Hyundai Tucson N Line trim of its best-selling model in Europe revealed. The all-new TUCSON N Line combines the futuristic design, comfort and advanced connectivity of TUCSON with the motorsport-inspired styling and attitude of N Line.
N Line Tucson offers sporty and distinctive exterior design features and differentiating interior details so customers can enjoy a driving experience with even more attitude.
“With the all-new Hyundai TUCSON N Line, we are bringing our popular sporty trim level to the latest generation of our European best-seller,” says Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe. “Our all-new TUCSON N Line features exclusive performance styling and a state-of-the-art powertrain line-up with electrified solutions, to offer even more choice for Hyundai customers.”
For the N Line version, the parametric jewel patterns on the grille pieces have been elaborated with edges, creating additional reflections depending on the angle. The grille also incorporates the N Line badge. Under the grille sits a rectangular shaped bumper and a refined air intake, which is taller and bigger than on the standard TUCSON for a sportier look. The bumper, which is replicated at the rear, works harmoniously with the bright silver skid plates. Meanwhile, striking black bezels frame the head lamps.
At the side, N Line trim is characterised by an energetic-looking side moulding in body colour which offers dynamic proportions and lines to provide a slimmer look. This is complemented by a vibrant daylight opening (DLO) in glossy Black. The DLO terminates in the fast angle of the C-pillar, which generates a race track-inspired feeling of forward motion. Stylish Phantom Black side mirrors further enhance the sleek styling.
To emphasise the car’s sporty appearance at the rear, it is outfitted with an aerodynamic spoiler that is longer than that of the standard model and garnished with fins. The lower rear is accentuated by a red reflector band and a diffusor. Aggressive twin tip muffler exhausts further underline the fact the model’s designers took many cues from the world of high-performance cars.
The all-new TUCSON N Line is equipped with stronger and sportier 19-inch alloy wheels. Continuing the Sensuous Sportiness theme, parametric patterns emphasise their geometric structure. These are supplemented by wheel arches which match the body colour of the car.
Customers can choose from seven exterior colours. For even more personalisation, customers can select an optional two-tone roof in Phantom Black with five colour trims.
The sophisticated and spacious interior features flowing forms inspired by waterfalls. This is accentuated by sporty N Line interior styling and an exclusive colour pack.
All-new TUCSON N Line customers can enjoy N-branded sporty seats with black suede and leather seat coverings, as well as red stitching. 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. 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. Further N Line enhancements include metal pedals, a foot rest and door steps.
Engine and Performance
Engineers at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center (HMETC) created separate optimised ECS parameter settings with specific tuning for versions of the N Line that are equipped with this feature. This provides even more driving fun for N Line customers, matching the model’s sporty look.
As with the standard version, the all-new TUCSON N Line is available with a variety of powertrains for both power and efficiency, which are available with different levels of electrification or without. The N Line trim will be available with all variants of the all-new TUCSON except the low power diesel version.
