Hyundai teases the Tucson N Line
The Tucson N Line variant will be an important addition in Hyundai’s expansion of the N Line portfolio
The teaser images clearly portray that the Tucson N Line will be based on Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design language. The front of the fourth-gen Tucson now looks more aggressive and gets a blacked-out grille with sleek and sharp headlamps. There is more black treatment on the roof, A-, B-, and C-pillars and ORVMs. The N Line badging is prominent on the sides and gets hexagonal wheel arches surrounding the dual-tone alloy wheels.
Under the hood, the Tucson N Line’s powertrain details have not yet been revealed officially but speculated rumours suggest that it will also get the same 2.5-litre Smartstream turbocharged GDi engine as the Sonata N Line, which will undoubtedly feature a bump up in power from the regular engine’s output of 187bhp and 247Nm.
As for now, the Hyundai Tucson N line will be available from spring 2021 in the USA and there are no plans of it coming to India anytime soon. In India, Hyundai launched the Tucson in a facelifted version recently and we have driven it for a full detailed review with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
