Exclusively available with front-wheel drive, the Tucson N Line in the UK comes with the 1.6 T-GDI four-cylinder turbo from the get-go. This powerplant is good for 177 PS (175 bhp) and customers can opt for a dual-clutch transmission. A turbo diesel is also available, but as opposed to the 1.6 CRDi of yesteryear, this engine comes with mild-hybrid assistance and a 48-volt electrical system.

Care to guess how much the Tucson N Line costs in the United Kingdom? On-the-road pricing kicks off from £25,995 for the manual-equipped turbo while the diesel with the DCT levels up to £29,050. The 1.6 CRDi develops 136 PS (134 bhp) at the crankshaft, and like the gasoline-fueled option, the Tucson N Line can be ordered in seven colors.

Shadow Grey is one of the optional finishes, and Hyundai wants £665 for it. Being the sportiest expression of the Tucson, the N Line also happens to feature a lot of standard equipment in addition to the sports seats with leather-suede upholstery, sports steering wheel and gear lever, and ally wheels. For starters, the engineers decided to enhance the power steering and suspension.

From a stylistic standpoint, the front and rear bumpers along with the mesh-pattern grille finished in dark chrome are the highlights. Gloss-black mirror caps and N Line-specific daytime running lights are also included, along with 19-inch wheels and smoked bezels for the headlights.

The Tucson N Line comes with 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, DAB radio, Traffic Messaging Channel, Live Services, and Mapcar. Also on the technological front, driver-assist features include Autonomous Emergency Braking, the Active Bonnet System, Lane Keep Assist, Downhill Brake Control, and Trailer Stability Assist.

On a related note, the Tucson N “is set to arrive within the next two years.” What we know for the time being about the range-topping model is that Hyundai might squeeze out 340 horsepower from a four-cylinder turbo, likely an engine from the Theta III family.
