Hyundai launched the new generation of the i20 in India last year. It was a big departure in terms of design when compared to the previous Elite i20. Some people consider it to be the best looking premium hatchback. Also, the Korean manufacturer recently launched the N Line variant of the i20 which is sportier than the regular i20. Here, is a modified i20 that looks a lot more aggressive than the regular i20.
The modifications are done by Mind Auto Mods and the pictures are shared on their Instagram page. The modifications include an ABS quality splitter and side skirts. You can get the splitter and the side skirts in different finishes. There is also a racing gauge installed in the i20. The Instagram post says that the modification took just 5 minutes.
The front splitter and the side skirts are finished in gloss black. Both of them are made up of ABS plastic. The kit includes three pieces for the front and 2 pieces for the side. You can also get them in a carbon fibre finish. This kit does make the i20 look a lot sportier and aggressive.

Then there is the racing gauge. It is called A600 OBD Digital Racing Gauge. The post says that no wires need to be cut and it is a plug and play device. The A600 is suitable for all cars, according to the post. In the pictures, we can see that it is mounted to the right A-pillar so it is directly in the driver’s line of sight. The gauge is also configurable so you can change the theme according to your liking.
Hyundai just launched the N Line variants of the i20. They come with the same 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that also gets a direct injection. The engine produces 120 PS of max power and 172 Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed iMT gearbox or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
There are some mechanical changes to the hatchback as well. So, the steering wheel is different and provides more feel and feedback. Hyundai also said that they have stiffened up the chassis. It also gets a different exhaust system that sounds raspier but not significantly louder. It also gets four disc brakes to increase the stopping power.
The N Line variants also have a stiff suspension as compared to regular i20. This improves the handling quite a bit but you may feel potholes more when you go over them. Having said that, this is a small price to pay considering how much the new suspension improves the handling of the hatchback.
The N Line is available in two variants, namely N6 and N8. The N6 iMT is priced at Rs. 9.84 lakhs ex-showroom. Then there is N8 iMT which is priced at Rs. 10.87 lakhs ex-showroom. You can also get the N8 with a DCT gearbox which costs Rs. 11.75 lakhs ex-showroom. You can also pay extra to get a dual-tone paint job with every variant.
