An exciting new development is in the works. Hyundai recently introduced the all-new Elantra N performance sedan. Joining the Kona and Tucson, the Elantra is the latest model to receive these exhilarating style and powertrain updates.
“Hyundai Motor’s high-performance N brand constantly aims to provide customers with a range of exciting choices for increased driving pleasure,” said Till Wartenberg, Vice President and Head of N Brand Management & Motorsport sub-division at Hyundai Motor Company. “ELANTRA N is the purest expression of our mission to date.”
Under the hood of the new Elantra N is a turbocharged 2.0-litre direct-injection engine that delivers 276 horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque with the available N eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission (N DCT). You can temporarily amp up the Elantra N to 286 horsepower with N Grin Shift (NGS), which boosts the pressure to give you more power. The standard transmission is a close-ratio six-speed manual that offers a more classic feel when shifting. Additional high-performance standard features include the N Corner Carving Differential, a Variable Exhaust Valve System, and Launch Control.
Complementing the sporty performance of the Elantra N is its athletic style — inside and out. The exterior takes on a more aggressive appearance thanks to a lip spoiler on the lower fascia as well as the N-exclusive red strip that starts in the front and continues to the side valance. The rear features an N-exclusive wing spoiler with a rear diffuser that helps with airflow for improved aerodynamics. Inside, N-branded elements can be found on the steering wheel, seats, gear shifter, metal pedals, and door scuff panels.
The new Hyundai Elantra N is expected to arrive at dealerships by the end of the year. For more details about this exhilarating vehicle, contact our team at Downtown Hyundai in Toronto, Ontario.
