The newest addition to the 2021 Elantra line-up brings the model’s first-ever N Line model. Designed and engineered to deliver more enhanced driving fun, the Elantra N Line serves as an entry-point to Hyundai’s high-performance N Brand line-up while also expanding its appeal to a wider audience.

Interior design elements, including a leather-wrapped perforated N steering wheel with metallic spokes, N sport seats with leather bolsters, gearshift with metal accents and leather inserts, and alloy pedals, complement Elantra’s sporty exterior styling.

Elantra N Line’s ‘low and wide’ exterior styling and ‘Parametric Dynamics’ design theme gets aggressive with the N Line badge and arrow-shaped air curtains to aid aero performance and engine cooling. Twin exhausts and a new rear diffuser complete the performance look while gloss black molding on the wheel wells, side-view mirrors, and side skirts provide a touch of modern sophistication to the overall appearance.

Following the launch of the new Elantra N Line, Hyundai plans to launch Sonata N Line with 2.5-liter turbocharged GDI engine in 2020 to further expand the N Line lineup.
