2021 Hyundai Elantra Gets Mean-Mugging N Line Treatment

The new Hyundai Elantra compact sedan will get a mean-looking N Line variant with a “performance-inspired” exterior appearance, according to these renderings released by the automaker. The Elantra N Line will at least visually differ from the already handsome Elantra, and according to information previously released by Hyundai, it should offer performance upgrades, too.

The Elantra N Line will wear unique 18-inch alloy wheels and feature the N Line’s signature glossy black accents on the side mirror caps, window accents and side skirts. Hyundai calls the Elantra N Line’s grille an “edgy” version of the Elantra’s new grille design. Two air intakes flank the lower portion of the grille. The brakes will also be larger, and the rear end wears a diffuser and a set of dual exhaust tips.

At this point, we don’t know exactly what performance upgrades the Elantra N Line might get beyond larger brakes, but we do know it will have a more powerful engine than the base 147-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or available 139-hp hybrid powertrain.

The new Elantra goes on sale in the fall, though it wasn’t immediately clear whether the N Line version will be available at launch.
