For the 2024 model year, the Hyundai Elantra has undergone significant revisions in terms of exterior design and in-cabin technologies. These updates are also applicable to its sport-oriented N Line and high-performance N variants, which will be released to the market this autumn concurrently with the complete 2024 Elantra lineup.
The forthcoming 2024 Elantra was initially showcased in April of 2023 during the Shanghai Auto Show. Hyundai further expanded upon these initial previews by releasing comprehensive details pertinent to the U.S. market on a subsequent Wednesday.
Parallel to the 2024 Elantra fleet, both the Elantra N Line and the high-performance Elantra N feature a refreshed aesthetic. The front fascia is particularly noteworthy, adopting design elements inspired by the revamped 2024 Sonata, thereby giving it a futuristic visage. The headlights have undergone a transformation, and when coupled with an additional trim piece, contribute to an uninterrupted horizontal line that accentuates the vehicle’s front end.
While the rear-end alterations are comparatively understated, both the N Line and N variants have received updates to their rear fascia. Specific to the N model are new designs for the rear wing, rear diffuser, and exhaust tips.
In addition, both variants are now available with an array of new wheel designs and color schemes, including an N Line-exclusive color known as Exotic Green.
Advanced Handling Features in the 2024 Hyundai Elantra N
Specifically for the Elantra N, Hyundai has integrated a series of modifications aimed at enhancing vehicle handling. These include 19-inch forged alloy wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, an array of chassis adjustments such as a fortified engine mount membrane, and minimization of steering system friction, which, according to Hyundai, optimizes steering precision. The electric power steering software has also been reconfigured to better align with the changes in the chassis and steering system.
As for the powertrains, no modifications have been made. The N Line continues to be powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 201 horsepower to the front wheels via either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Conversely, the high-performance N variant employs a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of directing 276 horsepower to the front wheels through either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
General enhancements that span across the 2024 Elantra series include the addition of rear side airbags, upgraded cabin materials, the inclusion of dual rear seat USB-C ports, and a steering wheel equipped with haptic feedback for active lane control, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert systems.
As of now, Hyundai has not disclosed any pricing information.
