Hyundai i30 1.0-litre spiced up with ‘N’ performance styling
Hyundai has brought some of the ‘N’ – the brand’s performance arm – styling to the i30 range, with the introduction of an entry-level 1.0-litre T-GDi derivative.
The i30 N Line 1.0 120hp 6-speed manual includes N Line exterior styling features including 17-inch alloy wheels equipped with Michelin tyres, N Line exclusive front and rear bumpers, twin exit exhaust muffler, gloss black wing mirror covers, body coloured door handles and N Line badging. Interior specification includes N Line sports cloth seats, black head lining and N branded steering wheel and gear lever.
Aside from N Line styling, the i30 N Line 1.0 120hp 6-speed manual benefits from keyless entry with start/stop button, 8-inch touchscreen display audio with DAB and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear view camera and cruise control with speed limiter function.
As with all i30’s, the i30 N Line 1.0 120hp offers a high level of safety equipment, with Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Driver Attention Alert and Hill Start Assist Control featuring as standard.
Ashley Andrew, managing director, Hyundai Motor UK said, “With the identity of the N Line range already established in the i30 range, the introduction of the 1.0 120hp engine is the natural next step. This engine accounts for over 65% of petrol engine sales in the i30 range and with a clear market demand for smaller capacity engines combined with a sports focused trim, we have high expectations for this new N Line model.”
All i30 N Line models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 year unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance package, 5 year annual health check, and 12 year anti corrosion warranty.
