Hyudai N Line India Launch Teased: i20 N Line To Be The First Model

Hyundai teases the India launch of its N Line cars. The i20 N Line could be the first model to launch under the N performance brand, with the hot hatch spied testing several times in the country. Hyundai's N Line sub-division will debut in India later this year.

The Hyundai N Line performance cars are visually and mechanically enhanced over the standard models sold by the brand. This includes body kits, performance exhaust, suspension, tyres, and an upgraded engine as well.

According to Hyundai, the N Line cars in India are based on three brand values: motorsport-inspired styling cues, accessibility for all, and everyday excitement.

The N Line cars will feature motorsport-inspired styling cues, thereby creating a sporty appeal.

According to the company, Hyundai N Line cars will be affordable for all driving enthusiasts to fulfil their aspirations and enjoy the thrill of sporty driving.

Commenting on the introduction of N Line, S S Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd., said, "As the country's leading smart mobility solutions provider, Hyundai has been redefining the mobility landscape with products that take customer aspirations to new heights. The introduction of our N Line range to India will induce sporty experiences like never before, making every drive a fun experience with products that personify excitement and athleticism."

He further added, "As an organization committed to India, Hyundai has been introducing superior products and services for customers. We have surpassed customer expectations and assumed leadership across various segments by winning the hearts and minds of our most valued customers. With N Line, Hyundai Motor India will continue to challenge new boundaries and introduce new cars that amplify the aspirations and personalities of new-age Millennial and Gen Z buyers."

S S Kim, added, "To augment customer delight, we will introduce a new N Line model in 2021 and subsequently launch additional N Line models for Indian customers over the next few years."

Globally, the i20 N Line is offered in two engine options. There is a 1.6-litre T-GDi engine paired with a 6-speed manual and a 1.0-litre T-GDi turbo-petrol engine paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT.

The treatment at the rear is also similar and has been enhanced for sporty looks. The performance hatchback will also feature 17 or 18-inch alloy wheels.

      On the inside, the i20 N Line will continue to come loaded with a ton of features including the large touchscreen, digital instrument cluster, and connected technology; among others.
