New Hyundai i30 N Line May Look Like A Hot Hatch, But It Ain’t One

Hyundai has expanded its portfolio of N-badged cars with the introduction of the new i30 N Line, which will be available across Europe later this summer.

Unlike the i30 N or Veloster N, however, Hyundai’s new i30 N Line isn’t performance-oriented, even if it has the correct exterior and interior upgrades. Thus, customers choosing this model will have to make do with a 140PS (138hp / 103kW) 1.4-liter petrol engine.

Enhancing the driving dynamics of the car are the upgraded suspension and brakes, which are said to have been “tuned to add extra spice to the regular i30 five-door“.

In essence, the i30 N Line is to Hyundai what an S Line model is to Audi. Only in this case, it comes with a number of features found on the compact hot hatch, including the front and rear bumpers with a silver paint line, 18-inch alloy wheels available on the five-door i30 for the first time, new twin muffler at the rear, and special badge on the front fenders.

The N-branded suede sports seats are available inside, with good lateral support, and clients will also enjoy the perforated leather sport steering wheel, N gearshift knob and what Hyundai calls a “spacious and practical interior”, with “comfortable space for all occupants”.

“Our i30 N has been hugely successful since launch, showcasing our capabilities in high-performance engineering and emotionalizing our brand with its fun-to-drive factor. Now we are extending that feeling to a wider audience with the new i30 N Line“, commented the Hyundai Europe’s VP for Marketing and Product, Andreas-Christoph Hofmann. “We believe the comprehensive package of design and engineering enhancements will continue to attract more new customers to the Hyundai brand in Europe.”

Pricing and exact availability of the new Hyundai i30 N Line should be announced in the coming weeks.

    I hate seeing these letter line models on the road thinking it’s the actual performance variant until you get close and realized that it’s just the line package to make it look like one. Really deceptive
