2023 Hyundai Elantra N Interior and Cargo

Hyundai Elantra N Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 Elantra N Interior

The Elantra N has a spacious and modern interior design, and it has been spruced up with numerous extras compared to the regular Elantra. For instance, the N lightweight sport bucket seats with an illuminated N logo not only look great but are supportive too. Metal door sills, N performance gauges, and an N-branded steering wheel are some of the sporty upgrades. On the DCT model, the steering wheel gets standard paddle shifters and a bright red button to activate the NGS mode for an extra 10 hp. Key information is displayed on the 10.25-inch central touchscreen and the 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. There are many standard features like wireless phone charging and heated front seats, although it would have been nice if the driver had a power-adjustable seat.

Seating and Interior Space

Like all Elantra models, the Elantra N is a compact sedan with seating for five occupants. Those in the front are treated to sporty bucket seats with illuminated N logos. Hyundai says the N's seats sit 0.3 inches lower than a standard Elantra seat, providing more headroom and more legroom in the rear thanks to thinner backrests. Both leg- and headroom are ample for average-sized adults. The back seats are large enough for adults, with up to 38.7 inches of headroom and an ample 38 inches of legroom on offer, though the person sitting in the middle will be less than comfortable.

Interior Colors and Materials

The seats are finished in a mix of black leather and microsuede with blue contrast stitching. A leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel are standard too. Metal pedals and scuff plates are further changes that serve as reminders of this being the hottest Elantra you can buy. Although the lower dashboard is made from some harder plastics, the Elantra N's cabin generally feels well screwed together.

2023 Elantra N Trunk and Cargo Space

At 14.2 cubic feet, the Hyundai's trunk closely matches the size of other sedans in this class like the Honda Civic and VW Jetta. That's enough for all your daily needs, and a family of four should be able to manage a weekend away by packing smartly. There is one downside to the Elantra N's versatility, though. A rear brace installed behind the rear seats improves rigidity, but it can get in the way when loading some larger items. Unlike other Elantras, the Elantra N's rear seat only folds as a single piece, not in a 60/40 split, so you can either accommodate longer items or carry passengers at the back - but not both.

Interior storage includes a fixed armrest storage box and a console storage box below the ventilation controls. Dual front cupholders are fitted, but the Elantra N loses out on a rear center armrest with cupholders as found on most non-N Elantras. There are also door pockets in all four doors, although those at the back are a lot smaller than the ones in front.

2023 Elantra N Infotainment and Features


The Elantra N's focus on performance has come at the expense of some features. For instance, those at the back will miss a center armrest, USB ports, and ventilation outlets. There's also no power-adjustable driver's seat. It's not all bad news, however. The Elantra N still gets a six-way manually-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, push-button ignition, wireless phone charging, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a tilt/telescoping steering column. A sporty digital gauge cluster displays all key information, and this model gets N Performance gauges displaying information like oil temperature and turbo boost pressure. On the driver assistance front, the sedan comes with forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist, a rearview camera, and driver-attention warning. Only the DCT model comes with a power sunroof and reverse parking-collision avoidance assist.


The Elantra N sits atop the Elantra model lineup, meaning it gets the larger 10.25-inch infotainment screen as standard equipment. Another 10.25-inch screen is positioned ahead of the driver and displays key driving information.

This infotainment system includes familiar goodies like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus additional technologies such as Hyundai Digital Key, allowing owners to unlock and remote start their car with a smartphone. SiriusXM satellite radio, navigation, Bluetooth, and dual USB ports are all standard. Hyundai's touchscreen is simple to use, with an intuitive layout and quick touch response. Unique to the Elantra N, the infotainment screen houses a special N section, which includes lap timers, performance gauges, and more. The standard sound system consists of eight speakers including a subwoofer, all supplied by Bose.
