N Line gives sporty flavour to Hyundai i20

Hyundai i20 N Line

HYUNDAI'S new i20 N Line has been launched with a price tag of £22,395.

The 'proper' full-fat i20 hot hatch is the i20 N, but the N Line sports many of that car's cosmetic cues.

This includes a front bumper with grey detailing and an N Line badge, while 17-inch alloy wheels and new side skirts give the little hatchback a chunkier appearance.

Privacy glass is also included, as is a redesigned bumper, triangular rear fog lamp and dual exhaust muffler.

Inside, the i20 N Line features red accents throughout the cabin, as well as red stitching on the seats. A leather N branded steering wheel and gear lever complete the interior changes.

The i20 N Line is available with a single powertrain - a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid system.

It produces 118bhp and is available with either a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual with an electronically controlled clutch capable of disengaging the transmission from the engine when coasting to aid efficiency.

There's a lot of standard equipment included too.

All cars benefit from LED headlights and daytime running lights alongside a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch central infotainment system.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also on board.

Safety kit includes lane keep assist with lane departure warning, driver attention alert and autonomous emergency braking.

Being a Hyundai, it comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty and five annual health checks.
