Hyundai continue to go from strength-to-strength in the European market by creating a broad range of vehicles to suit every palette and budget. The Tucson has been a popular SUV for some time now, which is reflected in the strong number of sales Hyundai have enjoyed since the latest generation launched a few years ago.

However, in keeping with their 'New thinking, New possibilities' motto, Hyundai are adding a new and very appealing dimension to the Tucson in the form of an 'N Line' package. Hyundai's 'N' division, which stands for 'Namyang' in case you were wondering, invests millions of pounds and man hours in the pursuit of enhanced performance. Crikey! Certainly sounds the business, but we'll elaborate more on that later.

It doesn't stop there; because the Tucson N Line will be available with a 48-volt mild-hybrid (MHEV) powertrain. Keep on reading to discover more about the set-up and how it works.

Perfect Harmony

The hybrid and electric evolution is well underway, there can be no questioning it. However, there is a handful of hybrid technologies to choose from in today's market, which makes it all very confusing.

Hyundai have opted for a mild-hybrid (MHEV) set-up as an option for the N Line. In Queen's English, a 48-volt battery sits within the chassis of the car and assists the traditional diesel engine. It cannot physically propel the car off its own juice, but it will work with the engine to provide optimal efficiency during everyday driving. The South Korean firm say the hybrid technology will reduce emissions and fuel consumption by up to 11%, which is certainly welcome.

Available in three powertrain variants, which feature a 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesel alongside a punchy 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, there are plenty of options for customers to choose from. However, the hybrid technology is only available with the two diesel engines.


The N Line Treatment

Following the success of the i30 N Line, which launched in 2018, Hyundai have expanded the dynamic trim level to the Tucson. The most notable tweaks are the re-calibrated power steering and adjusted suspension settings. The steering itself is set-up to provide a more direct and linear feel, which ultimately provides more feedback and confidence. Furthermore, the suspension has been stiffened to help keep the Tucson flatter and more compliant through the twisty stuff.

These handling tweaks are very welcome, considering both the 2.0-litre diesel and 1.6-litre turbo petrol produce around 180bhp from relatively low down in the rev-range. Four-wheel drive is also available for those who want better grip on a variety of road surfaces. In theory then, this is one SUV that should have no issue getting a shift on.


Appearance matters

Hyundai have been busy ensuring the Tucson N Line looks and feels every bit as good as it drives. Redesigned bumpers and a dark mesh-pattern grille framed by smoked chrome give a lasting impression of presence. The exterior makeover is complemented by dark 19" alloy wheels, while a gloss black rear spoiler emphasizes the SUV's sporty nature.

The headlights boast a black-bezel that incorporate daytime running lights and LED design to give a meaner look. To finish off the exterior enhancements, the window frames and door handles have been darkened.

Inside the car, owners will enjoy 'N' branded leather-suede sports seats and steering wheel, both of which have been finished with red accent stitching. The little details matter; that's why the interior of the Tucson N Line boasts alloy pedals and a red-accented 'N' gear shift lever.


If the Tucson N Line isn't quite your flavour, then we have a range of offers on other Hyundai's that may be more up your street.
