If you’re a Hyundai or sports car enthusiast, you’ve probably heard about the N Division by now. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster N was the first model coming from the lineup, but there’s a second you might not have realized is available. The Elantra GT Sport trim level is gone for the 2019 model year, replaced instead by the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N Line.

“Hyundai N models satisfy the needs of performance-oriented enthusiasts with exclusive, custom-tuned powertrain and chassis applications. N Line is designed for those buyers craving N’s sporty styling cues coupled with performance-tuned suspension upgrades, all at compelling price points.”
– Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President of Product Planning & Strategy Division, Hyundai Motor Group
What sets the Elantra GT N Line apart?
When it comes to design, the N Line has its own design cues separate from other Elantra GT trims and borrowed right from the i30 N found in other markets. It features a lower spoiler, a unique grille, blacked out side mirrors with embedded turn signals, 18” wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport R-speed tires, a unique rear bumper, a leather-wrapped, perforated steering wheel with metallic spokes, leather sport seats, metal accents and leather inserts on the gearshift, red stitching and accents throughout the interior and, of course, plenty of N Line badging inside and out.
When it comes to technology and features, the GT N Line is packed with Hyundai Smart Sense safety features like Smart Cruise Control with start/stop, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, High Beam Assist, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Attention Warning. You can also opt for an available technology package which includes a whole host of great features – including an AVN 5.0 infotainment system.
