It was only just last week when we saw Hyundai unveil the all-new i10. It gets an aggressive makeover, as well as a high-tech upgrade thanks to a plethora of new and updated features. The tiny hatchback also gets two new engine choices, as well as the option of having it with either four or five seats.
Now, Hyundai's A-segment fighter is now available in a more sporty guise. Say hello to the 2020 i10 N Line. It's the fourth model from Hyundai to receive the N Line treatment and gets some noticeable upgrades inside and out.
For starters, it gets an aggressive-looking front bumper that is accompanied by a new front grill design. There are also neat touches of red which further denote the hatchback's newfound sportiness. Stylish 16-inch alloy wheels, meanwhile, add some zest to the i10's overall looks. Finally, the LED daytime running lights have been refreshed to deliver a snazzier appearance. Other exterior upgrades Hyundai applied to the i10 include: N Line badging, front skid plate, and a rear diffuser.
Over to the cabin, Hyundai borrowed inspiration from race car interiors. Hints of red are scattered throughout the cabin which gives it a motorsport-like vibe. From the aircon vent rings, leather steering wheel, and the gear knob itself; Hyundai made sure to have the essential features come with the red hue. And, like the standard i10, a touchscreen infotainment and an automatic climate control system are available for the A-segment hatch.
Two engine options are available for the i10 N Line. First up is the 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that pushes out 100 PS and 172 Nm of torque. Next is the 1.2-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder that makes 84 PS with 118 Nm of torque. The turbocharged engine is only available with a five-speed manual while the 1.2 can come with the optional five-speed automated manual.
There is no word yet if Hyundai Philippines will offer the all-new i10 to the country. But should they bring it here, the i10 N Line would make for a great contender up against the Honda Brio RS, and the rest of the local A-segment lineup.
