Hyundai Teases a Sportier Version of the 2021 Elantra: Meet the Elantra N Line

Hyundai has wasted no time. After introducing the “regular” 2021 Elantra, the Korean automaker has announced that a “warmer” version is coming in the form of the Elantra N Line.

Previewed by these camouflaged photos, the Elantra is getting its first N Line treatment. With that, it gets specific upgrades to its design, chassis, and engine—but all short of the full N treatment.

It must be reiterated that the “N Line” sits directly below the “N” brand. Whereas the N brand develops high-performance versions of existing Hyundai cars, the N Line simply adds sporty design elements and further refinements to its chassis and powertrain.

The Hyundai Elantra N Line is expected to bow in around the same time as the “regular” Elantra compact sedan.

Review: 2018 Hyundai Elantra 2.0 GLS

It’s painful to see what Hyundai has done with the Elantra. From a world-beating compact sedan that had the Japanese almost beat down pat, it’s now good as gone; plummeting into obscurity just as quickly as it rose to fame. It’s the automotive equivalent of being a K-Pop one-hit wonder. It was classy, sexy, and original. Now, it’s simply overpriced, unoriginal, and sadly, uninteresting.

Review: 2016 Hyundai Elantra 1.6 GL A/T

When Hyundai launched the fifth-generation Elantra in 2011, it almost turned the compact sedan segment upside down. Once a segment cornered by the Japanese, it was now being seriously contended by a car from an unlikely manufacturer. The Elantra “MD,” as that model is codenamed, rocketed to second in the local sales charts for a time. Wait lists were long and reviews were glowing. Since then, the Japanese fought back. That brought the Elantra back into obscurity despite a mild refresh. Now, Hyundai is out with their all-new Elantra. The question is: can they turn the tide?

Review: 2015 Hyundai Elantra 1.6 S A/T

Photos by Ulysses Ang
When the Hyundai Elantra arrived in the local scene in 2012, it revolutionized the compact car genre. From a segment practically cornered by the Japanese, the Elantra has since turned it into a free-for-all slugfest. Today, compact car buyers are less brand loyal and more focused on getting great value. Indeed, the swoopy Elantra is responsible for removing existing prejudices and opening minds to considering a brand like Hyundai. Fast-forward three years later and the players are still fighting tooth and nail just to get the would-be buyer’s attention. So what does the ‘game-changer’ do? Stick to a tried-and-tested formula.

Hyundai/Kia Admit to Exaggerated Mileage Claims in US

A probe done by the US-based Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has concluded that Hyundai and Kia have both been found guilty of exaggerating a majority of their vehicle's fuel economy claims for the 2012 and 2013 model years. Apparently, the EPA estimates that this practice has been done since late 2010. As such, both of these Korean automakers will compensate the owners of some 900,000 vehicles sold under the now false claims.
