Hyundai has released its first teaser of a warm N Line version of the new-generation Elantra sedan.
The camouflage hides the details, but we can see dual exhaust tips, bespoke alloy wheels, a two-pedal setup.
Naturally, it has a sportier body and lower sports suspension compared with the regular Hyundai Elantra. The carmaker informs the N-Line version will benefits from chassis tweaks.
The vehicle will likely get a turbocharged gasoline 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine from the Elantra GT N Line hatch. That unit delivers 201 hp and 195 lb-ft (264 Nm) of torque, and comes with either a 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The launch date is still unknown, but we suppose the Hyundai Elantra N Line will arrive as a 2021 model by the end of this year.
A hybrid modification should follow later, as well as a hot Elantra N with at least 275 hp from a 2.0-liter engine shared with the new Kona N.
The all-new 2021 Elantra and Elantra Hybrid were introduced on March 17, 2020 with a special event broadcast at The Lot Studios in West Hollywood.
The new model brings Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design, hybrid electric vehicle technology, segment-first wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, not to mention the excellent driving dynamics and the most progressive in-car experience in its class.
Hyundai planned to starts the Elantra production this fall, and to begin sales in the Q4 2020.
