Hyundai unveils the 2019 Elantra GT N Line in Detroit, replacing the Sport

Hyundai unveiled the 2019 Elantra GT N Line at the Detroit Auto Show earlier today and will replace the Elantra Sport in the lineup.

Squeezed between the base model and the “N” model within the product portfolio, the N Line trim offers a few exterior appointments as well as mechanical tweaks that bring the sport factor up a notch. The first model to get the treatment is the Elantra GT. In fact, the GT N Line replaces the Sport variant and aims at competing with other “hot” (or should we say lukewarm) hatches in the business.

In the cabin, its N Line everywhere. A leather-wrapped perforated N steering wheel with metallic spokes, N Line gearshift with sporty metal accents and leather inserts, and red stitching and accents are among the elements that differentiate the N Line from the standard Elantra GT.

A few mechanical improvements were brought to the table. The Elantra GT N Line gets its motivation from the 1.6-liter turbocharged-GDI engine that produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb-pi of torque. It can be paired with the six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed DCT. On the chassis side, the Elantra GT N Line gets new steering tuning and shock calibration compared to the outgoing GT Sport. Also, the springs are 14.3% stiffer in the front and 22% stuffer in the rear.

Hyundai hopes to come out with more N Line models throughout the portfolio. The Elantra GT N Line starts at 23,300$US when equipped with the 6-speed manual gearbox and 24,400$US when the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission works the wheels.
