The carmaker promised that the first-ever Hyundai Elantra N performance sedan would arrive this winter. Now the time has come: the pricing is set.

The car with a six-speed manual transmission with rev-matching costs $32,925, while the version with an 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission and paddle shifters is priced at $34,425, each including a $1,025 destination and handling charge.
This hot sedan is Hyundai’s third N vehicle after the i3 and Kona.

At the heart of the model, there is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder engine delivering 276 horsepower and 289 pound-feet of torque.
We must admit the Hyundai Elantra N offers a long list of standard advanced driver assistance features, including, among others, Traction Control System & Hill Assist Control, High Beam Assist, roof-mounted side-curtain airbags, Vehicle Stability Management, Parking Distance Warning – Reverse.
The sedan also offers such a ‘convenience’ feature as Dynamic Voice Recognition.
The model was first launched in South Korea under the Hyundai Avante N name. Now it’s going on sale in the United States, and later on will reach the markets where the regular Elantra is popular.
