Hyundai i30 N Line Gets A More Affordable 1.0L Turbo Entry-Level Model

Hyundai has made the i30 N Line range more affordable with the introduction of a new base model in the United Kingdom.

It’s priced from £19,995 ($25,642/€22,729) and uses a 1.0-liter turbo-three engine, with a six-speed manual gearbox. The 120 PS (118 hp / 88 kW) and 171 Nm (126 lb-ft) of torque produced, provide it with a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 11.1 seconds and a 190 km/h (118 mph) top speed.

Just like the i30 N Line powered by the 140 PS (138 hp / 103 kW) 1.4-liter engine, the new addition to the lineup has specific exterior styling. Included here are the exclusive bumpers, N Line badging, twin exhaust pipes, body-colored door handles, gloss black side mirror casings and smaller 17-inch wheels with Michelin tires.

Inside, this version of the compact hatchback has an N branded steering wheel and gearshift lever, N Line sports cloth seats and black headlining. The infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen display, DAB radio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as the reversing camera, cruise control with speed limiter and keyless entry&go are standard.

Like all i30s, the new N Line 1.0-GDi variant features Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Driver Attention Alert and Hill Start Assist Control.

With the addition of this trim level, the number of i30 N Line variants has gone up to five – this including the 1.4-liter T-GDi with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT, and the N Line + with the same transmission options.
