Hyundai Teases Upcoming N Performance Brand with Mean Sounding Hot Hatch

1

Hyundai is hyping up the debut of the first car under its dedicated N performance brand.

The Korean automaker has released a video showing a camouflaged hot hatch ripping through some twisties while undergoing handling evaluations. After a lot of footage of tire screeching and a mean sounding exhaust, we can see the driver manually shifting gears and using a third pedal, which is great news for enthusiasts — N cars will come with manual transmissions!

The hot hatch being flogged in the video above looks a lot like a heavily modified version of the front-wheel-drive Elantra GT, but we can see a unique grille and some aggressive design elements. When the production car finally debuts, we can expect it to have more than 200 horsepower, selectable driving modes, and a whole host of performance-enhancing goodies.
