In this article, I will tell you about the updated 2024 Hyundai Elantra N. Even though the global model is supposed to resemble the Avante N, it is actually the Avante N for South Korea.
Hyundai will unveil the upgraded N variant at Auto Shanghai 2023 in China after updating the ordinary Elantra in February. The Avante, the small-ish sedan’s local moniker in South Korea, is shown in the official pictures. However, the global N variant ought to appear almost identical to the normal model. With new 19-inch wheels and black badging, it retains the stylistic changes made to the standard model.
Hyundai has altered the front bumper by removing some of the black highlights and adding additional body-colored surfaces. The grille appears significantly smaller as a result of being divided by a plastic piece that matches the body color, while the red strip at the bottom has moved up slightly in the middle. The hotter Elantra gets slimmer with the headlights and flanks a new metallic strip that forms a visual connection with the daytime running lights, as seen on the non-N variant.
The lower portion of the bumper is now mostly black in the back, although the front fascia has fewer black accents than before. The red strip, which now extends onto the bumper’s corners, is another modification that is easy to see. The dark Hyundai logo on the trunk lid lies above the rear wing, which appears to have been retained.
Although interior photos haven’t been released, after seeing the 2024 Avante, we don’t anticipate any significant interior modifications for the Elantra N. The powertrain is another thing that’s still missing because it’s not obvious if Hyundai has changed the turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine. The four-pot in the pre-facelift model produces 276 hp and 289 pound-feet (392 Newton-meters) of torque. The two available transmissions—a six-speed manual and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic—should remain the same.
A complete debut is anticipated in the upcoming weeks. In case you missed it, Hyundai has already stated that the next-generation Elantra N will have a petrol engine; however, the i30 N hot hatch is unlikely to join it.
