Hyundai Prices 2024 Elantra N

Though this year’s hot Hyundai enters 2024 with meaningful refinements to gear like its engine mounts and suspension bushings, not to mention its fresh new face, the brand has added less than a thousand bucks to its starting price.

In this era of inflation and general profit mongering, that’s not a bad deal. Pedants will enjoy knowing the hike is exactly $835, climbing to $34,850 including destination fees. That’s about smack dab in the middle of the class in which it competes, where the Civic Si trades for just over 30 grand while the Golf GTI and Subie WRX are each within shouting distance of the Elantra N. If you’re curious as to where the (arguably) next-rung cars reside, a GR Corolla is in the $38k-ish bracket.


For yer money, the 2024 Elantra N has numerous ride and handling enhancements including those reinforced engine-mount membranes for reduced vibrations and an alleged improvement in agility. Other bushings are reinforced for better yaw response and steering precision while a rear suspension insulator that goes from rubber to urethane should help damping and yaw response. With this fettling, lines of code have been updated in the suspension software to make the most of these changes.

Elsewhere, new wheels reduce unsprung weight by 33 pounds, no small amount for a car this size. And even though your author was probably one of the few people who didn’t mind last year’s styling decisions, he is most certainly in the minority. This model year brings a face with improved cooling and aero; binning the fish face will be a bonus for some onlookers blessed with the gift of sight. The rear fascia also gets some tweaks.


In case you need a refresher, Hyundai claims the front-wheel drive Elantra N’s 2.0-liter turbo mill was specially developed for N models. It’s available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, delivering an estimated 276 horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque.

    You call that a "fresh new face'? It looks like the kind of front end designed to kill, not maim, so insurance companies don't have to pay for pain and suffering, much less hospital expenses.

    Boom, Hyundai is taking this in all the right directions with the sensible updates based on market feedback.

      That's right Hyundai is on the path to total domination. Elantra N is a budget 911 GT3RS for real.


  • Wjtinfwb Funny. When EV's were bursting onto the scene; Tesla's, Volt's, Leaf's pure EV was all the rage and Hybrids were derided because they still used a gas engine to make them, ahem; usable. Even Volt's were later derided when it was revealed that the Volt's gas engine was actually connected to the wheels, not just a generator. Now, Hybrids are warmly welcomed into the Electric fraternity by virtue of being "electrified". If a change in definition is what it takes, I'm all for it. Hybrid's make so much sense in most American's usage patterns and if needed you can drive one cross-country essentially non-stop. Glad to see Hybrid's getting the love.
  • 3-On-The-Tree We also had a 1973 IH Scout that we rebuilt the engine in and it had dual glass packs, real loud. I miss those days.
  • 3-On-The-Tree Jeff thanks. Back in 1990 we had a 1964 Dodge D100 with a slant six with a 3 on the tree. I taught myself how to drive a standard in that truck. It was my one of many journeys into Mopar land. Had a 1973 Plymouth duster with a slant six and a 1974 Dodge Dart Custom with 318 V8. Great cars and easy to work on.
