On tests seen “charged” sedan Hyundai Elantra N 2022

August 25, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Automobile publications have published photos of a test prototype of the high-performance sedan Hyundai Elantra N. The new 2022 model year received thick exhaust pipes, a large rear wing, and a powerful engine.

Rumors of a sporty N version for the revamped Hyundai Elantra sedan surfaced back in March, and today we bring you the first batch of spy shots to prove the report was accurate. The compact sedan received an N Line version about two weeks ago, and it looks like the South Korean brand is already testing a more powerful version of the model on the streets of Germany.

You can easily tell that this is definitely not the recently unveiled Elantra N Line, given some obvious changes at the rear.

Gone is the thin lip spoiler on the boot lid – in its place is the more prominent fixed rear wing. In addition, the twin tailpipes on the right side of the bumper have been replaced with noticeably larger tailpipes located on the left and right to give the car a much more aggressive look.

It looks like the wheels were borrowed from the “charged” Veloster N hatchback, and there are red brake calipers on the front and rear axles. We get the feeling that the car is closer to the road than the regular version of the model, which suggests a tighter suspension tuning for better handling.

While the front fascia is largely hidden behind disguise, we do notice a change in the bumper as the air intakes are different from those in the Elantra N Line. They appear to be quite small, but that could be due to disguise.

While the N Line uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine, the more powerful Elantra N will have a larger 2.0-liter engine. The power will allegedly increase from 201 to 275 hp. (353 Nm). Hyundai is expected to sell the Elantra N with a six-speed manual transmission and an optional eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that was recently introduced in the Veloster N.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Hyundai and KIA are preparing to release a new car. Such information appeared after the publication of data on a new patent. True, there are no additional details about what the model will become.
