Hyundai i20 N Line launched, prices start from Rs 9.84 lakh
The Hyundai i20 N Line has been launched today and it is being offered in three different variants; the N6 variant priced at Rs 9.84 lakh (ex-showroom), the N8 iMT priced at Rs 10.87 lakh (ex-showroom), and the N8 DCT priced at Rs 11.75 lakh (ex-showroom). Hyundai will offer the N6 with the 6-speed iMT only, while the N8 variant gets the added option of the 7-speed DCT.
The Hyundai i20 N Line receives subtle design tweaks to differentiate it from the regular i20, such as the N Line badging, dual-tone finished bumpers, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, side sill and skid plate with Athletic Red inserts, front disc calipers finished in red, twin-tip muffler, side wing spoiler, chrome garnish on fog lamps, tail lamp connecting garnish finished in dark chrome, and a tailgate spoiler. The interiors receive black treatment with Athletic Red inserts and red ambient lighting, along with leather seats flaunting a chequered flag design and the N logo. There are four monotone paint schemes to choose from, starting from the new Thunder Blue, along with Fiery Red, Titan Grey, and Polar White. The dual-tone paint options include the roof finished in Phantom Black and will be available with the Thunder Blue and Fiery Red.
The i20 N Line is loaded to the gills with many features available as standard across both variants such as cruise control, smartphone connectivity, sunroof, auto-fold mirrors, voice recognition, digital instrument cluster, lane change indicator, rear AC vents, and glove box cooling among others. The N8 variant ups the ante further with a 7-speaker Bose sound system, paddle shifters on the DCT variant, along with voice-enabled sunroof, automatic air-conditioning, wireless smartphone charging with cooling pad, battery saver, and Hyundai BlueLink among many others.
Hyundai will also offer customers with three warranty plans to choose from; a 5 years/40,000 kilometres plan, a 4 years/50,000 kilometres plan, and a 3 years/100,000 kilometres plan, along with 3 years free roadside assistance and BlueLink subscription.
Hyundai offers the i20 N Line with a 1-litre turbo GDi petrol that churns out 118bhp and 172Nm of torque. It claims to finish a 0-100kmph run in just 9.9 seconds, while also claiming to deliver fuel efficiency figures of 20kmpl and 20.25kmpl for the iMT and DCT respectively, no manuals here. We can confirm the validity of these claims only after a road test which should happen soon enough.
With a starting price tag of Rs 9.84 lakh, the Hyundai i20 N Line commands a premium of Rs 1.03 lakh over the regular i20 turbo petrol which costs Rs 8.81 lakh (ex-showroom). The Hyundai i20 N Line goes up against the likes of the Volkswagen Polo GT TSI and the Tata Altroz iTurbo.
