The sixth Hyundai N model appears to be ready for track day.

The first official images of the 2022 Hyundai Elantra N have been revealed by the Korean automaker. The said vehicle is the latest Hyundai under the car brand’s high-performance N range. The Elantra N is Hyundai’s sixth N brand model, following the debut of the Kona N last April.

The Elantra N is the performance-oriented version of the standard Elantra that was launched in April 2020. The standard Elantra has also been given an N-Line cosmetic upgrade last August 2020, which features a sharper exterior design. The Elantra N-Line is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that puts out 201 hp and 265 Nm of torque.  

To put things in perspective, Hyundai’s N badge means that the vehicle is tuned to deliver a high-performance output. The N-Line, on the other hand, refers to the sporty styling package integrated into the vehicle.

Hyundai said that the Elantra N reveals the sportier side of its compact sedan. The automaker added that it is designed to be a high-performance sedan that’s intended to be a “race proven sportscar.”

“Elantra N is a high-performance sedan that reveals the sportier side of our exceptional all-new Elantra through exciting N brand enhancements. We designed it to be a race proven sportscar with dynamic driving capabilities and style that performance enthusiasts love,” said Hyundai Vice President of N brand Management Till Wartenberg.

Details about the 2022 Hyundai Elantra N are scarce as of the moment. The official teaser images show that the vehicle will have a set of distinctive wheels along with bright red N brand side skirts. The side skirts are said to help boost the Elantra N’s performance by better channeling airflow, but also create the effect of a lowered chassis. The teaser image also shows that the Elantra N is fitted with an N-exclusive rear spoiler, and a bold black trim beneath the rear bumper. 

Hyundai will reveal more details about the Elantra N in the coming weeks. The Korean automaker has also yet to announce the launch date of its latest N vehicle.
