Hyundai Motor Company unveils the new Hyundai Tucson N Line. The South Korean car company has been on a roll lately as it has been releasing sportier and more performance-oriented versions of its standard vehicles.
As one of the latest vehicles to receive the N treatment, aside from the Hyundai Kona, the new Tucson now comes with sportier styling to match its already unique and angular looks. While not yet currently on sale, the vehicle is set to make its debut in a few month’s time. Teaser photos of the vehicle revealed that the N division plans give the vehicle a new taller and wider grille, a new set of bumpers, new air intakes, black detailing, 19-inch alloy wheels, and more prominent exhaust pipes.
On the inside, the Hyundai Tucson also gets the same treatment on the exterior. It comes with N-branded seats that also come with red contrast stitching, black headlining, and metal pedals to complete the look. Aside from this, the cabin of the vehicle remains largely the same as the normal version.
Where major improvements were done to the vehicle is in the handling department. The Hyundai engineers have given the vehicle adaptive dampers which are also reprogrammable. With this new feature, it is hoped that the vehicle becomes more agile and sharper to drive compared to the standard model.
However, it is important to note that despite having an N badge, this is still an N Line vehicle. As such we do not expect there to be improvements to power, as N Line vehicles are often appearance packages that give the standard model sportier looks with slightly better handling. As confusing as Hyundai’s performance and styling naming conventions can be, it looks as though the South Korean brand wants to show off what it can do with its next generation of vehicles. While details on the crossover are still sparse, we will just have to wait and see what the Hyundai Tucson N Line has in store once it officially launches.
