Hyundai has confirmed it will offer a high-performance version of the 2021 Elantra sedan.
It probably shares its engine with the related Veloster N three-door hatchback.
The Hyundai Elantra N will top the range sitting above the ‘warm’ N-Line modification that the company recently unveiled.
While the Elantra N-Line is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter 201-hp inline-four, the N variant should be more powerful.
So, expect the Veloster N’s 2 .0-liter inline-four engine will power the car, which develops 275 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, and works in combination with a 6-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed DCT found on the 2021 Veloster N.
Being sportier, the Elantra N will look more aggressive than the N Line, meaning it receives N-specific body kit, a large rear spoiler, enhanced chassis, bigger brakes and wheels, and a stiffer suspension.
The new hot Elantra should arrive by the end of next year or early 2022, priced from $30,000.
