The performance-focused N Brand brings sporty elements to the Elantra for the first time in the sedan’s seven generations.
Hyundai has announced that the rather nondescript Elantra sedan will receive a shot of go-go juice for the future. The N Brand is Hyundai’s performance line, and the Elantra is set to be an attractive entry point for customers interested in faster daily drivers. The render Hyundai has provided is fantastically sleek.
The Elantra N Line is distinguished by squatty styling, both low and wide. The fascia is bolstered by an edgy N Line version of Hyundai’s signature cascading grill, N Line badging and motorsport-inspired air intake. The Elantra N Line’s side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels equipped with larger brakes further aid in performance and invoke a sporty aesthetic.
The side mirrors, N Line window accents and side skirts are all finished in the N Brand’s trademark gloss black. The rear end of the Elantra N Line has been designed with low and wide styling, all flowing down to the single twin exhausts and rear diffuser.
“Elantra N Line offers a more aggressive design that incorporates N Line’s signature red accents inside and out at an attractive price,” said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President, Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Group. “This will definitely satisfy those who are looking to join the Hyundai N community.”
The Elantra has proved to be one of Hyundai’s iron men, still pushing forward now in its seventh generation. The Elantra N Line is marketed to provide an easier entry model for the N Brand, which has been gaining popularity with drivers globally. Other N Brand models include the Veloster N, i30 N and i30 Fastback N, along with several N Line models in select markets. The N models bring full performance capability to daily driving while N Line trims add tasteful performance-inspired elements to base model vehicles.
