Hyundai’s strategy for the sporting N division seems not only to embark on power up their cars but also focuses on boosting excellent look. With the set of recently-surfaced spy shots, we know they can attest to the statement above.
As can be seen from the prototype, it is dressed with a sportier wheel set resembling the i30 N
As can be seen from the prototype, the Hyundai i30 N-Line is dressed with a sportier wheel set resembling the i30 N. The low-profile tires are estimated to be around 19-inches.
The spied photos show a masked front though revealing the rear that keeps existing bumper of the i30 N. A change that we can easily spot from the rear is the N-Line’s two split exhausts are located on two sides but the brand has combined them and make it a twin exhaust on the right. The N-Line also keeps small aerodynamic wings above the rear wheels but there is no longer i30 N’s large spoilers, so are the triangle-shaped brake lights.

In terms of mechanics, there’re no changes expected and all of the i30’s stock motors should stay unchanged. In detail, coming equipped with the 1.4 T-GDI turbo-charged 4-cylinder petrol engine, the i30 is able to put out 242 Nm of torque and 140 PS. Another option is the 1.0-GDI turbo-charged 3-potter which produces 170 Nm and 120 PS.

On the other hand, if looking for oil burners, you can also pick the 1.6-liter turbo-diesel with 3 different tune states which are 300 Nm/136 PS, 280 Nm/110 PS, and 280 Nm/95 PS. Also, you are offered a 1.4-liter MPI KAPPA unit (134 Nm,/100 PS) for the NA route preference. There are two options for the transmission (up to the variant) for you, one is the 6-speed manual, the other 7-speed dual-clutch.
In fact, before Hyundai, we have seen upgraded styling packs on the Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI R-Line which uses the same strategy to gain a racier-looking. Latest updates on upcoming Hyundai cars can be found in our Complete guide to the Hyundai Philippines' local lineup.
