Full specifications for the new range-topping Hyundai Tucson N Line model have been revealed. The new trim level gives the bold Tucson a sporty makeover based on the brand’s ‘N’ badged performance models. It’s available to order now, with prices starting from £31,110.

Best medium size and family SUVs

With racy-looking SUVs proving popular, the Tucson N Line will compete directly against models like the SEAT Ateca FR, Ford Kuga ST-Line and Kia Sportage GT Line. The new trim will be available in two versions: an entry-level N Line model and in enhanced N Line S specification.

2021 Hyundai Tucson N Line: design

The Tucson N Line trim gets several styling tweaks over the standard car, including a redesigned front bumper with deeper front air intakes, a rear diffuser with two chromed exhaust pipes and intricate 19-inch bi-colour alloy wheels. Other cosmetic additions include a redesigned front grille and a new rear spoiler.

A black exterior pack and exclusive Shadow Grey paint also mark the N Line out from the rest of the range, and you can specify a contrasting black roof too.

Interior, technology and pricing

The N Line range starts from £31,110 and comes with leather and suede sports seats, plus red stitching, aluminium pedals and black headlining. As you’d expect, there are N Line badges scattered around - you’ll find them on the seats, gear stick, steering wheel and tread plates.

Like the rest of the standard range, technology includes a 10.25-inch digital dial cluster and an integrated infotainment touchscreen measuring the same size. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also feature along with unique N Line graphics for both display screens. Buyers also get climate control and heated front and rear seats as standard.

Opting for the Tucson N Line S costs from £32,810, and expands the standard equipment adding a heated steering wheel, three-zone climate control, an electric panoramic sunroof and a premium Krell stereo system with eight speakers. It also gets more safety features as well, with a blind spot warning system and rear cross traffic alert.

Engines and performance

The Tucson N-Line is available with the same engine choices as the standard car. All use the same 1.6-litre petrol engine with varying degrees of electrification.

The entry-level features a standard 1.6-litre petrol and is only available with Hyundai’s ‘intelligent’ manual gearbox. In this guise, it produces 148bhp and is capable of 0-62mph in 10.3 seconds and a top speed of 117mph.

Above this, a mild-hybrid version is offered in two power outputs with a seven-speed automatic gearbox. The front-wheel drive version produces 148bhp, cutting the 0-62mph time to 9.6 seconds. Opting for the four-wheel drive model increases power to 178bhp and 0-62mph takes 9.0 seconds.

The Tucson’s hybrid powertrain will also be available in N Line spec after launch, combining a 1.6-litre petrol engine, an electric motor and a small battery to produce 227bhp. This powertrain is capable of pure-electric running over short distances and comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox.

A plug-in hybrid model will also be added to the line-up later this year plug-in hybrid, with 261bhp and a much bigger battery, meaning you can travel around 31 miles on electric power alone.
