Here is some pro and cons about Hyundai i20 N, which you should have in mind before buying it.
What you'll like in Hyundai i20 N
- Aggressive styling with distinctive touches that set it apart from the garden-variety i20
- Punchy 1.0 turbo-petrol motor with 118 BHP on tap
- Firm yet compliant suspension coupled with a weighted steering + paddle shifters + fruity exhaust note that make the i20 N Line fun
- Tasteful N Line-exclusive steering wheel, gear selector, red accents etc. liven up the interior
- Feature-rich equipment list includes cruise control, LED projectors, voice-activated sunroof, wireless charging & more
- Spacious cabin with a 311 liter boot makes this a practical yet fun-to-drive car
- Price premium over the regular i20 is totally justified by the additions & improvements
- Safety kit = ESP, 6 airbags, rear disc brakes, Blue Link SOS, Hill Assist.
What you won't Like
- Although well-priced in relation to the i20 Asta variant, it is still an expensive hatchback
- Offering an iMT and not a proper MT on the i20 N Line is ridiculous!
- 1.0L DCT variant shows initial lag. Even otherwise, it’s not as explosive as VW’s 1.0 Turbo
- Some misses such as auto wipers, split folding rear seats.
- You absolutely need a tyre upgrade. The OEM rubber gives up easily
- This 3rd-gen i20’s styling can be polarizing, unlike the more neutral previous generation cars
- Dual-clutch ATs have had a troubled reliability record in India
- More of a warmed-up hatchback in terms of power & handling, rather than a “hot hatch” like an Abarth Punto
