    Hyundai N Division To Add N Sport Models

    Fills in the gap between the standard and N models

    Hyundai is already selling the i30 N in Europe and has introduced the Veloster N for North America. What's next for Hyundai's sub-performance brand. Speaking with Car and Driver, Hyundai’s head of high-performance development Albert Biermann revealed that next up are models known as N Sport. This will slot between the mainstream and N models that will offer tuning “for a more sporty driving experience.” The changes will also include visual changes inside and out, along with “a different tire than what’s in the normal range.”

    Biermann also revealed that N Sport could appear on any Hyundai model, regardless whether or not they have an N model.

    Along with the N Sport models, N is planning a range of as yet unspecified accessories and more involvement in motorsports - something we may hear more about at the Chicago Auto Show later this week.

    But is N planning any more N-ifed models? Biermann wouldn't say if there are any plans.

    “First, we have to see how the marketplace reacts,” he said.

    I wonder if they plan on keeping the Sport line. Right now, at least with the Sonata, it goes Sport, then limited. So, Sport, Limited, N Sport, N. 

    Sort of like the Audi S Line. Some appearance cues from the S, without the go of the S.
