Hyundai Elantra N Should Get Veloster N Power

This kind of power will put Hyundai’s Elantra N between GTI and Golf R territories

  • With 275 horsepower, it will be quick.

  • The Elantra N should hit the road in late 2021 or early 2022.

This week is without a doubt brought to us by the letter “N” and Hyundai. Yesterday, news of the arrival of the Tucson N Line put rumours to bed, as did Hyundai confirming that there will be seven N and N Line products launched in just over two years’ time. Next, the Elantra N.

Hyundai already has a few entries in the hot compact segment with the Elantra N Line and surprisingly good Veloster N. But, as they say, build it and they will buy… The Elantra N will be a considerable notch above the N Line in many respects including power.

While the Elantra N Line gets the brand’s turbocharged 201-horsepower 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine, the full-on Elantra N should, according to Car And Driver, earn the Veloster N’s more potent turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine.

With 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, the N will slide above the Honda Civic Si and Volkswagen Golf GTI and the Honda Civic Type R and Volkswagen Golf R. As is usually the case, the Elantra N will likely be priced within striking range of the Si and GTI with more kit and technology.

Based on the images supplied, the camo’d Elantra N sports all the aero, deeper front and rear bumpers not to mention a huge rear spoiler and twin tailpipes. N brakes are clearly visible as well. We assume the Elantra will also gain appropriate chassis upgrades as well.
