2020 Hyundai i10 N Line starts from £16,195

Hyundai i10 N Line adds sporty style and goes on sale on 30 July

  • 99bhp petrol engine introduced
  • Interior and exterior upgrades
  • 52.3mpg claimed

The Hyundai i10 N Line goes on sale at the end of this month with a starting price of £16,195. It sits at the top of the i10 range and offers exclusive styling upgrades inspired by the Hyundai i30 N hot hatch. Rivals include the Volkswagen up! R-Line and the Kia Picanto GT-Line.

While it isn’t as quick as the Volkswagen up! GTI, the i10 N Line brings extra performance and a host of mechanical changes over the rest of the current i10 range. Under the bonnet is a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine introduced specifically for this trim level, which produces 99bhp and is good for 0-62mph in 10.5 seconds. That’s at least two seconds quicker than any other i10, and the 115mph top speed is higher too.

Often a sportily styled model like this will just have styling tweaks, but the i10 N Line gets chassis tuning, longer rear bump stops and new rear shock absorbers.

Hyundai has made sure it’ll stand out in a car park, too. The N Line has redesigned bumpers and a different grille, plus new 16-inch alloy wheels and redesigned LED Daytime running lights along with red accents on the grille, lower bumper splitter and around the alloy wheel centre caps.

Also unique to this version of the i10 is a protective skid plate and a rear bumper diffuser. Customers will be able to select from a choice of four colours that can be combined with a two-tone roof. The three ‘pearl’ paint colours cost £550 and a contrasting roof is an additional £500.

The sporty touches continue inside with metal pedals, red accents around the air vent rings and gear lever, and contrasting red stitching on the leather trimmed steering wheel. Sporty seats are fitted to offer more support in quick corners.

Standard equipment includes Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus Hyundai’s SmartSense safety package with lane-keeping assist, high-beam assist and autonomous emergency braking. A Tech Pack with sat nav, wireless phone charging and extra connectivity is a £1,000 option.
