With more power, a stiffer ride and slightly more aggressive looks, the Elantra Sport makes a solid case for itself.
Hyundai imagines the Elantra Sport will comprise 10 percent of total Elantra sales.
This isn't just an aesthetic update.
Under the hood lies a 201-horsepower, 195-pound-foot I4 engine, mated to the buyer's choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch.
The Elantra Sport also features a multi-link rear suspension, where the "normal" Elantra makes do with a torsion bar setup.
The muffler is different, spring and damper rates are up and the front brakes are larger.
Despite the additional power, there's no torque steer to be found.
Even with the sportier suspension, the Elantra Sport is still a comfortable ride on the road.
The Elantra Sport starts at $21,650.
That price goes up to $22,750 if you're interested in the dual-clutch.
