Hyundai i10 N Line gets cosmetic updates and a more powerful 99hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine.
Think the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios could do with a power upgrade? The i10 N Line could be the model you’re looking for. Unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show, the i10 N Line is the sporty version of the third-gen Europe-spec i10. As you may know, the European i10 is closely related to the new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios on sale in India.
The i10 will become the fourth N Line model, following the i30 hatchback, i30 Fastback and Tucson, when it arrives in 2020. It will be offered with a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 99hp and 172Nm of torque, making it the most powerful i10 variant on sale. Also on offer on the Europe-spec i10 are 66hp, 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol and 83hp, 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engines.
Redesigned bumpers and front grille, exclusive 16-inch alloy wheels, and angular LED daytime running lights set the i10 N Line apart from the rest of the range. It also features a rear skid plate and diffuser, along with bespoke colour options. Inside, it receives an N-branded steering wheel and gear-shift lever, metal pedals and upgraded seats.
The Hyundai i10 N Line will go on sale in Europe next summer. Hyundai has been toying with the idea of bringing its sporty N Line to India as well so the i10 N Line could be on the cards for our market, further down the road.
