Hyundai i10 N Line - Smallest N Yet?

Hyundai I10 1

Hyundai has shown off the new i10 compact city car with an N Line kit at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.

This isn't a performance variant though as the designation is 'N Line' as opposed to 'N'. So while it looks the part, it certainly won't boast any breathtaking performance figures. 

Hyundai released just a handful of images, showing the exterior of the vehicle as well as the cabin. It's visually punchy, with a decent body kit with red detailing, as well as attractive 16-inch alloy wheels. If you look closely, there are also some really nice LED daytime running lights.

Inside, there's a sporty steering wheel with red stitching and the N logo is quite prominent. You'll also notice a 5-speed manual transmission. The Devil's in the detail though and Hyundai has paid close attention to making its little city slicker quite bold. There are metal pedal, red detailing around the air conditioning vents and sportier seats. 

The only letdown is the engine, which is a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine pushing out 62 kW and 118 Nm. Hyundai says it will fit its 1.0-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder motor if customers want it.

At this stage, SA availability is yet to be determined.
