The N Line models start from $26,490, and mirror the standard features of the outgoing SR variants. The changes are stylistic, with the N Line differing from regular i30 models thanks to more aggressive front and rear bumper treatments, 18-inch alloy wheels shod in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rubber, and N Line badging.
Inside the cabin there are sportier seats and a steering wheel and gear knob exclusive to the N Line, along with red highlights and contrasting black headlining.
N Line models are fitted with Hyundai’s 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo engine, mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Sitting above the regular N Line is the N Line Premium, which replaces the SR Premium as the sports flagship of the sub-i30N range. The N Line Premium has the same engine as the regular N Line, but is only available with a dual-clutch gearbox.
Both the N Line and N Line Premium benefit from a locally tuned suspension, with engineers in Australia working their magic on the car’s ride and handling to suit our unique road conditions.
“The new 2019 i30 N Line models build on the sporty appeal of the previous i30 SR to make our award-winning small car an even more compelling proposition,” said Hyundai Motor Company Australia chief executive officer, JW Lee.
“With the N Line, owners can have an i30 N-derived performance package combined with the everyday practicability of our core Hyundai models.”
