The Hyundai i30 N Line has made its stage debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The visually sportier version of the regular i30 hatch was introduced in July.
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.
