You didn’t think Hyundai was limiting its N Line range to a hot hatch and a fastback, did you?
The Korean car manufacturer has just announced that the latest vehicle in its stable to undergo an N Line transformation is the Tucson—a crossover. This means the vehicle is now inside the company’s N stable, next to the i30N launched in 2018.
You get a couple of choices underneath the hood, including the 2.0-liter CRDi introduced to the Tucson last year,
Looks-wise, the N Line bits include a redesigned front bumper, as well as a new grille featuring a dark mesh pattern with dark chrome accents. Headlights get black bezels and unique DRL designs, and the 19-inch alloys, rear spoiler, and side-mirror housings now come in glossy black. Inside, the crossover gets N-branded leather-suede sports seats, some red accents on the steering wheel and the shift knob, plus alloy pedals.
Hyundai says the Tucson N Line combines a sense of sportiness with the nameplate’s family-friendly sensibilities. Fancy it? If yes, too bad. It’s only available in Europe—at least for now. At least you have the photos below to drool over.
