Hyundai Tucson N-Line And Full-Fat Tucson N Are Planned

Hyundai seems to have huge plans for the all-new Tucson, including big power


  • Tucson N-Line would get 230 horsepower while the N could have up to 290 horsepower.

  • All-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson to be introduced on Monday, September 14th.

  • The new Tucson will share only its name with the previous SUV, or nearly.


The stakes are always huge in the compact SUV segment and it looks as though Hyundai wants to make an enormous splash with its all-new 2022 Tucson. Not only is the exterior design, based on teaser images and spy-shots, a complete departure from the current model but there are reports that Hyundai will up the ante power-wise.

As noted, we’ll find out more about the new Tucson next Monday but in the meantime, it appears as though unconfirmed details about powertrains have leaked on the web. According to Motor1.com, the new Tucson will be powered by a non-hybrid 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine. The 1.6T is a common engine in Hyundai and Kia’s portfolio so odds are strong that we will get it.

The real news comes from the possibility of Hyundai introducing an N-Line version that would mate a hybrid system to the 1.6-litre. Output is said to be of 230 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The kicker would a full-fat Tucson N that could be powered by the Group’s turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that would be good for up to 290 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque.

The market is ripe for various powertrain options, from full petrol to electrified and the proposed options for the new Tucson would put it on par and beyond with many competitors including the Honda CR-V hybrid (US only), Toyota RAV4, and recently confirmed Mazda CX-30 Turbo.
