Test drove a 2019 N-Line and loved it, but the dealer sold it out from under me. Also liked the 2018 GT Sport, but that dealer wouldn't honor their advertised price (likely just a ploy to get me to come in). Lots of shady dealers out there...may end up going out of state for a good deal.I've been looking at the same options, except in my area the used 2018 sport is around $21K OTD with under 35K miles. So for me, I'm waiting for the new 2020 N-Line to come out bc it will be listed at only a couple hundred more than the prices of the 2019s right now (OTD $25K). Plus there will most likely be great finance offers and cash back bonuses. On my other forum the big difference is raved as the suspension. They all say that once you drive them both you will be in love with the precision of the N Line. The downfall is waiting for the 2020 to come out. It doesn't have a release date yet, but they're predicting late August to early October. Whichever way I have to go (depending on how long my HHR will limp) I definitely will go 2018+ bc the cut off of the previous line ended with 2017, those and earlier have too many little issues that got fixed in 2018. There is no N-Lines within 100 miles of me so I'll be holding out until the end of July to test drive when I go out of state. That will set my decision in stone and if I like it, I'll be waiting for the pre order to hit of the 20s

Blind spot monitoring wasn't a deal breaker for me so I went for a N-Line. I think the pros of the N-line (exterior styling, stiffer suspension, stiffer engine mounts, nicer rims etc) outweighed the blind spot monitoring
I'd like to bring this back from the grave as I'm literally about to make this choice.
The only reason I'd want a 2018 sport over the N-Line(here in Canada) is the blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alerting.
Has anyone considered these things and made a choice based them?
