Hyundai i30 SR replaced by N Line variants

The 2019-model-year i30 range has been tweaked with the inclusion of N Line variants which replace the award-winning i30 SR.

The Hyundai i30 SR is being dropped and replaced by the i30 N Line which is, obviously, inspired by the i30 N. Prices are up by around $1000 compared to the equivalent SR variant.

In a short statement, Hyundai said: “2019 i30 N Line and N Line Premium models introduce a sophisticated sportiness via exterior and interior enhancements inspired by the potent i30 N performance hot hatch. More aggressive front and rear bumpers along with 18-inch alloys and N Line badging are among the exterior upgrades”.

There are tweaks on the inside too with new N Line sports seats, steering wheel and gear shifter as well as red contrast highlights and a black headlining.

Beyond the cosmetic changes, though, the i30 N Line is the same as the i30 SR with no changes to power and torque output or suspension tune.
