Prices and which one to buy
Hyundai hasn’t released any pricing information for the Elantra N, but we know that it will basically come fully loaded, with the only options offered are exterior colors and manual or automatic transmission.

Engine, transmission and performance
Hyundai’s new compact sports sedan inherits its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the Veloster N hatchback. That engine makes 275 horsepower in the Veloster N, but thanks to a supercharging feature the company calls N Grin Shift, the Elantra N is rated at 286 horsepower. That gives the Elantra N a huge power advantage over the Jetta GLI. An eight-speed automatic is available, but we’re happy to report that a six-speed manual is standard. During our driving test letterWe noticed aggressive throttle response, crisp handling, and a loud exhaust note, all of which bode well for the production model. The Elantra N’s longer wheelbase gives it a more compliant ride than the Veloster N, but still offers the safety we seek in a sports sedan. When we have the opportunity to bring the Elantra N to our test track, we will update this story with the test results.
Fuel economy and MPG in the real world
According to the EPA, the most fuel-efficient version of the Elantra N is the one with the six-speed manual transmission, which earned ratings of 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Going with the automatic brings those numbers down to 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. When we get a chance to test drive the new high-performance sedan, we will our 75 mph highway fuel economy route and update this story with results.
