Hyundai recently announced pricing for the 2022 Kona N and now the company is following up with details about the Elantra N.
Set to arrive this winter, the Elantra N isn’t cheap as pricing begins at $32,925 and climbs to $34,425 when equipped with the optional eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. That’s also before factoring in a $1,025 destination charge.
While the Elantra N costs more than the Volkswagen Jetta GLI, it’s significantly more powerful as the model has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 276 hp (206 kW / 280 PS) and 289 lb-ft (392 Nm) of torque. The vehicle is also equipped with an N Grin Shift function that can temporarily increase the output to 286 hp (213 kW / 290 PS).
Sticking with the performance theme, the Elantra N has a sport-tuned suspension, an integrated drive axle, and increased rigidity thanks to a rear chassis brace. They’re joined by a beefier braking system, launch control, and an electronic limited-slip differential.
That’s only part of the story as the sedan receives a sporty makeover, which includes aggressive fascias, a matte black grille, red accents, and 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. Buyers will also find a front lip spoiler, a rear wing and diffuser, and a sizable dual exhaust system.
The sporty styling continues in the cabin thanks to leather and microsuede front sport seats with heating. They’re joined by a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a matching 10.25-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation. Other niceties include a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a wireless smartphone charger, and an eight-speaker Bose premium audio system.
Rounding out the highlights are an assortment of driver assistance systems including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist. The model also features Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, High Beam Assist, and Safe Exit Warning.
