Hyundai Tucson N SUV is coming with 340bhp

The Hyundai Tucson N is the first performance SUV from the company and will rival the Audi SQ5, VW-T-Roc R and Cupra Ateca

Hyundai Tucson N render

Hyundai’s performance-orientated N Division will continue to expand, with the Korean manufacturer all but confirming plans for a range-topping Tucson N model. It will arrive in the next two years when the current generation Tucson is replaced.

As you can see in our exclusive render, the Hyundai Tucson N will be a direct rival for the current crop of performance SUVs, including the Audi SQ5, Cupra Ateca and the upcoming Volkswagen T-Roc R.

The Korean manufacturer is already rumoured to have built a development version of the Tucson N fitted with four-wheel drive and a gearbox based on the one found in the i30 N hatchback. While Hyundai is remaining silent on potential performance figures, we expect the Tucson N to match its rivals; expect at least 340bhp, four-wheel drive and a 0-62mph time of under six seconds.

The new performance SUV will become the flagship model for the Hyundai N Division, and is an important part of the firm’s plan to emulate rival performance brands such as Cupra and Mercedes-AMG.

Little else is currently known about the Tucson N, but we would expect it to receive a number of upgraded components over the standard version, including full N Division styling for the exterior and interior, larger alloy wheels and a sportier chassis.
