Hyundai i20 N Line is the first of the several other N Line models that the company plans to introduce in India in the future with an aim to create a separate niche segment for the customers looking for a sportier drive experience.
The Hyundai i20 N Line will be offered in three variants – N6 iMT, N8 iMT, and N8 DCT.

The new Hyundai i20 N Line will be offered in three variants- N6 iMT, N8 iMT and N8 DCT and essentially, it’s a sportier version of the Hyundai i20 premium hatchback.
It marks the entry-point of Hyundai’s N Line division in India and is being offered only on the range-topping 1.0-litre GDI Turbo iMT and DCT iteration. It looks very sporty and quite sexy indeed and will be retailed exclusively through Hyundai’s signature dealerships. The Hyundai i20 N Line will come in 6 body colour options, including 2 dual-tone paint schemes
Exterior updates on the N Line are limited to cosmetic modifications giving it a racy and sporty demeanour, while it also gets a recalibrated steering geometry to offer better feedback and a 30 per cent stiffer suspension setup. The front end gets a new cascading grille with matte black elements and the N Line logo. Then the aesthetics are underlined by a new, more muscular front bumper with sharp lines and edges going with its sporty look.
And there are sportier alloy wheels and sleek side skirts as well complementing the diffuser on the front bumper. Dimension-wise, the i20 N Line will remain identical to the regular i20. The overall length remains at 3,995 mm, a width of 1,775 mm, and a height of 1,505 mm. The wheelbase of the car will stand unchanged at 2,580 mm.
