Hyundai announces Tucson N Line

Hyundai announces Tucson N Line

November 10, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

In September, the presentation of the fourth generation Hyundai Tucson took place. The car has changed significantly in comparison with its predecessor and received new equipment, but soon the “charged” version of the N Line will appear for the first time in the model line.

So far, the South Korean company has published only a few half-shaded teaser photos of the “charged” newest car. The standard Tucson itself looks very menacing and aggressive, so the designers did not have much room for imagination. At the front, there is a new bumper and an enlarged lower air intake.

The rear bumper has also undergone some changes. The gray-painted diffuser has become wider, the turn signals have received a different design (they are removed from the lamp unit and installed significantly lower). But in terms of the exhaust system, you can’t say that this is an N Line: the same two pipes are provided here as in the usual Tucson.

The Koreans are not yet talking about the technical component. The Tucson N Line will likely take over the powertrain from the Sonata N Line. Recall, it uses a fresh 2.5-liter turbo engine that produces 294 hp. power and 422 Nm of torque.

A regular Tucson can have engines ranging from 115 to 180 hp. A couple of hybrid variants have also been announced. In the first case, the 1.6 T-GDI is combined with a 60-horsepower electric motor and a 1.49 kWh lithium-ion battery. The total output is 230 hp. The car is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission, front or full drive. A plug-in hybrid with 265 hp will appear later.

In addition to the unique N Line options, the Dynamic package includes LED headlights and lights, a navigation system with an 8-inch touchscreen, a keyless entry system and an engine start button, an electric tailgate opening, an electronic parking brake, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat in 10 directions, dual-zone climate control, heated steering wheel, front and rear seats and a wireless charger. The top-end High-Tech equipment, in addition to all of the above, includes a panoramic roof with a sunroof, an 8-way electric front passenger seat, and a Smart SenseTM active safety package.
