Hyundai teases rendering of new Elantra N Line
The Hyundai Elantra is one of the more popular compact sedans in the market today, thanks to its combination of sleek styling, affordability, and overall dependability.
But all too often, “affordable” is often synonymous with “boring,” “generic,” and “lacking.”
For those who associate these words with the Elantra, the South Korean car brand has something exciting in store especially for you.
Earlier this week, Hyundai Motor Company released a design rendering of the new Elantra N Line sport sedan. With the N Line badging, the seventh-generation Elantra finally gets some much-needed infusion of performance enhancing tweaks including a sporty, low and wide style with mesh grille, single twin exhausts, side skirts and custom 18-inch alloy wheels.
The mesh grille carries the N Line version of the South Korean carmaker’s signature cascading grille, enhanced by motorsport-inspired air intakes, then capped off with N Line badging.
Behind the 18-inch alloy wheels are highly visible brake calipers, underlining the N Line Elantra’s sportier stance.
Meanwhile, the side mirrors, N Line window accents and side skirts are all finished in the N Line’s signature gloss black. A lusciously sculpted rear completes the car’s overall low and wide styling, elevated further by single twin exhausts and a rear diffuser.
Aside from providing Elantra shoppers with a performance-inspired option, the Elantra N Line is also intended to provide additional enticement for the N Brand, which is said to be “gaining popularity with drivers and performance enthusiasts around the world,” according to Hyundai.
“Elantra N Line offers a more aggressive design that incorporates N Line’s signature red accents inside and out at an attractive price,” said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President, Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Group. “This will definitely satisfy those who are looking to join the Hyundai N community.”
No word yet on when the Elantra N Line will hit the world’s showrooms. For now, we’ll have to make do with the regular Elantra, available at a price range of PHP970,000 to 1.06 million.
