Hyundai i20 N Line specs reveal that mechanically it be identical to the regular turbo petrol model
The official specs and variants of the Hyundai i20 N Line, which will be launched in the market this year, have been revealed thanks to leaked type approval documents.
Hyundai will offer the sportier i20 in 2 trims – N6 and N8. The N6 variant is based on the regular i20’s Sportz trim, while the N8 is based on the Asta/Asta (O) variant.
The leaked Hyundai i20 N Line specs reveal that a sole 998cc turbo petrol engine putting out 120 PS and 172 Nm of torque will power the premium hatchback. It can be mated to either a 6-speed iMT or a 7-speed DCT.
While the iMT will be offered in both N6 and N8 variants of the i20 N Line, the DCT can only be had with the range-topping N8 trim.
In terms of dimensions the i20 N Line is identical to the regular model. However, visually, there will be differences, for the upcoming model will be positioned as a sportier version of the premium hatchback.
The car will have an N Line radiator grille (which was recently teased), sportier bumpers, 17-inch alloy wheels and twin-muffler exhaust pipes. Inside, there will be plentiful N Line parts and a different upholstery that will suit the car’s demeanour.
It is a given that, due to the cosmetic enhancements, the Hyundai i20 N Line will cost more than the regular dual tone turbo variants (i20 N Line is likely to be offered only in dual tone form) which cost Rs. 8.97 lakhs for Sportz iMT, Rs. 10.07 lakhs for Asta iMT and Rs. 11.40 lakhs for Asta (O) DCT (ex-showroom, Delhi).
