The N Line is to Hyundai what the AMG Line is to Mercedes-Benz. It essentially brings sportier looks with cosmetic upgrades along with a mild hike in performance through subtle changes. Hyundai has been offering N Line versions of its cars in several markets globally and the newest offering that will get the sportier derivative will be the Creta compact SUV. In fact, a new set of images show the Hyundai Creta N Line being tested without any camouflage confirming the model’s imminent global debut.
Compared to the standard version, the Hyundai Creta N Line will get cosmetic changes including a bigger and wider grille similar to the new Tucson, a white-finished bonnet lip, and a redesigned bumper with plenty of sharp lines for a new and sportier look. The Creta N Line skips the roof rails considering the car won’t be doing much heavy lifting. The model also comes with side claddings finished in matte black for a sporty look. At the rear, the model will get subtle revisions to the bumper and taillights with new split lights and a projection on the tailgate. There is also a shark-fin antenna and dual-exhaust tips.
Other upgrades will include a revised suspension set-up that will be stiffer as well, while the exhaust is likely to have a more throaty sound with a stronger base on the Hyundai Creta N Line. Expect to see an black cabin with N Line upholstery including red stitching and aluminium paddles. The Creta N Line is expected to debut first in Brazil before making its way to other emerging markets globally. This is likely to include India as well in the future. The automaker launched the N Line brand in the country last year and is expected to follow it up with the Venue N Line this year.
The Hyundai Creta N Line for India is likely to come with the 1.4-litre turbo petrol motor with the DCT unit. The new N Line model would be a nice addition to the family and something for Hyundai to promote in 2023. It could also coincide with the launch of the Creta facelift expected to arrive either by the end of this year or early next year.
