Hyundai Motor Company has launched the new Elantra N Line.
The new model is designed and engineered to deliver more enhanced driving fun to the bold new Elantra that was launched in April.
The Elantra N Line is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI engine. It’s capable of 201hp and a peak torque of 264Nm.
The engine is paired with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
A stiffened suspension is complemented by 18-inch alloy wheels, independent multi-link suspension at the rear and larger front brake rotors to deliver gripping performance in the corners.
The Elantra’s cascading grille gets a more aggressive look with an N Line badge and an intricate geometric pattern. Arrow-shaped air curtains on the lower fascia support aerodynamic performance and engine cooling while giving the model a high-performance image.
The Elantra N Line also receives sporty side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels to accentuate the fastback’s low and wide stance.
Arrow-like creases feature on the body panels from the flank. Glossy black mouldings on the wheel wells, wing mirrors and side skirts add modern sophistication to the overall appearance.
An integrated spoiler, twin chrome exhaust pipes and an N Line rear diffuser add to the car’s performance-inspired styling.
SPORTY INTERIOR TOUCHES
Driver-oriented features, such as paddle shifters and a Drive Mode Selector system enable a racing-inspired experience behind the wheel.
The Elantra N Line also receives new interior design elements which include a leather-wrapped and perforated N steering wheel and N sport seats with leather bolsters.
A gearshift lever with metal accents and leather inserts and alloy pedals add to the car’s sportiness.
Hyundai has also launched N performance parts for those who want to further customise Hyundai N Line models to suit their personalities.
The N performance parts provide a more dynamic driving experience beyond the base model, allowing customers to get more of the N experience.
Following the launch of the new Elantra N Line, Hyundai plans to introduce the Sonata N Line to expand the lineup. The Sonata N Line will have a turbocharged 2.5-litre GDI engine.
