Here is a video showing the target customer base for the Hyundai i20 N-Line. Hyundai has decided to introduce the N Line of products in India. The N Line products are generally a bit more performance-oriented versions of some of the regular and popular Hyundai vehicles. It is worth mentioning here that the N Line of products must not be mixed up with the full-blown almost track-ready N versions like the Veloster N. Those are some of the world’s best hot hatches. The N Line versions, on the other hand, have minor tweaks to the suspension, steering setup, exhaust note, among other things.
Target Customer Base for the i20 N Line
In the video, Hyundai clearly intends for people looking for adventure, to be the natural customers of the Hyundai i20 N Line. People who are driving enthusiasts and want a great handling hot-hatch will have a great liking and appreciation for the car. A person who needs a car for day-to-day commute and considers a car as a mere mobility solution, might not see much point in spending extra for a few mechanical tweaks to his regular i20. However, only a driving enthusiast will be able to sense the difference that these few tweaks could make to the overall driving experience. Keeping this approach in mind, Hyundai will also include the N Line version of some of its other products in India soon. This will offer a choice for the driving enthusiasts with some of the popular Hyundai cars in our market. The video will surely tell you if the i20 N-Line is worth buying or not.
Features and Specs
The Hyundai i20 is arguably the most extensively feature-packed product in the premium hatchback segment. The 10.25-inch Touchscreen Infotainment System comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Hyundai’s own Connected Car Tech with Bluelink App and wireless charging. There is an air purifier incorporated in the centre console between the two seats. Another segment first is the Bose 7-Speaker Audio System with a subwoofer. For the love of Sunroofs in India, Hyundai has made sure that this premium hatchback comes with an electric sunroof as well. Other features include Ambient lighting, Automatic climate control, Cruise Control, Rear AC Vents, Leatherette Upholstery, Cooled Glovebox and Keyless Entry and Go.
The Hyundai i20 N Line comes with a 1.0-litre direct injection turbo petrol engine making 120 PS and 172 Nm of peak power and torque respectively. There are options of either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed quick-shifting DCT gearbox. The prices of the i20 N Line have not been announced yet. We expect this variant to command a premium of about Rs 1 lakh over the regular top-trim.
