We already have seen the very first pictures of Hyundai Elantra N prototype, we also have heard how its sounds (and its amazing!), and what remains is to know how it looks, and today and thanks to NY Mammoth deisgner, we can have an idea of how the most aggresive Elantra will look. What do you think?
What we know so far?
After a year of hiatus, Hyundai N-performance brand is back and despite what they initially said and what they did with the Sonata (making N-line instead of N) we have discovered that Hyundai is already working on high-performance variant of its new mid-size sedan.
The 7th generation Avante CN7 (domestic name of Elantra in South Korea) will finally have both, N-Line and N variants. While we thought we only will see a N-line variant, like what happened with the Sonata DN8, a new report says N-line will replace former Avante Sport.
The new N-Line model will have the sporty exterior design but not the driving performance of the N model and the upcoming Avante N will be a real N with a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine, instead of a 1.6 Turbo and not just a N in shape.
Will be equipped with a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine that delivers a maximum output of 275 horsepower and a maximum torque of 36 kg.m, the same as Veloster N or i30 N, and is expected to be combined with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 8-speed DCT.
The Avante N is a full-fledged four-door sedan and is expected to be a versatile, high-performance model that can be used as a daily car for everyday use and fun driving on the circuit on weekends, according to Albert Biermann, Hyundai Motor Group Head of R&D.
The camouflaged prototype shows Veloster N alloy wheels, combined with Performance Blue paint, characteristic of N models, alongside of two big exhaust pipes.
