Hyundai Elantra N: First official images without camouflage


 

The Korean brand Hyundai completes the development of the high-performance version N of its popular Elantra model, one of the best sellers. At the beginning of this year we met the new generation of the Hyundai Elantra, that is, the most popular model of the Asian firm and it was then that some rumors arose about the arrival of a high-performance version signed by the company's N department. Now, we already know that the Hyundai Elantra N is underway because the brand itself has published its first official images without camouflage, although the entire car is not seen.


The sportiest Elantra


These photographs do not take us by surprise since a few months ago our spies hunted the Korean model in full test phase in Germany, on roads near its facilities. In them, you could see that we were not looking at an old Elantra N Line prototype as the subtle spoiler on the boot lid gave way to a prominent fixed rear spoiler and the double exhaust outlets on the right side of the bumper were replaced by individual ones. larger ones located on both sides.


These two aspects can be clearly seen in the images provided by Hyundai in which a camouflaged specimen with the N theme exhibits its main features. On the front there are changes as the bumper exhibits different air intakes than those of the Elantra N Line, the tires increase in size and are accompanied by red brake calipers on both axles, while in the rear there is a diffuser with the third brake light in the shape of a triangle integrated. We can also anticipate this specimen going lower than normal, suggesting that Hyundai has made suspension changes to improve the car's dynamics.


The Hyundai Elantra N is fitted with Pirelli P Zero tires in 235/35 R19 sizes.


A known propellant


While the aforementioned N Line uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, the example we have in the images uses a larger unit whose displacement amounts to 2.0 liters. Therefore, the N will Elantra 201 to a total of 280 horsepower, which is parallel with the renewed i30 N. All that power will be sent to the front axle via a six-speed manual gearbox or another eight-speed dual-clutch automatic, newly released in the compact sports car.


The brand has announced that in the next two years it intends to add up to a total of seven N and N Line versions to its product range in the United States, with the Elantra N scheduled to see the light before the end of 2021.
