2021 Hyundai Elantra Sedan to get N Line Treatment

Goodbye Sport model, hello N Line.


  • 2021 Hyundai Elantra to get sporty N Line variant; first time for the sedan.
  • Turbocharged 1.6L four develops 201 horsepower.
  • New Elantra set to go on sale in Q4 2020.

After unveiling the all-new 2021 Hyundai Elantra sedan during a webcast last March, the Korean brand has just released teaser images of an upcoming N Line variant, which will confront the Volkswagen Jetta GLI, the Kia Forte GT and the Honda Civic Si.

2021 Hyundai Elantra GT Facelift Teased

Although the Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback has been available in N Line trim for a couple of years now, it’s the first time the sedan will be available with it. The company’s N Line variants receive a sportier appearance and mild performance and handling enhancements, unlike proper N brand products such as the Hyundai Veloster N—and the i30 N sold in other markets.

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line sedan will benefit from design elements such as a more aggressive looking front fascia, reshaped front and rear bumpers, dual exhaust tips, glossy black mirror caps and racier 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside, we also expect to find a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel and bolstered leather-clad sport seats, along with red contrast stitching and pinstriping.

Since this will be the range-topping trim level, the N Line should also get a full array of features, including dual-zone climate control, BlueLink remote services, an Infinity sound system, heated and ventilated front seats, lane keep assist, forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking and pedestrian detection as well as adaptive cruise control with traffic stop and go.

A Digital Key function will also be available, allowing owners to unlock and start the car by using a smartphone or an NFC card instead of a keyfob. The new Elantra can also be optioned up with two 10.25-inch screens—one for the driver instrument panel and an infotainment touchscreen—under one big piece of glass.

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra N Line sedan will likely replace the Sport model in the current lineup, it will be equipped with the brand’s turbocharged, 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine that develops 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque, matched to a front-wheel drivetrain through either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters. It will also receive some chassis upgrades to liven up driving dynamics, in addition to stickier performance tires.

Sales of the redesigned Elantra sedan are scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2020.
