Hyundai i20 N Line Facelift Unveiled

Hyundai Motor India launched the facelifted i20 in the country in September last year. Now, the automaker has announced the updated N Line version of this hatchback in the global market, hinting at its India launch soon. Hyundai has unveiled the facelifted version of the i20 N Line, further enhancing the sporty appeal of the popular hatchback. The i20 N Line has been a success for Hyundai, offering a blend of performance and practicality in a stylish package. The facelifted version builds on this success, introducing several updates and improvements to make it an even more attractive option for buyers. On the outside, the new i20 N Line features a new textured radiator grille with ā€˜Nā€™ badging, N line-specific sporty bumpers, red inserts on the front bumper and side skirts, freshly designed 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, and chrome twin-exhausts. Additionally, the manufacturer has introduced four new exterior hues. This includes Lumen Grey Pearl, Meta Blue Pearl, Vibrant Blue Pearl, and Lucid Lime Metallic.
