2021 Hyundai Tucson N-Line previewed
New Tucson N-Line features sporty styling changes and is expected to cost around £28,000
- N-Line trim borrows styling cues from ‘N’ badged models
- Features sportier styling and additional paint finishes
- Full reveal in early 2021, with sales starting in the spring
The new Hyundai Tucson N-Line has been previewed by the Korean manufacturer. It takes inspiration from the firm’s hot ‘N’ badged models and will get an array of sporty styling upgrades over the standard car.
Hyundai will reveal the new model in early 2021, with sales expected to start by the spring. When it arrives, we expect prices to start from around £28,000, putting it on par with rivals such as the SEAT Ateca FR and Ford Kuga ST-Line.
To set it apart from the rest of the Tucson range, the car’s design has been enhanced with a restyled front bumper featuring larger air intakes and a redesigned rear bumper that incorporates a diffuser. The sides feature additional vents in the front wings, body-coloured side-cladding, and a large set of alloy wheels with a two-tone finish. It’ll also be available in an expanded range of paint finishes.
There’ll be sports seats inside and all of the technology from the standard Tucson including a 10.25-inch digital dial cluster and an integrated infotainment touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also feature, along with safety tech like automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning.
While no powertrains have been confirmed, we expect the Tucson N-Line to be available with the same engine line-up as the standard car. This would mean a choice of petrol and diesel engines, some of which have mild-hybrid technology, and a flagship petrol-hybrid engine that produces 227bhp. A plug-in hybrid Tucson is expected to arrive in late 2021.
