A High-Performance Hyundai Elantra N Is Coming

/ Comments

This isn't the only Hyundai model getting the high-performance N treatment either.

Just this week, Hyundai started its teaser campaign for the all-new 2021 Elantra previewing its bold new design direction. The next-generation version of Hyundai's popular sedan will debut on March 17 at The Lot Studios in West Hollywood, California.

Powertrain details are being kept under wraps for now, but a recent claimed Hyundai is planning to give the next-generation Elantra the N-Line treatment with a sporty appearance package. Now, The Korean Car Blog claims that Hyundai will also introduce a full-fat Elantra N that will top the range.

Allegedly, the high-performance Hyundai Elantra N will pack a 2.0-liter turbo engine that produces 275 horsepower to match the Veloster N. Power will reportedly be sent through a six-speed manual transmission and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.

If the report is accurate, this will be a significant power increase over the current Hyundai Elantra, which produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque from a 1.6-liter turbo four-cylinder engine in its range-topping sport guise. Also expect the Hyundai Elantra N to have sportier styling to distinguish it from its standard sibling. This isn't the only new Hyundai model that will get the high-performance N treatment, either.

Recently, our spy photographers caught Hyundai testing a prototype of the long-rumored Kona N sporting wider fenders, beefier brakes, and a dual exhaust system. According to The Korean Car Blog, the Hyundai Kona N will pack the same 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine as the Elantra N producing 275 horsepower paired with a six-speed manual and will launch in 2021.

In addition, the recent Hyundai i30 N facelift will also get the N treatment boosting the hatchback's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder from 275 to 280 hp. While the redesigned Hyundai Sonata won't get the full N performance treatment, the upcoming N-Line variant will feature sporty exterior enhancements and a new turbocharged 2.5-liter engine.
