Hyundai i30 Hatch 2021 review: N Line snapshot

The N Line is the entry point into i30 sport grades.

The N Line is the entry point into i30 sport grades and has either a manual for $29,420 or an auto for $2K more.

The N Line comes standard with an eight-inch screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, leather upholstery, rear view camera, leather steering wheel, auto headlights, LED DRLs, 18-inch alloy wheels and directional rear air vents.

There are also LED headlights and taillights, wireless charging, proximity key and push-button start, dual-zone climate control and rain sensing wipers. The N Line also has a tough-looking body kit.

The reason for getting the N Line is for its turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, which produces 150kW and 265Nm. Not only does the N Line offer more grunt but it’s paired up with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission rather than a traditional six-speed auto matched to the lower powered engines. The N Line also comes with the option of a six-speed manual gearbox, and it’s also offered on the entry grade i30, too.

The i30 was given the maximum five-star ANCAP rating when it was tested in 2017.

Standard on all grades is AEB with pedestrian and cyclist detection.

Lane keeping assistance is also standard across the i30 range and so is adaptive cruise control.
