Inspired by Hyundai’s high-performance N Brand, the Elantra N Line builds on the all-new Elantra with sporty design enhancements, livelier handling, and a more potent powertrain.

Under the hood, the Elantra N Line carries a 1.6-liter GDI turbo engine that makes 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This can be paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed double-clutch transmission with paddle shifters.

The Elantra N Line also boasts performance upgrades like a stiffened suspension for better grip, a multi-link independent rear suspension, and bigger front brake rotors.

The exterior of the Elantra N Line is styled to look lower, wider, and more dynamic. Design elements like N badging, a geometric grille, arrow-shaped air curtains and side creases, gloss-black accents, and 18-inch alloy wheels emphasize the model’s sportiness. The car’s sculpted rear boasts chrome twin exhaust, an N Line rear diffuser, and an integrated spoiler.

Inside, the Elantra N Line presents track-inspired features like N sport seats with leather bolsters, a shifter with leather and metal elements, alloy pedals, and a spoked steering wheel wrapped in perforated leather. Drive Mode Selector allows drivers to customize the vehicle’s performance based on personal preferences and road conditions.

The Elantra N Line integrates a full complement of modern safety and infotainment tech. Hyundai Digital Key is included, along with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic warning, driver monitoring, and automatic high beams are provided as well.

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line is expected to go on sale sometime this fall at dealerships around the U.S.
