New Hyundai Elantra N Line gets turbocharged and sporty designApril 28, 2020
The South Korean automaker announced a sports model, presenting several images and a video showing a masked prototype.
Although Hyundai remains up to date with technical specifications and has not yet announced a launch date, it did show that the 2021 Elantra N Line will benefit from a series of chassis upgrades, a new turbocharged engine and some visual changes.
The prototype shown in the photo has new rims shod in low-profile tires, and the car body is hidden under camouflage, and probably has an upgraded front and rear bumpers to give the sedan a sportier and more aggressive look.
The company reports that the Elantra N Line will be powered by a turbocharged engine without providing any additional parts. However, we suspect that it will be the same 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the Elantra GT N Line hatchback (also sold as the i30 N Line), delivering 201 hp. power and available either with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed “automatic”. Drive – front.
As already mentioned, some changes to the chassis will be made to improve the handling of the car and create better driving dynamics. In all likelihood, by the summer we will see a production model, and sales of new items will start in the fall.
In the future, the Hyundai Elantra N will use the familiar 2.0-liter GDi turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine from the i30 N and Veloster N with 271 hp of torque. and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque. This model will also have several other performance improvements, including adaptive suspension and enhanced brakes.
