2021 Hyundai i20 N Line Review : 8 Pros & 8 Cons

What the i20 N-Line offers - visual enhancements, sportier exhaust, better suspension, etc. - is on the wish list of any enthusiast anyway.

Hyundai i20 N Line Pros

  • Aggressive styling with distinctive touches that set it apart from the garden-variety i20
  • Punchy 1.0 turbo-petrol motor with 118 BHP on tap
  • Firm yet compliant suspension coupled with a weighted steering + paddle shifters + fruity exhaust note make the i20 N Line fun
  • Tasteful N Line-exclusive steering wheel, gear selector, red accents etc liven up the interior
  • Feature-rich equipment list includes cruise control, LED projectors, voice-activated sunroof, wireless charging & more
  • Spacious cabin with a 311 liter boot make this a practical yet fun-to-drive car
  • Price premium over the regular i20 is totally justified by the additions & improvements
  • Safety kit = ESP, 6 airbags, rear disc brakes, Blue Link SOS, Hill Assist…

Hyundai i20 N Line Cons

  • Although well-priced in relation to the i20 Asta variant, it is still an expensive hatchback
  • Offering an iMT and not a proper MT on the i20 N Line is ridiculous!
  • 1.0L DCT variant shows initial lag. Even otherwise, it’s not as explosive as VW’s 1.0 Turbo
  • Some misses such as auto wipers, split folding rear seats…
  • You absolutely need a tyre upgrade. The OEM rubber gives up easily
  • This 3rd-gen i20’s styling can be polarizing, unlike the more neutral previous generations
  • Dual-clutch ATs in India have had a troubled reliability record
  • More of a warmed-up hatchback in terms of power & handling, rather than a “hot hatch” like an Abarth Punto
