Hyundai Tucson N Line revealed: Prices, specs and options
- Looks inspired by Hyundai's high performance N division
- Priced from £28,500
- On sale from Spring 2021, with hybrids arriving in the Summer
Hyundai's N division is one of the busiest at the firm, with a slew of new releases in recent years. And now it has turned its attention to the new 2021 Hyundai Tuscon. Although this isn't the full high performance N treatment enjoyed by the likes of i30N, it does add the distinctive styling that's fats becoming the N division's trademark.
In practice, that means a set of 19-inch alloy wheels, a new front splitter, a lower rear diffuser and a twin-exit exhaust system. You'll also get a new slightly larger tailgate spoiler, different radiator grille and 'Shadow Grey' paint finish, which you can opt to pair with a black roof for a more dramatic look.
New Hyundai Tucson N Line interior and equipment
It's inside where the Tucson N Line touches are more visible. There's N Line sports seats, upholstered in black suede and leather, an N-branded steering wheel, a new gear knob and black headlining. Aluminium pedals and unique treadplates complete the look.
Infotainment in the new Hyundai Tucson N Line comes in the shape of Hyundai’s new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch infotainment system. These have been updated to add N Line graphics for a distinctive feel. You also get three-zone climate control as standard, with heated front and rear seats - a popular Tucson feature. Further specification for the UK will be announced before the car goes on sale in the Spring.
Top speed and performance for the new Hyundai Tucson N Line
Under the bonnet, there's a choice of four power outputs, all of which are based on Hyundai’s turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. The starting point is the 148PS version with a six-speed manual gearbox. The mid-range models have either 148PS or 178PS and, crucially, are combined with Hyundai's 48-Volt mild hybrid system. That's a system that recaptures otherwise wasted energy and delivers it under to heavy acceleration to bring fuel consumption down.
There's also the option of a full 'proper' Tucson N Line hybrid. This is the same 1.6-litre petrol engine, but paired with a 59bhp electric motor and 1.49kWh battery. The combined power is 227bhp and 350Nm of torque. It comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox as standard.
How much will the new Hyundai Tucson N Line cost?
The new Hyundai Tucson N Line will start from around £28,500 for the entry level power output.
Three stand-out features of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson N Line
Distinctive 19-inch alloys
These alloys are unique to the Tucson N Line, giving it an unmistakable look.
Strong front-end look
The Hyundai Tucson has running lights that are unlike anything else on the road and, with a different grille and front-end treatment, they are accentuated even more on the 2021 Tucson N Line.
Hyundai has done away with a traditional gear lever, instead you can engage park, neutral, drive or reverse at the push of the button. Look closely and you'll see that the N Line branding too.
