Hyundai has revealed the first photos of the refreshed 2024 Elantra N.
Along with a new face, the track-centric sport compact has enhanced chassis bits, lighter forged wheels, and revised airflow for better cooling.
The N-rated Elantra will reach U.S. dealers early next year, but we're still awaiting pricing.
UPDATE 11/21/23: We got our first look at the facelifted 2024 Hyundai Elantra N earlier this year, and now the automaker has detailed some notable changes designed to improve the sport compact's on-track performance. Among the improvements are a reinforced engine mount, urethane rear-suspension bushings, and new steering components that are claimed to improve feel. There are also several performance-oriented software upgrades. Most notably, the Elantra N sheds 33 pounds of unsprung weight thanks to newly standard forged 19-inch wheels, and higher tire pressures aim to atone for increased loads on the front axle. The sedan's new face includes a redesigned from bumper with air intakes that better direct airflow to improve aero and efficiency as well as better cool the brakes and the radiator. Power from the 2.0-liter turbo four remains 276 horsepower and 289 pound-feet of torque. The '24 Elantra N will go on sale in the U.S. sometime early next year.
It was only a matter of time before the 2024 Hyundai Elantra's new look ported over to the sporty N model, and now we have the first official photos of the performance-oriented Elantra with its refreshed front end. We're still waiting on mechanical details, but we're thinking the Elantra N will keep its powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and hopefully its choice between a manual and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The new look features the same slimmer headlight shape and revised grille up front, with the N-specific red trim and larger air intakes enhancing the aggressive stance. The "H" logo on the hood is now black, and there are two new 19-inch wheel options shown in these images: one black 10-spoke design and another silver five-spoke set with a circular motif. Hyundai hasn't released any photos of the interior, but the Elantra N may offer some infotainment upgrades and new trim options.
The current Elantra N is powered by a 276-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four, and we don't think that engine will change much for 2024. We're hoping it'll still offer a six-speed manual transmission as standard, with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic sticking around as an option.
Stay tuned for Hyundai to release more details on the 2024 Elantra N's U.S. details and specs. It'll likely go on sale on our shores later this year with a starting price a bit higher than the current model's $34,015 entry fee.
