Hyundai Elantra N Confirmed With 276 HP, LSD, Electronic Suspension

276 hp, six-speed stick or 8-speed DCT for Elantra N

  • Hyundai Canada confirms Elantra N getting 276 hp, other N goodies

  • Sports sedan expected late next year


Earlier this week, Hyundai confirmed that with the all-new Elantra would come two different performance versions. The N Line, that basically replaced the previous Sport model and then the good one: The Elantra N. now we know for sure what engine it will get, plus a few more details, and it looks like its the powertrain out of the Veloster N.

That’s a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder making 276 hp, just a single pony more than we get in the Veloster N in Canada. With that power figure, expect it to make about the same 260 lb-ft of torque as well. A six-speed stick will be offered in the new Hyundai Elantra N, likely with the same rev-match as in the Veloster, and there will be an eight-speed wet dual-clutch automatic that’s N-specific. Expect it to also be the same as the one in the Veloster N.

The power figures put it well ahead of segment competitors like the Volkswagen Jetta GLI and the Honda Civic Si, leaving it up to those two automakers to decide whether or not it’s time for a compact hot sedan power war.

Other N-specific components for the new Elantra will include an N Corner Carving Differential, which is Hyundai’s name for the limited-slip front differential with electronic control that can distribute torque from left to right to increase agility. There are 13.6-inch brake rotors up front and 12.4-inches in the rear, significantly larger than those of the old Elantra Sport.

The Elantra N will also come with an electronically controlled suspension, likely similar to that in the Veloster, which can change damping to suit road conditions as well as the drive mode chosen to add stiffness as needed. Large bore exhaust outlets and a variable valve exhaust complete the list of features Hyundai revealed today, so we’ll need to wait for more interior details.
