N Line launches: The Hyundai Motor Company's retail sales of N Line models, focused on performance-enhancing elements, in India are slowly witnessing an uptick, according to an Auto Car India report. 

The South-Korean brand introduced the N Line range in India with the i20 in 2021, and launched the second product in its line-up, the Venue N Line, in 2022.

While Hyundai has not stated which N Line model will be next, the report confirms that the auto-major will be cashing in further on the popular Creta SUV, set to see an N Line version in the later half of 2024.

The Creta N Line will be based on the Creta facelift that will go on sale in the coming days.

Tweaks are expected to impact the front bumper, grille and front chin with N Line-specific red accents clubbed with gloss black and faux-brushed aluminium bits. 

The upcoming model will also get a unique alloy wheel design, side skirts, N Line badges on the sides and styling tweaks to the rear bumper as well.

Hyundai Creta N Line expected powertrain

With the Creta facelift set to get three engine options with the new 1.5-litre, 160hp, turbo-petrol joining the line-up, replacing the erstwhile 1.4-litre engine, the N Line version of Creta would likely have the same engine option combined with the 7-speed DCT gearbox, the report said. 

Expectations for Hyundai to add a sportier suspension setup, sounding exhaust and slight changes to steering dynamics as with other N Line models are all also on a high.
