The 2021 Hyundai Elantra is one sharply styled sedan. Now its efficiency will get slightly sharper, too, with the debut of the Elantra N Line, which Hyundai introduced on Wednesday.

The Elantra N Line appears to be like good, and wears Hyundai’s geometric design language nicely. Mannequin-specific aspect skirts and 18-inch wheels give the Elantra a pleasant stance, whereas bigger entrance air intakes, an built-in lip spoiler, twin exhaust pipes and a rear diffuser drive dwelling the extra aggressive nature of this little sport sedan.

It is not all about present, nonetheless. The Elantra N Line is powered by a 1.6-liter turbo I4 engine with 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Each a six-speed guide and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission might be supplied, and Hyundai says the N Line has a multilink rear suspension, bigger entrance brake rotors and a stiffer suspension setup.

Inside, the Elantra N Line will get a brand new steering wheel, sport seats and steel pedals, and the DCT-equipped fashions have paddle shifters. In any other case, the N Line appears to be like to have all the identical inside gear as the usual Elantra, together with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Talking of tech, the N Line will include forward-collision warning, lane-keeping help, automated high-beams, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Hyundai’s nifty Digital Key might be included, as nicely, for Android customers.

It is unclear precisely how a lot the Elantra N Line will value, however the present model — the 2020 Elantra Sport — is available in round $25,000 together with vacation spot. We won’t think about the 2021 N Line might be priced a lot larger than that, that means Hyundai’s little sport compact ought to proceed to be a fairly strong efficiency worth.
