You won’t see it in Europe and it’s really a shame. The new generation of the Hyundai Elantra can boast of a very attractive design in its conventional versions so dress with the sports package «N» it does not disappoint. By the way, in certain markets it is called i30 Sedan, marketing stuff.
These days deliveries start in Australia from new i30 Sedan / Elantra 2.0 TGDI with 280 hp and trim level “N”, and it’s already causing a sensation. In full crossover fashion, the South Korean firm has wanted to continue offering a traditional saloon with dynamic tints to capture the attention of users.
As stated by the firm this model It is capable of reaching 250 km / h of maximum speed And with a maximum torque of 392 Nm it is clear that you will have enough force to stay glued to the seat. In Australia this model is marketed with a six-speed manual transmission or with a dual-clutch transmission with eight.
Aesthetically you can already see that it draws attention with its generous alloy wheels, LED rear lighting with infinite line, lowered suspension, specific front grille, glossy red and black details, side skirts, specific rear diffuser, etc.
Already inside the well-organized dashboard is used, to which specific details are added to enhance sportiness such as the new more enveloping seats, a sporty-cut steering wheel and aluminum pedals. Of course moldings and fabrics are adapted to the “N” finish.
All i30 Sedan N’s come standard with LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane alert, pre-collision warning, blind spot monitor, rear camera, button start, digital instrumentation, navigator, parking sensors, Bose sound system, ventilated and heated seats …
As you can see, it has all the ingredients to like both in Australia and in Europe. The problem is that the subsidiary for the old continent does not believe that sedans make sense today, and that in markets like Poland they keep models like this Elantra in their portfolio but in simple versions. Without a doubt, a shame.
