Hyundai has announced the New Tucson N Line for the European market.The Tucson N Line comes with plenty of new exterior features and a bunch of comfort and safety equipment. The N Line by Hyundai first came up with the i30 last year to mark the Korean marque’s dynamic trim level.
In looks, the N Line Tucson comes with redesigned bumpers and a dark mesh-pattern grille framed by dark chrome. This gives a bold first impression. Furthermore, dark 19” alloy wheels as well as side mirror housings and a rear spoiler in glossy black emphasize the car’s sporting attitude. Then, there are the Black-bezel headlights, daytime running lights and darkened window frames in combination with body-colored door handles.
Moving inside, the Tucson N Line has N-branded leather-suede sport seats and red accent stitching on the steering wheel and seats. Alloy pedals and the leather-wrapped, red-accented N gear shift lever are also part of the N Line enhancements.
For driving dynamics, the Tucson N Line is equipped with MDPS (motor driven power steering) and adjusted suspension settings for a sporty drive. The suspension settings on the top Tucson N Line trims offer 5% greater rigidity in the rear setup and 8% more in the front, while software changes in the steering give a slightly more direct, linear feel at the wheel.
Hyundai Tucson N Line engine options
The Hyundai Tucson N Line comes in three powertrain options, and in both two- and four-wheel drives. In addition to the 2.0-liter CRDi diesel engine introduced in the 2018 Tucson, Hyundai has now combined its efficient and responsive 48V mild hybrid technology with the 100 kW/136-PS 1.6-liter CRDi diesel engine. The purpose of the smaller capacity engine is to reduce fuel consumption, without compromising driving fun. Two other engines are the136 kW/185 PS, 2.0-liter CRDi with 48V mild hybrid engine (most powerful in the range) and 130 kW/177-PS 1.6l T-GDI petrol.
The Hyundai Tucson N Line is designed, tested and built in Europe and it is available across Europe in nine different body paint options.
