In March 2020, the Hyundai Elantra with the CN7 designation was introduced. In July 2020, the Elantra N-Line was introduced with a sporty design and a 1.6-liter engine under the hood. But now comes Elantra N.

The sports Elantra N received black intake vents on the bumper and red edging at the bottom. From the side you can notice the red edging on the sills and sports wheels, behind which there are 360 ​​mm discs at the front. There must be a pair of exhausts and a wing on the boot lid at the rear.

Inside, you’ll find a sports three-spoke steering wheel with buttons to control driving modes, sports seats upholstered in Alcantara, a passenger handle, aluminum pedals and a sports automatic transmission selector.

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 280 horsepower. In N Grin Shift mode, the engine can produce up to 289 horsepower for a while. The front wheels are driven via an 8-speed N DCT automatic transmission with two wet clutches. Sprinting at 100 km / h takes only 5.3 seconds. Electronically controlled shock absorbers are also a matter of course. The driver can choose the sound of the exhaust system using a system of variable exhaust flaps and an imitation of the sound N, which adds the tone of TCR racing cars. Another innovative feature of the Elantra N is the integrated WRC-style drive axle, which integrates the drive shaft, wheel hub and bearing. This design reduced weight by 1.7 kg and improved traction.
