Hyundai Australia has confirmed there will be a performance-focused N-Line version of the new i30 sedan when it launches in the second half of this year.
To coincide with this news, Hyundai released images of a camouflaged i30 N-Line sedan, but when compared to its ‘regular’ sibling revealed last month, it’s nearly impossible to pick the differences between the two.
That said, Hyundai is promising the i30 N-Line sedan will get N-specific design elements as part of its sportier look, so expect it to follow in the tyre tracks of its hatch sibling with an aggressive body kit.
Details on the rest of the local i30 sedan’s engine options will be announced closer to its showroom arrival, although the 109kW/179Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit is a likely starter.
Similarly, pricing and specification for the Toyota Corolla and Mazda3 sedan rival won’t be known until then, so stay tuned.
