Hyundai Elantra is one of the historical examples of the Korean brand, but it is no longer relevant in our market and does not even exist on the national website. This new Elantra “N”, however, does not sound bad at all.
The N version also became part of the Elantra range, which is sold as the Avante in South Korea. In Portugal, it is a well-known name, but here, we don’t even know its latest generation, because there are more alternatives that fit our market.
Last July, however, the brand presented the sportiest option in this range, equipped with a two-liter turbocharged engine with a power of 280 horsepower, as well as a two-speed automatic gearbox. In terms of performance, Hyundai claims a top speed of 250 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds.
Despite this, one of the best things about this “N” is the sound it produces, making its performance look find another expression in places like the circuit of Estoril, for example, where this new version was photographed. To hear what it sounds like, Hyundai has just released a video featuring this new model.
