Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) has launched the updated i20 N Line facelift in the country bringing substantial updates to the sporty hatchback. The new Hyundai i20 N Line facelift is priced from ₹9.99 lakh for the manual, ₹20,00 cheaper than the older version, while going up to ₹12.32 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec DCT automatic N8 trim. The i20 N Line now exclusively gets the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine, which was recently discontinued on the standard i20 earlier this year.
Power on the new Hyundai i20 N Line comes from the familiar 1.0-litre Kappa Turbo GDi petrol engine tuned for 118 bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a new 6-speed manual transmission and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) that’s now available in both N6 and N8 trims. The IMT unit has been given a miss this time in favour of a proper manual, which should appeal to enthusiasts, and also brings a lower asking price on the model.
