Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has announced the launch of the 2023 Hyundai i20 N Line facelift. The new i20 N features a handful of cosmetic updates along with a 6-speed manual transmission option.
The 2023 Hyundai i20 N-Line facelift has been launched. The N-Line represents a performance-oriented version of the regular i20. Note that this is not the hardcore N Division of Hyundai which makes some of the most iconic hot hatchbacks in the world. The N-Line features a powerful engine, aesthetic enhancements to represent a sporty side of the i20 and some changes to the cabin like an all-black interior with red inserts. It has done decently well in terms of sales in India. The facelift model will try to keep up that success. Here are the details.
