Hyundai has just dropped an official action trailer of the first-ever Elantra N-Line (Avante N-Line). The video reveals the bassy exhaust note of the Elantra's performance variant, while giving a glimpse of its sportier exteriors.
Hyundai is rapidly increasing the count of its performance oriented N-Line variants lately. After Hyundai i30, Hyundai i30 Fastback, Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai i10, the Elantra is now company's fifth official car to have received the N-Line treatment.

The video (below) intends to show the 'sportier' side of the Elantra N-Line which has presumably acquired a number of performance oriented updates.
The videoed unit is seen undergoing track test under a heavy camouflage which hides away the new styling tweaks. But, it would be safe to assume that the car will feature some general styling changes as seen on previous N-Line models such as sportier grille and bumpers, bigger air inlets, unique alloy wheels, twin-tip exhaust outlet and N Line badges.
Inside, expect perforated leather steering wheel stamped with N-Line logo, new sportier gear lever boasting metal accents and leather inserts, metal pedals, and sport seats with N-Line branding. Also an all-black interior theme is also a possibility.
Speaking of the mechanicals, the car will most likely run on a 1.6-litre T-GDi turbocharged direct-injection petrol powerplant belting out a maximum power of 200 PS. This unit may feature two gear-box options - a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Along with the engine, it will also be updated with a sportier suspension set-up, lowered ride height, and lighter component to boost its overall performance.
Expect it to go on-sale in the international market by 2021, but India will most likely be skipped from the list.
