N line hands down
I researched last night and nothing the N line had Was better than the limited except arguably the engine. More horsepower but worse fuel economy. I had a 2021 SEL that was totaled and never felt the need for more power and was happy with the fuel mileage so I don’t think the extra money justifies the engine for me, much less losing other options. Just trying to see if I missed anything else.

I have an 22 N-Line manual and drive many highway miles. 65-75 MPH and full tank of highway miles and I average 37MPG, (real calculations, dash shows 42-44). Bring that speed down to speed limit and I hit 40.5MPG, again real calculations, not dashboard. Full tank of city driving is about 26-28, but that's because you gotta have some fun with that little turbo, right?
So I guess it comes down to looks and features.

Guess it depends on what you want out of the car. I just got a '23 Limited Hybrid. I wanted ventilated seats and gas mileage. Starting it with blue link to cool those seats down when it's 95 outside in August and getting 50mpg+ on the way home will be nice. I personally like the look of it, too. Definitely not hot off the line, but I do like the way it drives. It does have a sport mode which was surprisingly punchy, but still nothing brag about.

The Hybrid does have 195 lb-ft of torque. You can get a petty good scoot off the line. But, the general 139hp is noticeable on the highway when you want to pass somebody. I do miss my 2011 Fusion and the 240hp V6 as far as that, but don't miss the dismal gas mileage.

The dual clutch transmission is desirable but aren’t there current reported issues with it ?
The N-line has the dry 7 speed and there's no recalls with those. The wet 8 speeds has a recall. The 7 speed ecotech or aka the ecosh*t transmissions are kinda meh and desperately needs a TCU tune. The wet ones I hear are so good on the stock tune

The N-line hands down especially if you want to throw aftermarket parts at it one day. I got 43 mpg out of mines until I changed tires and now can never reach that high but hey I was happier having better tires anyways.

Sadly the manual was discontinued.

the big difference is irs. makes a noticeable difference in handling. and one doesn't have to be at speed to feel the difference.

Well I appreciate everyone’s thoughts. But as a 40 year old guy I went with the limited. Brought it home tonight. Guess I’m old fashioned but if I wanted a sports car I’d buy myself a sports car. I thought the limited had more than enough power leaving a stop light and on the interstate on the way home. I was much more interested in having the safety features and other options that the N line didn’t come with.

Understandable. Tbh I would have went with the n for both performance and features tho gas mileage suffers

The N loses a lot of features that the Linited has. If it was the same I would have gotten it. And I guess it’s because I remove the compact cars from the 90s that really has no power, I just don’t understand everyone saying the base engine is doggie. Maybe compared to the N, but it seems as peppy as can be. Since I bought a car primarily for fuel mileage (daily driver for work), I just can’t get over losing even 5-6 mpg. Over 200,000 miles that’sa lot. I guess I’m hitting that boomer age lol.

I assume "irs" means Independent Rear Suspension. Both the N Line and the Limited have Independent rear suspension according to the specs listed on the Hyundai site.

Only the Hybrid (Blue and Limited, to make room for the battery), N-Line, and N have the independent rear suspension as far as I remember. I think the standard S, SEL, and Limited have the beam rear suspension.

My error--I posted about the Sonata--not the Elantra.

Here is the data for the Elantra:

yah, i think that is error. that same posting on the hyundai site says it has a dct. then, when you go into build, it says it has the ivt, which i think is correct. we really dont care, beam or irs, because we wanted the ventilated seats. however, we also had a 2020 sonata limited, which also has irs, and i could easily tell the elantra handled much better than the sonata. and way better than our 2016 elantras. i was a bit surprised when i looked under there, and saw the irs, because i thought they all had beam. also, the site said the elantra had passenger side height adjustable seat, which we also wanted. it dont. i was on the phone with a cust rep after we got our car, and after some heated discussion, he finally looked, and agreed with me.
