Hyundai’s family of high-performance models is set to grow with the upcoming Elantra N, which was teased in the video (below) introducing the Elantra N TCR racer a few days ago.
Appearing at the end of the video clip, the Elantra N is expected to pack the same uprated 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol that puts out 206kW and 392Nm found in the facelifted i30 N hot hatch.
Transmission option will also likely to follow in on the footsteps of the i30 N, with a six-speed manual as standard and the newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch automatic as an option.
On the styling front, the Elantra N will feature a more aggressive front fascia with deeper intakes. The prototype also shows functional inlets along the edges of the bumper scoops, while the rear end gets a prominent bootlid spoiler and a pair of large exhaust pipes.
Like the i30 N, the Elantra N will roll on larger wheels and feature bigger brakes with red calipers, sportier suspension and tweaked steering ratio.
When it arrives in 2021, the Elantra N will be the only high-performance sports sedan in its segment.
