Hyundai i20 teased in a video, hinted at sporty N-Line model

Hyundai would have been one of the busiest automakers if the 2020 Geneva Motor Show not been canceled. The new i20 was scheduled for the show alongside the Prophecy concept. But even though the public display wasn’t quite possible, the automaker has not wasted much time to bring the sportier version of the hatchback, the i20 N, albeit in a teaser video.

The video teaser that went up on Hyundai’s YouTube channel shows the all-new i20 in its new avatar. However, just before the video was about to end, the company teased a black silhouette of the i20 that looked sportier and had several unique styling cues. This was followed by “to be continued” in writing, which hints that the automaker might bring a sportier N Line model or an altogether i20 N.

The teased silhouette is quite evidently sporty. It looks bulkier and sharper. The side panels and fender appear to be bigger, and so does the wheel and wheel arches. There is even a roof spoiler at the rear, which is seemingly bigger than the standard new standard i20.

If you look closely, you will see a red stripe passing through the lower skirting on the side. Also, the alloy wheel design is completely different and probably blacked out. The rear bumper looks meatier too.

It would make quite a lot of sense for the automaker and also the prospective buyers to have the N Line model before the standard i20. After all, Hyundai has been testing the sportier version rigorously of late. Once it is out, it would be competing against the likes of the Toyota GR Yaris, Volkswagen Polo GTI, etc.

The range-topping variant of the present Hyundai i20 is powered by a 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder, turbocharged engine that produces a power of 118 hp. However, the new N Line model could get a more powerful engine. Probably, an extra cylinder could take the total power to over 200 hp.

The Hyundai i20 N could be brought by the end of the year, followed by the Tucson N. This could be a good step for the automaker as it looks to build a strong portfolio of performance-oriented passenger cars.
