    Hyundai Unveils The Hot 2022 Elantra N

    The new 2022 Hyundai ELANTRA N is making its U.S. debut. It's part of Hyundai's new N Performance brand and arrives in the winter of 2022.  (Don't confuse the N with the N-Line, they are two different badges). 

    The 2022 ELANTRA N is a high-performance variant of the new, redesigned Elantra. Hyundai says the N badging means it adds strong, dynamic driving capabilities and aggressive design elements to the standard model.  There are more than 40 specialized N elements applied to the ELANTRA N, tuned precisely to enhance driving performance.




    The ELANTRA N is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, direct-injected flat-power engine with a 52-mm turbine wheel and a 12.5-mm turbine passage with an area increased by 2.5 mm. Hyundai says these enhancements, along with the optimization of the shape and material of the cylinder block, improve both performance and durability. As a result, the flat-power technology generates maximum output from 5,500 rpm for brisk acceleration.

    The ELANTRA N flat-power engine is available with an N eight-speed wet, dual-clutch transmission (N DCT), delivering maximum output of 276 horsepower from 5,500-6,000 rpm and torque of 289 lb.-ft. from 2,100 to 4,700 rpm. With N Grin Shift (NGS), the boost pressure temporarily increases, briefly increasing output to 286 horsepower. The ELANTRA N is also available with a standard, close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox.

    ELANTRA N's handling performance is further enhanced by the N Corner Carving Differential (e-LSD), Variable Exhaust Valve System and Launch Control—all of which are specialized, high-performance standard features. For DCT models, N Grin Shift (NGS), N Power Shift (NPS) and N Track Sense Shift (NTS) are standard features that maximize driving engagement.
