Following the recent unveiling of the all-new i10, Hyundai Motor has announced it is to further enhance its N Line portfolio with the i10 N Line, which makes its debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). The new model combines the dynamic design, comprehensive connectivity and advanced safety of the i10 with the sportiness and attitude of N Line. The i10 N Line will be available in summer 2020.
The i10 N Line becomes the fourth Hyundai model to be equipped with its dynamic trim level. It follows on from the successful N Line launch in 2018 with the i30, followed by the i30 Fastback and, earlier this year, the Tucson. Hyundai’s latest model is complemented by an exclusive 1.0 T-GDi engine for increased driving performance.
“Taking inspiration from our high-performance sub-brand Hyundai N, the i10 N Line features an even more dynamic look,” says Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe. “In the past year, N Line has become an important component of our model strategy and we are excited to introduce the N Line character to our i10 customers.”
Like the i10, the i10 N Line’s dynamic and sleek design offers a contrast between its soft surfaces and sharp lines. Its exterior design enhancements include redesigned bumpers and grille, giving it a dynamic look reminiscent of the original i30 N. The exclusive 16-inch alloy wheels and the LED Daytime running lights illustrate the distinctive design of the i10 N Line and emphasise the car’s sporty attitude.
The i10 N Line’s other exclusive design features include the N Line emblem, i10 sign in red font, as well as a skid plate and diffuser. Customers can also choose from a total of 6 exterior colours which can be combined with a two tone roof. Inside, the car nods to the design of race car interiors. It achieves this thanks to the N-branded steering wheel and gear shift lever, as well as red air vent rings and metal pedals. Meanwhile, the sporty seats offer more support for performance-oriented driving precision. Like the standard i10, it offers a youthful style and practical solutions without compromising comfort.
The i10 N Line offers an exclusive 1.0-litre T-GDi 3-cylinder with 99bhp and 127lb ft of torque. This is in addition to the 1.2-litre MPi 4-cylinder with 83bhp and 87lb ft of torque. Both engines are available with a five-speed manual transmission.
