Hyundai has revealed details of its warmed up i30 Sedan N Line, set to launch in Australia later this year.

The N Line range will headline the i30 Sedan range — nee the Elantra — with the same 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine found in its Cerato GT rival.

It’s paired with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission and has a raft of mechanical upgrades for more sportiness: 18-inch alloy wheels, a stiffer suspension including a multi-link independent rear set up and larger front brake rotors.

Auto variants score paddle shifters and a selection of drive modes, plus interior upgrades including a leather-wrapped perforated N steering wheel with metallic spokes, N sport seats with leather bolsters, gearshift with metal accents and leather inserts, and alloy pedals.

It gets a number of sporty exterior touches also.

The grille is designed to be more aggressive looking and adds an N Line badge and intricate geometric pattern, while the front end also has arrow-shaped air curtains for better aerodynamic performance and engine cooling.

There are racy side skirts and glossy black moulding on the wheel wells, side-view mirrors and side skirts.

At the back, is a sculpted rear end with integrated spoiler to further enhance aerodynamics, plus chrome twin exhausts and N Line rear diffuser.

Safety gear includes, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, high beam assist, driver attention warning, blind-spot collision avoidance assist and rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, while comforts include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Pricing will be revealed closer to launch.

Hyundai hopes to follow the i30 Sedan N Line later this year with a Sonata N Line, packing a 2.5-litre turbo petrol engine.
