10 000 Shikime 355 mijë

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra N-Line (CAD $27,799, USD $25,200 (with DCT)) aims to bring cheap fun to the masses and is mostly new. On paper, it has a 1.6L Turbo 4 cylinder putting out 201 HP and 195 Ft-Lb of torque through a 7-speed DCT gearbox. Is it enough to win over Thomas and James as an enthusiast's car? Watch to find out!

    Awesome car, especially for the money, but it is kind of a bummer that you don’t even have the option to add on some of the nicer interior/tech options that come on higher trims.

    Speaking of winter tires and driving in Canada: my old 2008 Civic Si sedan NEVER got stuck in the snow with proper winter tires. That LSD was a lifesaver. Almost as good as AWD.

    How does this car relate to the Kia Proceed GT with a 204HP 1.6 T-GDI and a 7 gear DCT? Are they the same base shared between Hyundai and its daughter company Kia, or completely different contructions?

    This or kia forte gt? Both are kinda in the same price but kia has heated and ventilated seat and also cooler looking steering wheel. But huyndai has heated wheels no heated seats though. Both have the same performance and interior I think kia has a little bit better with bigger touch screen.

    I don't care about luxury, I'm all for simplicity and performance. I like that it has the old fashioned handbreak and gauge cluster. These new car nowadays have too much tech for my liking. This will be my next car in the future for sure. A hatchback version of this car would have also been nice.

    Lol that was one of the best intros I've seen. I've had a basic Corolla SE for awhile (2013) and am about to get a new one - I am not a big car enthusiast I just want a reliable car that's sport...can't decide between Elantra / Corolla / Civi..or something else?

    This engine doesn't NEED to rev out to make gobs of power. It produces 90%+ of it's peak torque between 1750 to 4500 rpm. Above 6000 the power begins to fall off, so there's no point. It's an awesome engine with a huge powerband. Revving it out will not accelerate any quicker.

    The fact that manufacturers are not making manual cars makes me sad. I went shopping for a new car with manual transmission recently and the reaction from dealers was ordinary, most of them made me feel like I was a loser , except Mazda, they had two demos with manual transmission for me to drive and I purchased one of them. The N line trim is a great move on Hyundai’s behalf and I think it’s going to be incredibly successful, however, they need to not eliminate the manual option. Here in Australia, the n line ( in the i30 at least) has “ leather appointed seats”.

    I have a theory that Hyundai's design process consists of designers completing the overall design for a vehicle. Then the clay model is submitted to a committee whose job is to add creases and bulges to the the external design. They're not done until the entire vehicle looks like an origami excercise.
