Turbocharged Hyundai Elantra Sport Debuts with 201 HP

The Hyundai Elantra Sport has been introduced in South Korea.

Expected to arrive in the U.S. by the end of this year, the Hyundai Elantra Sport is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque and will likely land stateside with the same specifications. Separating itself from a standard Elantra, the Sport model features more aggressive styling with a redesigned front bumper equipped with larger air intakes, a Turbo badge on the grille, horizontal LED daytime running lights, HID headlights, larger side skirts, redesigned rear bumper with diffuser, chrome exhaust tips and different signature LED tail lights.

On all four corners are unique 18-inch wheels paired to 225/40/18 tires and available as an option is an Extreme Package that adds a rear spoiler, different 18-inch wheels and other performance parts.

The interior of the Hyundai Elantra Sport comes equipped with sportier seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, faux carbon fiber, and red accents throughout. The model can be had with either a six-speed manual transmission or a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic. The Korean automaker claims it will go 62 mph from a standstill in eight seconds.

Expect to see a debut at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this November.
