Hyundai has revealed a warm N Line variant of its upcoming i10 city car, which is set to become the most advanced car in its class when it arrives early next year.
The i10 will become the fourth N Line model, following the i30 hatchback, i30 Fastback and Tucson when it arrives in 2020. It will be offered with a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 99bhp and 127lb ft of torque, making it the most powerful i10 variant on sale.
Redesigned bumpers and front grille, exclusive 16in alloy wheels and angular LED daytime running lights set the i10 N Line apart from the rest of the range. It also features a rear skid plate and diffuser, along with bespoke colour options. Inside, it recieves an N-branded steering wheel and gear shift lever, metal pedals and upgraded seats.
The third-generation compact city car, which will arrive in the UK early next year and makes its public debut at this week’s Frankfurt motor show, has been given a dynamic exterior overhaul to appeal to younger customers. Extended rear wheel arches have added 20mm to the width and the roofline has been lowered by 20mm over the outgoing model.
