Hyundai N Line range launch confirmed for India in 2021 with Hyundai i20 N Line
Hyundai has announced it will launch its range of N Line models available globally in the Indian market this year. The N Line is the entry point into the Hyundai performance line-up and gets sportier styling inside and out, and sharper engine and suspension tuning. This is unlike the full N models which come with significant mechanical and power upgrades.
Hyundai i20 N Line exterior and interior changes
The first N Line branded product for the Indian market is expected to be the Hyundai i20 N Line. There should be 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.
Hyundai i20 N Line engine and specifications
The i20 N Line should be available with the turbo-petrol option of the standard Hyundai i20. So the 1.0-litre three-cylinder T-GDi should make an appearance here too, in its 120PS and 172 Nm form. This should pair with either a seven-speed DCT or a six-speed iMT. Separating the N Line will be a more dynamic suspension tune although a power bump isn't expected.
Hyundai i20 N Line launch date expected prices
The N Line range should launch in India in the next few weeks, just as the festive season starts to pick up. Expect the Hyundai i20 N Line to be based on the top version of the Hyundai i20, prices of which start from Rs 10 lakh for the iMT versions, going up to Rs 11.40 for the DCTs. The N Line should come as a Rs 50,000 to 60,000 premium over this.
