The Elantra N Line Is Hyundai’s Answer To The Skoda Octavia RS245!

This spicy looking Hyundai packs a punch thanks to a host of mechanical upgrades


  • Elantra N Line comes with a 201PS 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine.
  • Gets paddle shifters and sits on stiffer springs with an independent rear suspension
  • It features N-specific design upgrades to complement the extra performance.

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the Hyundai Elantra N Line, a go-faster version of the new-gen Elanra with piping hot looks. But before we delve deep into its design, let’s talk about its engine.  The Elantra N Line comes with a 1.6-litre turbo-charged petrol engine that develops 201PS and 264Nm of torque. Yes, these figures aren’t in the same league as the only performance oriented mid-size sedan sold in India, the Octavia RS245 that develops a mighty 245PS and 370Nm! That said, Hyundai is yet to reveal the Elantra N-Line’s acceleration figures and we hope it’s quite close to the Octy. 


A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic is the only transmission offered with the Hyundai Elantra N Line. It gets paddle shifters that let you take manual control over the transmission to keep the powertrain in the meat of the powerband. Complementing the added performance are a set of stiffer springs, independent rear suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels.

But the Elantra N Line is not entirely about performance as it also looks the part of a sporty sedan. Yes, that giant cascading grille has been retained but the N Line variant gets aggressive airdams in the bumper. It also sits lower and the stance is further enhanced with sleek looking alloys and side skirts. We quite like the rear three-quarters of the Elantra N Line as it gets a coupe-like roofline that flows neatly to the boot lid that comes with an integrated spoiler. The rear design is rounded off with a set of connected tail lamps and dual exhaust tips.  


Inside, the Elantra N Line comes with a black dashboard with plenty of red stitching. The seats have been beefed up while the headrests get the letter ‘N’ engraved in them. It also comes with a host of driver assistance features like forward collision assist, lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, and blind spot collision assist. 

Sure, the Elantra N Line’s engine isn’t as powerful as the Octavia RS’. But it looks to excite buyers with peppy performance, a long list of features and tempting looks. Hyundai has toyed with the idea of bringing its N Line cars to India before and we hope to see the Elantra N Line on our roads in the near future. Fingers crossed!
