Hyundai i10 N Line pricing and specs revealed
Hyundai is introducing a performance-inspired version of the i10, bringing increased power, chassis enhancements and a number of styling additions.
Joining the range for the recently launched third-generation city car at the end of July and priced from £16,195, it follows in the footsteps of other N Line models and takes its inspiration from the i30 N hot hatchback.
It’s powered by a 1.0-litre turbo GDi petrol engine with 100hp and 172Nm torque, bringing increased power for the line-up but without too much of a hit on emissions. The WLTP-rated CO2 figure stands at 123g/km with 52.3mpg combined fuel consumption while 0-62 time is 10.5 seconds with a 115mph top speed.
Performance is also underscored by chassis changes including an increased spring rate, longer rear bump stops and new rear shock absorbers with enhanced compression control.
Design updates see the N Line get its own front grille with integrated LED daytime running lamps, unique 16-inch alloys, dual chrome exhaust tips, rear LED combination lamps and red stripe finishing to the front and rear bumpers, plus N Line badging on the front wings.
Interior design features bring N branding on the steering wheel and gear stick, N Line cloth seats with red stitching, rear privacy glass, black roof liner and red air vent details.
Equipment is carried over from the rest of the range and includes an 8-inch display audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and Bluetooth with steering wheel controls and voice recognition. Drivers can also opt for Tech Pack (£1,000) that brings both navigation and Hyundai’s Bluelink telematics system, provided via a free-of-charge five-year subscription and wireless charging for compatible devices.
The i10 N Line also features the SmartSense safety package seen across the i10 range, which includes Lane Departure Warning System with Lane Keep Assist, Driver Attention Warning, High Beam Assist and Forward Collision Warning System with integrated Autonomous Emergency Braking. Customers adding in the Tech Pack also get Intelligent Speed Limit Warning.
