Hyundai Teases Elantra N, Hear it Crackle

Hottest sport compact sedan, Elantra N, shown wrapped up

  • Hyundai shows Elantra N Line crackling on city streets

  • 276 hp sport compact sedan expected soon


The sport compact sedan is dead? Long live the sport compact sedan. This is Hyundai‘s latest tease of the all-new Elantra N. And if you’re thinking this is a lot of teasers about the car, then you’re not wrong, but the Korean automaker has plenty to brag about.

This isn’t the N Line, which replaces the Hyundai Elantra Sport, this is the really fast one. With a Civic-Si and Jetta-GLI-shattering 276 hp from the 2.0L turbo-four that lives in the Veloster N, we’ve learned.

The video lets us hear that engine, including a suitably throaty sound at idle and on power, along with cracks and burbles on the overrun that at least seem to sound cool without being neighbour-bothering loud. This could be part of the rev-matching on the six-speed stick or included on the N DCT as well.

Filming on perfectly smooth city streets doesn’t do much to showcase the suspension, but with electronically controlled damping all-around, the Elantra N should be able to handle both bumpy and smooth pavement. Especially corners. Larger brakes bring it all to a halt as needed.

Interestingly, Hyundai says that this car can be driven hard on track “just as it is” and we look forward to getting the chance to test that out. Expect the production Elantra N early next year.
