Hyundai wants all its current models to have a sporty look. So it launched a sporty N-Line for almost every model in the range. So, the Tucson was not going to make an exception.
Hyundai Motor has unveiled a sporty N Line trim of its best-selling model in Europe. The all-new TUCSON N Line combines the futuristic design, comfort and advanced connectivity of TUCSON with the motorsport-inspired styling and attitude of N Line.
The all-new TUCSON N Line offers sporty and distinctive exterior design features and differentiating interior details.
The muscular stance of the all-new TUCSON N Line’s exterior design is based on Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design identity, while at the same time offering refined performance-oriented design prompts. As with the standard TUCSON, the N Line trim features prominent geometric patterns known as “parametric jewels”, giving it a powerful and energetic character. In addition, a low and wide stance emphasises its sporty credentials.
At the front, parametric jewels are displayed elaborately on the grille, which sits taller and is wider than on the all-new TUCSON. For the N Line version, the parametric jewel patterns on the grille pieces have been elaborated with edges, creating additional reflections depending on the angle. The grille also incorporates the N Line badge. Under the grille sits a rectangular shaped bumper and a refined air intake, which is taller and bigger than on the standard TUCSON for a sportier look. The bumper, which is replicated at the rear, works harmoniously with the bright silver skid plates. Meanwhile, striking black bezels frame the head lamps.
At the side, the all-new TUCSON N Line is characterised by an energetic-looking side moulding in body colour which offers dynamic proportions and lines to provide a slimmer look. This is complemented by a vibrant daylight opening (DLO) in glossy Black. The DLO terminates in the fast angle of the C-pillar, which generates a race track-inspired feeling of forward motion. Stylish Phantom Black side mirrors further enhance the all-new TUCSON N Line’s sleek styling.
To emphasise the car’s sporty appearance at the rear, the all-new TUCSON N Line is outfitted with an aerodynamic spoiler that is longer than that of the standard model and garnished with fins. The lower rear is accentuated by a red reflector band and a diffusor. Aggressive twin tip muffler exhausts further underline the fact the model’s designers took many cues from the world of high-performance cars.
The all-new TUCSON N Line is equipped with stronger and sportier 19-inch alloy wheels. Continuing the Sensuous Sportiness theme, parametric patterns emphasise their geometric structure. These are supplemented by wheel arches which match the body colour of the car.
All-new TUCSON N Line customers can choose from seven exterior colours. For even more personalisation, customers can select an optional two-tone roof in Phantom Black with five colour trims.
The all-new TUCSON N Line has been developed and tested in Europe. Like the all-new TUCSON, it also will offer an optional Electronically Controlled Suspension (ECS) which provides additional flexibility on the road through adaptive damping technology.
The ECS automatically and continuously controls the vehicle’s suspension to maximise driving comfort and performance. It achieves this by taking into account driving conditions such as speed, road surfaces, cornering, stopping requirements and acceleration. By controlling the damping force on each individual wheel, ECS reduces roll, pitch and vertical motion to enhance ride and handling.
As with the standard version, the all-new TUCSON N Line is available with a variety of powertrains for both power and efficiency, which are available with different levels of electrification or without. The N Line trim will be available with all variants of the all-new TUCSON except the low power diesel version.
