New Hyundai i30 N Line models announced as part of revamped 2019 Hyundai i30 range
The ever-popular Hyundai i30 SR models are dead. Happily, they’ve been replaced by the i30 N Line and i30 N Line Premium models, which, as you may have guessed, have been inspired by the revered i30 N hot hatch.
The i30 N Line models are powered by a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine that produces 150kW which is mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The N Line Premium is only available with the auto.
The i30 N Line is distinguished by an N Line body kit and badging, 18 inch alloys wrapped in Michelin tyres, multi-link suspension to help ensure it’s a tidy handler, black bezel headlights, alloy pedals, a wireless charging pad and red seatbelts, trim and stitching. There’s also satellite navigation, adaptive cruise, driver attention warning and lane keep assist. Naturally there are parking sensors all round and a reversing camera.
A panoramic sunroof is option. The i30 N Line is priced from $26,490. The auto adds $5,000.
If you opt for the i30 N Line Premium you also get LED headlights and front indicators, panoramic glass sunroof, Solar control glass, Infinity 7-speaker premium audio, heated and ventilated front seats and Hyundai Auto Link Premium (SIM) amongst a number of other features.
The i30 N Line Premium is priced from $34,990.
“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,” Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Executive Officer, JW Lee said.
“With the N Line, owners can have an i30 N-derived performance package combined with the everyday practicability of our core Hyundai models,” he said.
