The Hyundai i30 is the first model in the company’s line-up to get the N Line trim. The N Line variant has a more aggressive styling, but not as extreme as the top-of-the-line N variant. The car offers a tweaked suspension set-up, larger front brakes and a retuned engine response as well.
Visually, the Hyundai i30 N Line features sporty front and rear bumpers with silver paint highlights on the lower lip. It comes with 18-inch machined alloys wrapped in PS4 Michelin Performance tyres and twin exhaust pipes, and ‘N Line’ badge can be found on the front fenders. As for the interior, it features N-branded suede sports seats, leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, N gear-shift knob and metal pedals for a more engaging driving experience.
Engine options for the Hyundai i30 N Line include 1.4-litre T-GDI petrol and 1.6-litre CRDi diesel. The 1.4-litre T-GDI four-cylinder petrol engine is capable of producing 140 PS of maximum power and a peak torque of 243 Nm. The 1.6-litre CRDi four-cylinder diesel engine is tuned to produce 136 PS of maximum power and 300 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and a seven-speed DCT on both the engine options.
The Hyundai i30 N Line is already on sale in the UK, priced from £21,255 (INR 20.42 lakh). The standard variant has shown up on Indian roads many times, but a launch isn’t planned in our market.
