The Sonata N-Line is set to join the Elantra N-Line and the Veloster N in Hyundai’s performance-oriented lineup. N-Line is the automaker’s go-fast division, which has recently began adding performance visual tweaks to Hyundai’s lineup, much like BMW’s M Sport.
The Sonata N-Line adds quad exhausts, extra front air intakes, standard 19-inch wheels, trim-specific side-skirts and rear diffuser, and black trim on the lower part of the bumpers. Inside, there are touches of red trim, dark chrome accents, and sport seats to round out the performance-oriented design. N-Line badging also makes its way all across the car. All of it provide the Sonata a much more aggressive look as intended.
According to Hyundai, the Sonata N-Line would have a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine outputting at least 290 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. It can only be purchased in a 8 speed automatic variant. The N-Line will also ride 0.2 inch lower than other Sonatas and has trim-specific dampers, springs, and anti-roll bars and larger brakes.
