Hyundai has added a sportier N Line variant to the i20 supermini line-up, with prices starting at £22,395.
Inspired by the upcoming i20 hot-hatch, the N Line version sets itself apart from regular i20s with a more aggressive look and larger alloy wheels.
The 1.0-litre turbocharged engine, complete with a mild-hybrid system, develops 120PS in N Line models - a power bump of 20PS.
Two transmissions are available: a six speed manual (iMT) that features an electronically controlled clutch to decouple the transmission from the engine under certain driving conditions to enhance efficiency, or a seven speed dual clutch automatic (£23,645).
The N Line trim features LED headlamps and rear combination lamps, LED daytime running lights, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch touchscreen with satnav, DAB, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluelink Telematics.
It is also equipped with a number of Hyundai SmartSense systems as standard with six airbags, the automatic emergency call system eCall, Lane Keep Assist (LKA) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Forward Collision Assist (FCA) warning with pedestrian and cyclist detection as well as automatic headlamps with High Beam Assist (HBA) are standard. Standard speed sensitive automatic door locking, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) also provide additional peace of mind.
Exterior design changes for the i20 N Line include a dedicated front bumper and grille equipped with the N Line badge, bespoke 17-inch alloy wheels, side skirts and privacy glass. A redesigned rear bumper houses the signature N triangular rear fog lamp and dual exhaust muffler.
Interior changes include red accents to the door trims, heating and ventilation controls, as well as red stitching to the N branded seats. A leather N branded steering wheel and gear lever feature as standard, as does a black headlining.
