The family of sharp N-marked Hyundai models has expanded with another model, this time a sharp Elantra sedan.
Although the Hyundai Elantra sedan is no longer available in the Czech market, Elantra continues in the world markets and following the sporty design of the N Line Edition, the full oil sport tuned version of the Elantra N has been launched.
Under the hood is the well-known 2.0-liter supercharged four-cylinder tuned to 206 kW (280 hp), which we know like the sharp SUV from the newly introduced Kona N model in Europe. Then it promises an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.3 seconds.
The self-locking differential helps transfer power to the asphalt and suppress understeer, but in addition, the Elantra N has received an integrated drive axle (IDA), which improves acceleration and cornering. The car also features larger brake discs with better brake pads and an improved cooling system.
The chassis has also been strengthened, has an improved suspension and a stiffer rear stabilizer. In addition, the automaker uses Michelin Pilot 4S sports tires in size 245/35 R19 on all wheels.
The Elantra N also features the Variable Exhaust Valve system, thanks to which the exhaust can make really aggressive sounds with some crackling. But the engineers also worked on the artificial sound of the engine in the cabin, which should underline the interesting driving feeling. Also, the control unit has the N Grin Shift function, with which it is possible to temporarily increase the engine power up to 10 hp.
The cabin features sports seats with improved lateral steering, a set of N-shaped badges and an improved infotainment system that offers wheel measurement functionality while displaying important data such as oil and coolant temperatures.
The exterior has received a slightly modified mask with a new spoiler, the rear bumper has a more pronounced diffuser with a pair of large round tailpipes, and there is also a decent wing. Of course there are the red decors and the highlighted letter N.
