Sportier Hyundai i30 N-Line To Bridge Gap With Hot i30N

Hyundai is readying a new sport package for the Hyundai i30 in a bid to bridge the gap between the range-topping i30N version and the rest of the range.

Much like what BMW does with its M-Performance models, Hyundai will soon offer a sporty package to customers wishing a bit more spice from their new i30, possibly called the N-Line, though, this has yet to be confirmed.

As you can see, the test car features a camouflaged front fascia, hiding the more aggressive bumper and air intakes while the rear end is naked, revealing in full the design of the sportier bumper, as well as a discreet roof spoiler.

The test car is also fitted with bigger alloy wheels and what looks like regular brakes. The Korean car maker will most likely include a set of lowering springs into the new sport package, making the Hyundai i30 behave with a little more panache.

The new package, which will probably marketed as N-Line, will be offered with most powertrains in the range, including the 1.4-litre T-GDI with 140PS (138hp) and 242Nm (178lb-ft) of torque. There’s no information on whether Hyundai’s upcoming sport package will boost the output of certain engines in the range.
