News Hyundai Tucson N Line Unveiled, Not Planned For North America

Hyundai Tucson N Line Unveiled, Not Planned For North America

The Hyundai Tucson is a strong seller in Canada, but it’s even more popular in Europe. That may explain why Hyundai is giving its top-selling Tucson the N Line treatment in Europe first.


Here in North America, the only Hyundai N Line we have is the Elantra GT N Line which starts at $27,199. The changes made to that model over a regular Elantra GT reflect the improvements to the Hyundai Tucson N Line.

In a way, N Line is to Hyundai what A-Spec is to Acura, or F-Sport to Lexus. It wouldn’t be faire to compare N Line to AMG or BMW M, however, as aside from a stiffer suspension the Hyundai Tucson N Line doesn’t get a power boost or significant performance upgrades.

There are plenty of cosmetic changes, however. A dark chrome mesh grille, black window surrounds and headlight bezels, black 19-inch wheels, a rear spoiler (black as well), black mirror caps and a roof that is as you may have guessed… Black.

The interior comes with N Line seats covered in a leather and suede mix with improved bolstering, aluminium pedals and N emblems here and there including on the gear lever, and red stitching.

European buyers will get to choose between a mild hybrid, 182-horsepower four-cylinder, a 1.6-liter turbo with 174 horsepower, and a 1.6-liter diesel to power their Tucson N Line. Nine different colors are offered for the exterior.

For now, Hyundai has no plans to bring their sportier Tucson variant in Canada or the US. Of course, product planning is influenced by demand. If enough people say they want a Hyundai Tucson N Line, we will surely get it.
