Hyundai Unveils Brand New 2022 Hyundai Elantra N
Hyundai has recently unveiled the brand new 2022 Hyundai Elantra N, which is a high performance version of the Elantra. This everyday sports car packs quite a punch with its 2.0L turbo charger producing 289 lb-ft of torque and 276 horsepower, or up to 286 horsepower with the red N Grin Shift (NGS) button on an 8-speed wet, dual clutch transmission (DCT). This steering wheel mounted button along with paddle shifters gives you a truly unique and exhilarating driving experience. For the more traditional sports car experience the Elantra N also comes in a 6 speed manual transmission.

A Sportier Looking High Performance Elantra
Building on the original Elantra, the Elantra N focuses on maximizing aerodynamics and has a much more aggressive look. A lower and meaner front end is accented by a front lip spoiler with a strip of red to stand out amongst the competition. The racetrack-ready look doesn’t just apply to the front end, an N exclusive rear wing spoiler helps control airflow for improved aerodynamics and maintains the aggressive look. The rear end is finished off with a dual single-tipped exhaust giving the Elantra N a distinct look and feel.
The N-exclusive interior conveys the application of N-branded elements, including the steering wheel, shifter, seats, door scuff panels and metal pedals. The steering wheel with paddle shifters includes the red NGS button (DCT only), raising horsepower to 286 for up to 20 seconds. N button driving modes can be customized and matched in various combinations to suit various drivers. N light sport seats with N illumination are 10mm lower compared to the standard Elantra specification for high-performance drivability. N light sport seats reduce seat back thickness by two inches compared to the base model, further highlighting best-in-class rear seat roominess and practicality.
Unrivaled Handling and Suspension
While the original Elantra is no slouch when it comes to handling, the Elantra N’s handling is further enhanced by the N Corner Carving Differential (e-LSD), Variable Exhaust Valve System and Launch Control, all of which are specially designed high-performance features. The non manual DCT transmission also adds standard features like N Grin Shift (NGS), N Power Shift (NPS) and N Track Sense Shift (NTS) that further enhance the performance and handling of the Elantra N.
For the ultimate braking performance possible the Elantra N is equipped with 14.2 inch brake rotors with additional liquid and air cooling that provide best-in-class performance. For those car enthusiasts that want to take their performance even further a rally car inspired integrated drive axle (IDA) can be equipped to reduce the weight of the driveline while also performing better during extreme lateral g-forces such as high speed cornering.
To make sure you stick tightly to the road under any driving conditions, a dual-compound insulator to the front suspension. This, together with the dual-compound trailing-arm bushing achieves optimal performance in ride and handling as well as noise, vibration, and harshness. Finally, ELANTRA N is the first N vehicle to use 245-section width Michelin® Pilot Sport 4S tires on 19-inch alloy wheels for increased traction and dynamic cornering performance.
All in all the 2022 Elantra N is designed from the ground up to give you the best driving and handling experience offered by any sports car on the market.
