The 2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line Looks Freaking Good in New Teaser
Hyundai is expected to replace the previous Elantra Sport with the new Elantra N Line, and now we finally have an idea of what the sports sedan will look like. While we will have to wait for Hyundai to release the final product, these teaser images hint at a much more aggressive Elantra model.
Up front, the Hyundai Elantra N Line features a modified grille design with subtle badges. The biggest change, however, is the bold new air intakes. The side profile, meanwhile, is accentuated by special window fittings, exterior mirrors and side skirts painted in glossy black. At the rear you will find a set of double exhaust pipes, a unique feature of the model. Finally, 18-inch alloy wheels cover a set of more robust brakes.
We still don’t know how much power the Elantra N Line will produce, or even what engine will be under its hood. But it can very well use the same 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder from the old Elantra Sport. Expect a slight increase in production compared to the 201 horses in the sport.
Unfortunately, the N Line probably won’t pack a manual transmission. Instead, the sedan will likely channel power to the front wheels through the previous Sport’s seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission or the new eight-speed unit in the Veloster N 2021.
Hyundai has yet to announce the entry cost of the N Line, but the South Korean brand is expected to keep the price reasonably low. (Hyundai says the Elantra N Line “will provide an attractive entry point for the N brand.”) In the United States, the brand already offers an attractive N Line version of the hatchback Elantra GT. For true high performance upgrades, buyers will want to switch to one of Hyundai’s all-round N models. Unfortunately, for the moment, the United States only receives the Veloster N, but we Yanks can receive a Kona N along the line.
