of cosmetic upgrades over the standard i20 which does make that 'N-Line' badge really speak for itself.
Hyundai India has retuned the suspension and steering set-up and fettled with the exhaust note for the Hyundai i20 N-Line and that would be the only mechanical difference between the regular i20 and the N-Line variant. While there is plenty to speak in terms of styling and badging, let's get down to what really makes the i20 N-Line stand apart from the i20.

The i20 N-Line gains N-Line classification thanks to a host of sporty design enhancements. The most noticeable feature is the completely blacked-out chequered flag front grille with N-line badging. It's hard to miss the revised bumper with bright red accents at the bottom. The red accents are also seen on the side skirts, which look fantastic with the 16-inch alloy wheels. The i20 N-Line is equipped with twin-pipped exhausts that provide a vibrant exhaust tone.
On the other hand, the normal Hyundai i20 features a gloss black honeycomb grille, LED projector headlights, LED DRLs, front lamps, Z-shaped LED taillamps, diamond cut wheels, and a dual-tone roof which is an optional extra.
