Hyundai Elantra N revealed with a new 276hp engine

Hyundai has finally revealed the long-awaited, Hyundai Elantra N with all its glory as the new N performance variant not only gets a better engine but also packs many extra features. The Hyundai Elantra N shares various of its components with the ongoing Hyundai i30 N and in Australia the car is even known as the sedan variant of Hyundai i30. Although, in India, Hyundai is yet to launch any of the N performance variants of its line-up or the Elantra 7th generation model, which the car is originally based on.

Talking about the engine first, as the car is an N performance variant. The car now comes with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which is the same as the engine used in the Hyundai i30 N and Kona N, even the performance is the same as the engine generates a maximum power up to 276 hp with 392 Nm of maximum torque, which is coupled either with an 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox along with the standard front-wheel drive option.  

The Hyundai Elantra N comes with three drive options namely N Grin Shift, N power shift and N track sense shift. The carmaker emphasis on the N Grin Shift as this model enables the engine to boost the power output up to 285 hp. Deceasing the 0-100 sprint time to just above 5 seconds.

As the car already looks pretty darn good thanks to the styling of the Elantra 7th generation, there isn’t much to change in the car, however, the Elantra N gets a few changes like a majorly reprofiled front bumper that carries larger air intake vents and plenty of blacked-out highlights like the window lining, blacked out ORVMs and many more. the rear on the other hand gets a rear diffuser along with twin-tip exhaust along with new bespoke 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.     

The interior almost remains identical to the regular with exception of the N performance specific steering wheel and a slightly modified infotainment system that now also displays many performance aspects of the car like coolant temperature, torque, lap timer and many more things.
