  • The New Tucson is Hyundai‘s first SUV with the sporty N Line trim available with three powertrains ranging from 136 PS to 185 PS 
  • More than a new look: N Line exterior and interior design features complemented by suspension and steering updates 
  • Efficient and responsive 48V mild hybrid technology is now also offered with 1.6-litre CRDi engine, joining Tucson 2.0-litre CRDi 48V mild hybrid  

With the New Tucson N Line, Hyundai Motor offers European customers a growing range of attractive N Line choices – and its first SUV with the sporty N Line look and feel. The new model combines the iconic strength, safety and comfort of Tucson with the dynamic styling and attitude of N Line.  

After successfully launching N Line in 2018 with i30, Hyundai is expanding its dynamic trim level: “With the New Tucson N Line, Hyundai now provides the sporty feeling to customers who also want the versatility and comfort of an SUV,” says Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe. “Tucson is our best-selling model in Europe, and it is positioned right at the heart of our brand, so we are excited to introduce the N Line character to our customers in this segment.”  

Available in three powertrain variants and in both 2WD and 4WD, the New Tucson N Line provides consumers with a family-friendly vehicle that suits their daily driving needs. 

In addition to the 2.0-litre CRDi 48V diesel engine introduced in the New Tucson in 2018, Hyundai has now combined its efficient and responsive 48V mild hybrid technology with the 100 kW/136-PS 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine, offering reduced fuel consumption up to 11% (NEDC 2.0) 

The mild hybrid powertrain contributes to Hyundai’s global efforts to improve fuel efficiency. The technology comprises a 0.44 kW/h 48-Volt lithium-ion polymer battery, a Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG), an LDC converter (Low Voltage DC/DC) and an inverter. With this 48V technology, Hyundai reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on New Tucson by up to 11 per cent. 

 More than a new look: N Line sporty feel with updated suspension and steering   

Tucson N Line is a unique combination of a family SUV and N-inspired sportiness. The new trim features exterior and interior elements inspired by N, Hyundai’s high-performance range. The dynamic design features are complemented on the turbocharged petrol model and the most reliable diesel model by refined MDPS (motor-driven power steering) and adjusted suspension settings so customers can experience a more sporting drive. Suspension springs on these 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.  

Redesigned bumpers and a dark mesh-pattern grille framed by dark chrome provide a strong first impression. Furthermore, dark 19” alloy wheels, as well as side mirror housings and a rear spoiler in glossy black, emphasising the car’s sporting attitude. Black-bezel headlamps, unique daytime running lights and LED design and darkened window frames in combination with body-coloured door handles also create a more dynamic look for the Tucson N Line. 

Inside the car, consumers can enjoy 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.  

The New Tucson N Line is designed, tested and built in Europe and it is available across Europe in nine different body paint options.
