Hyundai Elantra N
Exterior & Design
In terms of design, the new Elantra N feels like a true performance-oriented sedan. To begin with, the front profile of the car comes with a revised bumper that features wide air intakes for proper cooling and a new front splitter on the lower end.
The side profile on the other hand remains similar to the standard Elantra but with a new edition specific 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped with Pirelli P Zero rubber. For enhanced braking performance, it will get a larger 320mm disc on every single corner.
At the back, the same comes with a wide rear wing and sportier exhausts as standard.
Not much has changed inside keeping in mind the latest iteration of the standard Elantra. Certain updates such as a sportier multi-functional N steering wheel, sports seats, edition specific infotainment system (with oil and coolant temperature and similar important details), similarly treated instrument cluster and lap timer are there to make differentiate it from the standard counterpart.
Being a 5-seater sedan, it will continue to serve practicality whenever required.
Engine & Performance
Under the hood, a power-packed 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a larger turbine wheel churns out a massive 276HP alongside a peak torque of 392Nm. Transmission duties for this setup are handled by an 8-speed DCT gearbox. However, enthusiasts who have an immense inclination towards a manual gearbox are free to opt for them as well.
Need altered performance according to the requirement? The entire trim with DCT gearbox will be available with multiple drive modes including – N Grin Shift, N Power Shift and N Track Sense Shift. There is even a launch control that pushes this extremely capable performance sedan to clock a triple-digit speed in just 5.3 seconds.
