2022 Hyundai Elantra N Teased as a Performance-spec Sedan

Written by Nizam Shaikh

Last year Hyundai teased the new Elantra in the N Performance avatar. At the time, Hyundai posted a camouflaged image of the Elantra N. Now, the brand has again teased the Elantra N showcasing the sides and alloy wheels of the performance-oriented saloon. Hyundai’s N division brings full performance capability, unlike the N-Line models, which only add performance-inspired elements to the base model. 

Hyundai Elantra N – Design Highlights

The Hyundai Elantra N features the sculpted’‘Parametric Dynamics’’ design theme similar to the all-new Elantra model launched in April 2020. But boffins at the Hyundai N division took cues from the curves and lines, giving the N model a powerful and athletic stance. As a result, the new design renders high-performance sportiness in the sedan and the practicality of an everyday car. 

The Elantra N features bright red N dedicated side sills that enhance the looks of the car and improve the sedan’s performance by channeling airflow. The side sills and the bumper lips also give the Elantra N a lowered chassis. The performance-oriented sedan also comes with a unique N-exclusive rear spoiler that helps counteract lift, increasing the vehicle’s stability at high speeds. Additionally, the car also features a bold black trim below the rear bumper and dual exhaust outlets, distinguishing the performance car from the standard. 

Hyundai Elantra N – Engine Speculations

Hyundai has not revealed the details of the powertrain yet. But speculations are that the Elantra N will come with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. The engine is likely to be borrowed from the Veloster N. The engine makes around 280 PS of power on the Veloster N. The motor could come with a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed DCT automatic. This will allow the sedan to sprint from 0-100 kmph under 6 seconds. The engine will also be capable of propelling the car to a top speed of 250 kmph. 

Hyundai has also confirmed that the brand will reveal more details on the Elantra N in the coming weeks.
