Hyundai had previously announced that the company will be bringing in their N-Line performance range of models to the Indian market. These N-Line range of models are essentially a more powerful version of some of the standard products already on sale.
The images though did reveal a few design elements, confirming that the model being tested is indeed part of Hyundai’s N-Line range. These elements include the dual exhaust tips at the back and a set of larger alloy wheels.
The Hyundai i20 N-Line is also expected to feature a slightly different body kit as compared to the standard. This includes a larger front grille, revised bumper with a bigger air intake, ‘N-Line’ badging on the front grille, contrasting highlights all around, new side skirts and side sills and a few other changes as well.
Apart from the cosmetic changes, the upcoming Hyundai i20 N-Line is also said to feature a few mechanical upgrades as well. This includes the suspension setup and the brakes.
The new i20 N-Line is expected to be powered by the same 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine as on the standard model. This engine will produce 120bhp and 172Nm of peak torque. However, the exact details of the engine and powertrain are yet to be announced. Hyundai is expected to price the Hyundai i20 N-Line at a slight premium, compared to the standard model. The performance variant is expected to be offered with a price tag starting at around Rs 12 lakh, ex-showroom.
Apart from the ‘N-Line’ version, Hyundai is also expected to import its full-blown ‘i20 N’ model to India as well. This full-blown Hyundai i20 N will come with a more powerful 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine. It produces 204bhp and 275Nm of peak torque. This model will be imported by Hyundai as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), making use of their 2,500 units import allowance without homologation.
