Globally, the hot hatchback has been offered with a new 1.6L, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that offers a top power of 204bhp. Its torque figure stands at 275Nm. The motor has been boosted with an uprated turbocharger and intercooler, Hyundai’s new CVVD (Continuously Variable Valve Duration) technology, and a 350 bar fuel injection system. Compared to the conventional setup, the CVVD tech is claimed to improve the engine’s performance and fuel efficiency.
The Hyundai i20 N Line comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox only. It has rev-matching technology that ensures smooth downshifts. The hot-hatch has also been equipped with ‘N Corner Carving Differential’, which is an optional mechanical limited-slip differential. The system enables the front wheel to use most of the power offered via the engine. The N Line model sits on retuned and improved chassis of the regular i20. In fact, the carmaker has made several geometry changes and revised its components including the calibrated steering and larger front brakes.
Similar to the i30 N, the new Hyundai i20 N Line comes with the brand’s ‘N Grin Control System’ offering five modes to adjust engine, transmission, exhaust sounds, steering and stability control. The hot-hatch has some motorsport inspired features such as Pirelli P Zero tyres, a brake pad wear indicator and “left-foot braking calibration”.
