Hyundai’s Elantra sedan for the first time gets an N-Line performance model. It's powered by a 201bhp 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine.
Hyundai has taken the wraps off its highly chiselled Elantra N-Line. The Elantra N-Line is the most performance-oriented version of the Elantra. It's the first time Hyundai has developed an N-Line model for the Elantra sedan. The standard Elantra is, of course, a sharp-looking car, but the N-Line has advanced its design by a couple of yards, with its huge all-black N-Line front grille and plenty of angular design lines. The front bumper too has been re-sculpted to feature very angular lines to house the faux air ducts at the bottom. It’s a similar story around the back, with a protruding boot lid design, which now incorporates a subtle but equally sharp rear spoiler, further enhanced by the fastback roofline. The side profile too features a subtle side skirt, while the 18-inch alloy wheels are exclusive to the N-Line model.
To match its sharp looks, the new Elantra N-Line is powered by Hyundai’s 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine, which is good for 201bhp of max power and 265Nm of peak torque. The car is available with a choice of a six-speed manual gearbox as well as a seven-speed double-clutch autobox. The car also gets bigger front disc brake rotors and a multi-link rear suspension setup.
Inside, the cabin gets an all-black treatment with sports seats, an N-Line leather-wrapped steering wheel with metal spokes, alloy pedals, and paddle shifters.
