Hyundai Motor UK has announced the pricing and specification of TUCSON N-Line Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid models, adding both high power and increased electrified efficiency into the sporty N-Line trim.
Already introduced with T-GDi and Mild Hybrid powertrains, the TUCSON N Line offers sporty and distinctive exterior design features and differentiating interior details. External design enhancements include the parametric jewel patterns on the grille pieces, which have been elaborated with edges, creating additional reflections depending on the angle. The grille also incorporates the N Line badge. Under the grille sits a rectangular-shaped bumper and a refined air intake, which is taller and bigger than on the standard TUCSON for a sportier look, while striking black bezels frame the head lamps. At the rear, the TUCSON N Line is fitted with a longer aerodynamic spoiler, complete with stabilising fins, a diffusor and aggressive twin-tip muffler exhausts. Standard 19-inch alloy wheels, featuring a geometric pattern mirroring TUCSON’s grille, complete the look.
Both Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid powertrains feature already in the TUCSON range, with the 1.6 T-GDi combined with a hybrid system including a 1.49kWh battery and motor to deliver a total system output of 230PS and 350Nm, with CO2 emissions of 131g/km (WLTP). Power is delivered through a 2WD 6 speed fully automatic transmission that utilise a high voltage oil pump rather than a traditional heavy torque converter to enhance efficiency further. The 1.6 T-GDi Plug-in Hybrid shares the same 6 speed automatic transmission but also adds 4-wheel drive and a 13.8kWh battery delivering a total system output of 265PS, a pure electric range of up to 38 miles and CO2 emissions of only 31g/km (WLTP).
N Line models, starting from £34,900, offer a comprehensive specification including 19” alloy wheels, gloss black door frames, body coloured door mirrors, dark chrome grille, leather and suede seat trim, dual zone climate control, LED daytime running lamps, LED headlamps and tail lamps, privacy glass, electric parking brake, front and rear parking sensors with rear view camera, keyless entry with start/stop button, 10.25” drivers supervision instrument cluster, 10.25” touchscreen satellite navigation with LIVE services and Bluelink connected car services, subscription free Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Customers looking for a higher level of technology and comfort can also choose the N Line S trim, which adds three zone climate control, LED interior lamps, tilt and slide panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control with stop/go function, heated steering wheel, rear side window blinds, smart electric tailgate, KRELL premium audio with 8 speakers and subwoofer. Prices for the N Line S start at £36,820.
Both models offer a high level of standard safety equipment including front, front side, front centre and curtain airbags, ABS with Brake Assist System (ABS/BAS), Downhill Brake Control (DBC), Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) with car, pedestrian and cycle recognition, Hill-start Assis Control (HAC), Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), Lane Follow Assist (LFA), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Multi Collision Braking (MCA), Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tyre pressure display. N Line S models also benefit from Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist (BCA), Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with Junction Turning function (FCAJT) and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW).
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director Hyundai Motor UK, said “TUCSON has received a tremendous reception in the UK from customers, with nearly a third of our sales attributed to this dynamic SUV. The additions of Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid powertrains to the N Line trim now mean that customers can choose sporty design and combine it with powertrains that deliver both high levels of performance and efficiency.”

More than 75 per cent of the Company’s line-up is now available as an electrified version, and the company plans to electrify its entire range by 2025. Furthermore, Hyundai is a pioneer in zero-emission mobility, including its fully electric 300-mile range Kona Electric, its second-generation fuel cell electric vehicle NEXO, and the soon-to-be launched battery-electric IONIQ 5, the first model in its new IONIQ line-up brand.
