Hyundai Elantra N debuts with angry looks and up to 290 hp


That’s right. While the Elantra N Line only dreams of being a “hot sedan”, the Elantra N (Avante N in Korea) debuts as an actual hot sedan offering not just looks but also a matching powertrain that’ll rival the likes of Octavia RS, for example.


As for the looks, the Elantra N wears the Hyundai N-typical body kit with a sporty front bumper, side skirts, a fixed rear wing, and a rear diffuser with circular tailpipes on either side. This particular example wears the N-typical standard color combination which is Performance Blue with subtle red highlights. The front fascia with more black elements makes the car look like it is wearing some kind of an eye mask. Rounding off the overall looks are 19-inch wheels wrapped with 245-size Michelin PS4S tires. The front discs are fairly large, measuring 360 mm. The Elantra N also gets the ECS or Electronic Controlled Suspension that debuted with the Kona N.
