The Tucson is Hyundai's most popular model in Europe.
The Tucson N Line will combine the futuristic design, comfort and advanced connectivity of regular Tucson with the motorsport-inspired styling and attitude of N Line.
Like the standard model, the new Tucson N Line shouts progressive design, integrating sharp lines, angles and shapes, as well as the SUV's new signature parametric jewel patterns.
The new Tucson N Line's muscular stance is based on Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design identity, while at the same time offering refined performance-oriented design prompts.
The N Line trim features prominent geometric patterns known as “parametric jewels”, giving it a powerful and energetic character.
In addition, the N Line gets a low and wide stance to emphasise its sporty credentials.
At the front, parametric jewels are displayed elaborately on the grille, which sits taller and is wider than on the standard Tucson's.
The grille also incorporates the N Line badge while a rectangular shaped bumper and a refined air intake under the grille, is taller and bigger than on the standard Tucson.
The bumper, which is replicated at the rear, works seamlessly with the bright silver skid plates while the headlamps get striking black bezels.
Meanwhile, energetic-looking side moulding in body colour offer dynamic proportions and lines to provide a slimmer look.
At the rear, an aerodynamic spoiler that is longer than that of the standard model is garnished with fins.
The lower rear is accentuated by a red reflector band and a diffusor with aggressive twin tip muffler exhausts that adopted many cues from the world of high-performance cars.
Inside, red stitching is also woven on the door trim and armrest, while the grey cloth crash pad is garnished with red accents.
A dedicated N steering wheel arrives complete with an N logo while other N design elements are to be found on the leather gear shift knob or shift by wire console cover, depending on the chosen transmission.
Meanwhile, a black headliner gives the interior an extra sporty touch.
Like the standard Tucson, the N Line can be equipped with an optional Electronically Controlled Suspension (ECS) which provides additional flexibility on the road through adaptive damping technology.
Each powertrain is based on the Hyundai Smartstream engine for maximum efficiency: a four-cylinder 1.6-litre T-GDI gasoline engine.
*1.6 T-GDI 48V Mild Hybrid (180PS or 150PS)
*1.6 T-GDI (150PS)
*1.6 T-GDI Plug-in Hybrid (265PS)
*1.6 T-GDI Hybrid (230PS)
The Tucson N Line will be available in Europe from spring with hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants to roll out from summer.
