Hyundai Is On An N And N Line Performance Product Offensive

Hyundai is not wasting any time: They are N-ing all the things and it will pay off


  • In barely more than two years, Hyundai will have launched seven “N” vehicle.

  • Just introduced: 2022 Tucson N Line.

  • Next: Elantra N.


It’s no secret that many consumers prefer top-line and performance variants of common cars – let’s call it the GTI effect. With this very real, and increasingly common approach with many carmakers, Hyundai is jumping on the opportunity and has, and will, introduce seven N and N Line performance vehicles in just over two years.

The collection of new N brand performance models will, and this is important if we’re to guess what others are coming, “include variants in each major vehicle category” according to Hyundai’s press release.

So far, we have the Veloster N, the 2.5-litre turbocharged Sonata N Line, and the Elantra N Line. Just now, Hyundai released a few teaser images of the Tucson N Line and has confirmed that the next in line will be a full-fat Elantra N.

Now, as for the remaining two vehicles, one will be a full N vehicle while the other will be an N Line. Hyundai has said that we can expect three purist N models and four N Line models. The only remaining major categories are from the SUV categories. Because of this, we are quite convinced that one of the final two will be a Santa Fe N, which has already been previewed in South Korea. If we were to bet on the last new N model, we’d say Kona.
