There aren’t that many cars in the US that are available with a manual transmission anymore, particularly in the four-door segment. Fortunately, the Hyundai Elantra N is one of them. Hyundai has revealed pricing for the 2022 Elantra N, and it’s officially the least expensive N car that Hyundai offers, with the manual transmission model starting at $32,925.
Anyone wanting the eight-speed dual-clutch will spend $34,425. Neither MSRP includes the $1,025 destination charge, though. Both cars have a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that makes 276 horsepower and 289 lb-ft. of torque. The six-speed manual offers downshift rev-matching, and the dual-clutch automatic has N sport tuning. The car has numerous other performance enhancements, including an integrated drive axle for enhanced handling and an electronic limited-slip differential.
The Elantra N is fitted with 245 mm wide Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires wrapped around 19-inch wheels. The vehicle also has next-generation Electronically Controlled Suspension and body reinforcements to improve handling. Despite the reasonable price, the car is well-equipped and comes packed with a massive list of safety features:
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist w/ Pedestrian Detection (FCA w/ Ped), Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assist (BCA) w/ Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist (RCCA), Parking Distance Warning – Reverse, Lane Following Assist (LFA), and Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), High Beam Assist (HBA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Advanced dual front airbags w/ Occupant Classification System (OCS), Front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, Roof-mounted side-curtain airbags, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS) & Hill Assist Control (HAC).
