    Detroit 2019: 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line

      This is as close as we'll get to an i30 N

    It has been talked about for quite sometime, but Hyundai is making it official today at the Detroit Auto Show. The Korean automaker introduced their first N-Line model, the 2019 Elantra GT N-Line.

    N-Line brings forth a number of the exterior design cues and changes to suspension found on the standard N models to the basic models. For the Elantra GT, N-Line will be taking the place of the Sport.

    For the exterior, the N-Line brings a unique front grille, lower front spoiler, blacked-out side mirrors, and 18-inch N-Line wheels. Step inside to find a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather sport seats with the ’N’ logo, updated instrument cluster, and red accents to help differentiate this model from the standard Elantra GT.

    Under the skin, Hyundai has given the Elantra GT N-Line’s suspension the once-over with stiffer springs, new engine mounts, thicker stability bars, and a set of Michelin PS4 summer tires if you get the six-speed manual. The seven-speed DCT sticks with a set of all-season Hankooks. Hyundai is retaining the turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder with 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet.

    Pricing for the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line will begin at $24,185 for the manual and $25,285 for the DCT. Prices include an $885 destination charge. You can go to your nearest Hyundai dealer now to check them out.

    Hyundai Debuts First U.S. ‘N Line’ Model with 2019 Elantra GT Lineup

    • N Line is an exciting new trim level in the Hyundai ‘N’ product portfolio
    • N Line focuses on sporty design cues and refined powertrain/chassis dynamics

    FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 14, 2019 - Complementing the performance of Elantra GT is the announcement of the new 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line trim. Elantra GT N Line is the first N Line model for the United States from Hyundai. N Line trims add sporty design elements and refined powertrain/chassis upgrades to existing Hyundai products. N Line is part of Hyundai’s ‘N’ product portfolio that includes the brand’s growing ultimate ‘N’ range of vehicles (Veloster N, i30 N, i30 Fastback N). The 2019 Elantra GT N Line replaces the 2018 Elantra GT Sport and signals more N Line models to come on future Hyundai products. Elantra GT N Line and the 2019 Elantra GT are on sale now.

    The 2019 Elantra GT continues to bring increased utility and enhanced driving dynamics to the compact hatchback segment. Elantra GT and the new N Line trim are poised to compete head-on with hatchback competitors and provide a fun-to-drive alternative to small CUVs. Elantra GT is the best of both worlds.  

    2019 Elantra GT Changes

    • New Elantra GT N Line added to the lineup
    • Elantra GT Sport is dropped from the lineup (replaced by the Elantra GT N Line)
    • The entry-level Elantra GT is a carryover model  
    • Panoramic sunroof and leather seating surfaces added to 2019 Elantra GT Style Package

    “Hyundai N models satisfy the needs of performance-oriented enthusiasts with exclusive, custom-tuned powertrain and chassis applications,” said Thomas Schemera, executive vice president, Hyundai Motor Group’s Product Planning & Strategy Division.” “N Line is designed for those buyers craving N’s sporty styling cues coupled with performance-tuned suspension upgrades, all at compelling price points.”

    Design Elements
    The Elantra GT N Line takes eye-catching design elements directly from the i30 N. At the front, the Elantra GT N Line has a lower front spoiler for increased aerodynamic efficiency and a unique N Line version of Hyundai’s Cascading Grille with a distinctive silver character line. At the side, blacked out side mirrors with turn signals, N Line badging, N Line 18-inch wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 225/40 R18 summer tires change the profile of the car (summer tires are only available with the manual transmission). At the rear, the unique bumper fascia further accentuates the N theme. 
    Standard interior trim for the Elantra GT N Line includes:

    • Unique leather-wrapped perforated N steering wheel with metallic spokes
    • N Line leather sport seats with N logo
    • N Line gearshift features sporty metal accents and leather inserts
    • A sporty instrument cluster and instrument panel accents
    • Red stitching and accents differentiate the N Line from the standard Elantra GT

    N Line Sport Seats
    The N Line sports seats feature heated leather seating surfaces, N logos and red contrast stitching and side bolsters. They also keep the driver comfortable with power lumbar support and extendable seat cushions. 

    Elantra GT N Line mechanical improvements include:


    As with the exterior and interior, the driving experience has been further enhanced for N Line duty with new suspension and steering tuning, revised powertrain mounts and summer tires. Additionally, Elantra GT N Line’s multi-link independent rear suspension with larger front and rear brake rotors improves noise, vibration harshness and driving performance. 

    The Elantra GT N Line includes a 1.6-liter turbocharged-GDI engine with six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed DCT with larger steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. This drivetrain produces 201 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. torque to meet performance and fuel efficiency needs. 

    Advanced safety features contributed to a Top Safety Pick by IIHS for the 2019 Elantra GT. The following SmartSense features are available on the Elantra GT N Line models:

    • Smart Cruise Control with start/stop capability 
    • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist
    • High Beam Assist
    • Lane Keep Assist
    • Driver Attention Warning 

    Available on the 2019 Elantra N Line is Hyundai’s AVN 5.0 infotainment system. This system features a fast processor for greater responsiveness, as well as an eight-inch screen. Using presets with AVN 5.0 is a snap because AM, FM and SiriusXM channels are combined on one screen. AVN 5.0 also includes HERE HD Traffic (without a subscription), bird’s eye view in Navigation maps and drivers get traffic flow and incident data without ever paying for a subscription via HD Radio.

    The Elantra GT N Line offers a technology package including the aforementioned feature as well as:

    • Panoramic sunroof
    • Eight-inch Navigation system (AVN 5.0)
    • Blue Link Connected Car System

    Kind of a boring car, but I am glad they offer a turbo in there.  It is nice that if you are looking for a small car and don't have a big budget you can get something with some power and don't just have to pick from a collection of 160-170 hp NA 4-bangers.

    Sounds like a Subway route. 

    "Take the B-Line to Clarke Station. Get off, make the transfer to the McGill terminal and find the  N-Line and from there, you should be able to get to the zoo."
