New Hyundai i30 N Line 2018 UK price and specs – Sportier styling without the drawbacks
Hyundai is launching a new line for its i30 hatchback later this year called the N-Line.
N-Line is a sportier upgrade to the standard vehicle without the extra punch under the bonnet.
It is essentially a more muscular and dynamic looking car without the bite of a higher powered engine.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO Hyundai Motor UK explained the car saying: “The i30N has had a tremendous reception from both automotive media and our customers since its launch early this year but we understand many customers ‘want the show but don’t need the go’ – N Line will give customers that balance of looks and performance”
The South Korean car manufacturer will launch the car to go on sale in the UK on the 3rd of September.
It combines the styling of the carmaker’s hot hatchback i30N, sharing the same front and rear bumper but with N Line specific silver lower accents and N Line badging on the front wings.
The car’s exterior is completed by twin exhaust, LED rear lamps and 18-inch Fastback design alloy wheels, with Michelin Pilot PS4 tyres.
To complement the car’s performance styling the vehicle has received mechanical changes to the suspension, brakes and engine response.
Inside the car, there are the same sports seats and leather steering wheel from the i30 N-Line.
As with all i30’s, the i30 N Line offers a high level of standard safety equipment, with Lane Departure Warning System, Lane Keep Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Hill Start Assist Control featuring on all models.
Standard technology and connectivity equipment also feature with all N Line’s benefitting from Centre Console Display with 8-inch Touchscreen Display Audio with Smart Device Integration & DAB (supporting Apple Carplay and Android Auto.)
Prices for the new range start from £21,255 for the i30 N Line 1.4 T-GDi 140PS 6 speed manual and the range is also available with a seven-speed DCT transmission.
Upgrading up the range will add different comfort and safety features such as heated electric leather and suede sports seats, LED headlight and automatic rain sensing windscreen wipers amongst other add-ons.
