Hyundai Motor India unveiled i20 N Line, its first model under the performance-oriented N Line product range in the country, as it looks to cater to the customers who yearn for sporty vehicles. The car comes with various exterior and interior changes to give it a sporty styling, inspired by motorsport. The i20 N Line is powered by a 1-litre petrol Turbo GDI engine mated with six-speed iMT (intelligent Manual transmission) and seven-speed DCT transmission options. “The N Line range will introduce customers to a car that truly epitomises driving passion, making sure sporty and fun driving experiences are accessible to all,” Hyundai Motor India MD and CEO SS Kim said.
N Line is made for everyday fun of young millennials, who view the world as their playground and have a different way of doing things, he added. Kim noted that the company would bring in additional models under the range over the next few years. Elaborating further Hyundai Motor India Director (Sales, marketing and Service) Tarun Garg said that i20 already has a very strong Motorsports legacy because the i20 Coupe is the World Rally Championship (WRC) car for Hyundai. “Even the base model of the model is equipped to have exceptional driving dynamics.
The i20 N Line builds on it further, amplifying the sporty, fun experience,” he noted. The models are accessible in terms of purchase and yet they stand out in terms of driving experience, Garg said. The car comes with 120 PS of peak power, enabling it to a dash of 0-100 km per hour in less than 10 seconds. The car’s exhaust has a roaring and grunting sound, the suspension is sporty enabling great handling while it also comes with four disc brakes, over 50 connectivity features, a sunroof, six airbags, among others. The company has commenced bookings of the i20 N Line from Monday, while the price is expected to be announced in the first week of September.
