Will rival the Honda Civic Si.

Hyundai introduced the sixth generation 2016 Hyundai Elantra last year and is now preparing to up the game with a performance variant of the same. Later this year, the company will launch a performance variant of the car called Hyundai Elantra Sport (name unconfirmed). A spyshot of a test mule has surfaced over the web showing details.

The Hyundai Elantra Sport will likely sport a 1.6-litre petrol engine.

The test mule shows that the performance variant features larger air vents and LED daytime running lights over them. Other exterior features will likely include tweaked headlight cluster, front splitter, special alloy wheels, sporty side skirts, twin chrome tailpipe and rear spoiler. Inside, the Hyundai Elantra Sport may get special upholstery with contrasting accents and a few such other visual addons.

The Sport variant won’t be a full-blown performance machine, but some tweaks with the suspension, brakes and other parts to improve the driving dynamics. Under the hood, reports say, there will be the 1.6-litre T-GDI petrol engine from the Hyundai Veloster Turbo that makes 201 hp and 265 Nm of torque. This engine could be tuned to produce a little more power. The engine would be mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox.
