Hyundai is India’s second largest car manufacturer in the country and has variety of models in their portfolio. Hyundai launched the all-new i20 premium hatchback in the Indian market last year and we have also shared our opinions regarding the same our website and YouTube channel as well. Hyundai has also launched a much more powerful N-Line version of the premium hatchback internationally and the same is expected to makes its way to India as well. Lately, a fully camouflaged i20 has been spotted testing on our roads and we have featured the same on our website as well. Here we have a video that shows how the N-Line version of the i20 looks.

The video shows the Hyundai i20 N-Line hatchback. Hyundai i20 is one of the popular premium hatchbacks in the country and it competes with cars like Maruti Baleno, Volkswagen Polo, Tata Altroz and Honda Jazz in the segment. The i20 N-Line version when launched will be placed above the regular i20 as it will have some cosmetic changes and performance upgrades.

The video shows what all is different in this hatchback from the regular version. The front gets a much more wider and sportier looking gloss black grille. The Headlight remain the same with LED DRLs and fog lamps in the lower part of the bumper. The bumper is different and it looks a lot more sharper than the regular version. There are red colour accents and N Line badge on the front grille that shouts that it is not a regular i20.
