Hyundai revealed a handful of images of the refreshed Elantra N at the Shanghai Motor Show on Tuesday, giving us our first look at the newest version of our favorite affordable sport sedan.

Most of the car actually looks the same, save for the front fascia. Hyundai designers must've heard people's complaints, because it's been overhauled into a much sleeker, streamlined look. There's a central light bar that connects the two headlights, which have each gained a sharper, angrier design. Other updates we can spot include black badges and a set of new wheels.

The Korean carmaker has yet to release any additional details on the refreshed Elantra N, though we expect the firecracker 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four to return, paired with either a six-speed manual or a eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. The outgoing car produced 276 hp and 289 lb-ft of torque, and it's unclear at this time if this new car will get a bump in performance.

The refreshed Elantra N isn't the only N car we're expecting from Hyundai this year. The all-electric Ioniq 5 N is expected to debut this summer, and we've already driven a prototype version.
