South Korean car maker Hyundai shared the first images from the sporty version of the i30, N Line. The N Line version of the renewed i30 will come out with a sharper line design.
Hyundai is continuing to renew the models it sells in Europe. After the new generation i10 and i20, the renewal sequence is now on the i30. The South Korean automaker will showcase the new i30 with the N Line version for the first time at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show next month.
Hyundai shared the first footage from the 2021 i30 N Line, and the car was unmistakable, with a sporty look as well as a redesigned front bumper with larger air intakes. Instead of the bumper, LED daytime running lights are integrated into the headlights that have a much sharper appearance. Hyundai also replaced the grille with a different mesh pattern to emphasize the more sporty look of the i30.
Images were not shared from the rear of the i30 N Line, but the car is known to have redesigned stops and a different bumper. Another of the changes in the design will be alloy wheels ranging from 16 to 18 inches. The interior of the car will feature a 10.25-inch touch screen for the infotainment system, as well as a fully digital instrument panel.
The i30 N Line will continue to be renewed in the future and will receive a dual clutch automatic transmission. Following the footsteps of the 2021 VW Golf R, Hyundai was also considering offering versions of the i30 with all-wheel drive. However, the South Korean brand has not heard about it yet.
