Hyundai to launch more N Line models in India

Hyundai Creta N Line render

Retail sales of sporty Hyundai N Line models in India are slowly seeing an uptick. The Korean brand introduced the N Line range in India with the i20 back in 2021, and in 2022, it introduced the second product in its line-up – the Venue N Line. Both models have seen combined sales of over 10,000 units in 2023, says Hyundai. The brand is now looking to add more models to its India N Line portfolio.

  1. Creta N Line launch expected in coming months
  2. Will be the third N Line model for India
  3. More N Line models to follow

In a recent media interaction, Tarun Garg, COO, Hyundai India, said, “N Line is a very niche product and we are happy with the numbers it has got us. In fact, there will be more N Line products that we will launch in India very soon and we are expecting sales to reach 15,000-20,000 units in the next few years."

While Hyundai has not said which N Line model will be next, we can confirm that the brand will be cashing in further on the popular Creta SUV that will see an N Line version later this year. The Creta N Line will be based on the Creta facelift that will go on sale in the coming days.

The Creta facelift was recently teased ahead of its global debut and going by the styling tweaks the current N Line models have over their standard siblings, one can expect the Creta N Line to follow a similar design theme.

Expect minor tweaks to the front bumper, grille and front chin with N Line-specific red accents clubbed with gloss black and faux-brushed aluminium bits. It will get a unique alloy wheel design, side skirts, N Line badges on the sides and styling tweaks to the rear bumper as well. On the inside, expect an all-black interior theme, N Line specific gear lever and steering wheel with red stitching, among other things.

Hyundai Creta N Line expected powertrain

As we reported recently, the Creta facelift will get three engine options with the new 1.5-litre, 160hp, turbo-petrol joining the line-up, replacing the erstwhile 1.4-litre engine.

This will likely be the engine option on the N Line version as well, mated to the 7-speed DCT gearbox. While we do not expect any changes to the engine output, Hyundai will likely offer a sportier suspension setup, a sportier-sounding exhaust and tweaked steering dynamics as with other N Line models. 

Upcoming Hyundai SUV launches: 2023 and beyond

The first big launch from Hyundai this year will be the Creta facelift, followed by the Creta N Line. The Alcazar is also due for a facelift this year, and the facelifted Tucson that was revealed internationally last year could make it to India sometime in 2024.
