New Hyundai i20 N Line debuts with sharper looks and iMT


No, this is not the hot version of the 3rd generation i20; the i20 N is still doing some final rounds of testing. In the meantime, Hyundai has revealed the i20 N Line, which looks pretty hot too.

Speaking of which, the i20 N Line wears a sporty body kit, making the car look even more sharper than the already creasy regular i20. These include a chequered flag-inspired grille pattern, a grey accent line on the front bumper, new set of 17‑inch alloy wheels with a two-tone finish, and a sporty rear bumper that houses twin tailpipes on the right side.

Also, the chrome window line has been greyed-out for a proper dual-tone paint scheme. The example here is finished in Polar White with the optional Phantom Black roof.


The dark cockpit features N-branded steering wheel, N-branded gear selector, metal pedals and tastefully applied red accents. And of course, the seat upholstery features the mandatory red contrast stitching.

As for the business end of the story, the i20 N Line offers two engine choices. In addition to the standard 82 hp 1.2-litre petrol engine, buyers can go for the 1.0-litre T-GDI (turbocharged petrol) engine with 100 hp or 120 hp tunes; the latter gets the 48-volt mild-hybrid system as standard. The variants with the mild-hybrid system are coupled with a 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT).

In addition, the 1.0‑litre T‑GDI variants have been “refined in terms of suspension, engine response and exhaust sound for an enhanced driving experience,” Hyundai said.
