Since the rather positive first impressions of the Hyundai i20 N Line, the pricing was a cliffhanger everyone was waiting for. Well, they are out now and unsurprisingly, Hyundai has managed to get it just right. There are two trim options on the i20 N Line namely N6 and N8.
The N6 will be available on the iMT version only and will miss out on a few features but it costs Rs 1.03 lakh less. What you miss out on the N6 is LED projector headlamps with cornering lamps, is side and curtain airbags, puddle lamps with welcome function, red ambient lighting, a smaller 8-inch touchscreen, electrochromic rear view mirror, BlueLink buttons, Smart key, height-adjustable seat belts, voice-enabled sunroof, push-button start/stop, wireless charging, automatic climate control, rear wiper and washer, rear adjustable headrests and rear armrests. The N8 though starts at Rs 10.87 lakh for the iMT trim and gets everything that is mentioned above. However, if you want the quick-shifting 7-speed DCT transmission, it costs Rs 11.75 lakh and this one is available only in the top-spec N8 spec.
Powering the N Line is a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine making 120bhp, and it is the same engine on the standard car. However, there have been changes to the steering and suspension that will set the driving dynamics apart from the standard i20.
The spec list too is different with the N Line getting a lot more kit like rear disc brakes, red ambient lighting and 3-spoke steering wheel with N logo.
The i20 N Line competes directly with the VW Polo GT TSI and the Tata Altroz i-Turbo. If you want to know how it drives, stay tuned to our YouTube channel and the website for a full review on the 9th of September at 9am.
