Hyundai has expanded the Tucson range with a new N Line trim, costing from £25,995.
The introduction coincides with the launch of Hyundai’s new mild-hybrid diesel engine, which replaces its conventional diesel.
The new N Line model is inspired by Hyundai’s N Performance vehicles and features 19-inch alloy wheels, sportier styling and black details.
Inside, the Tucson N Line includes N-branded leather-suede sport seats with red accent stitching, which is also carried over to the N branded leather steering wheel.
Dynamic modifications over regular Tucson models include revised power steering, to give a more direct feel, and firmer suspension.
Prices will start from £25,995 for the Tucson N Line 1.6 T-GDi 177PS manual, which in addition to the N Line specific equipment, also offers heated and height adjustable front seats, with an lumbar support, keyless entry, black cloth headlining, climate control, automatic dimming rear view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, electric parking brake and privacy glass.
It has CO2 emissions from 151g/km.
The all-new 1.6 CRDi 48-Volt Hybrid will be available with the SE Nav trim level and above.
Under acceleration, the system supports the engine with up to 12kW of power, reducing fuel consumption and emissions. During in-gear deceleration and braking, energy is recuperated to recharge the battery.
It emits from 113g/km of CO2 and can achieve 48.7mpg on the WLTP cycle.
Prices for the mild-hybrid start at £26,450, rising to £33,035. The N Line mild-hybrid costs from £27,760.
