- an n line version of the 2022 hyundai tucson crossover is coming soon.
- these teaser photos show its more aggressive styling and different wheels.
- we expect it to have a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four with around 290 horsepower.
hyundai will soon introduce an n line version of the new 2022 tucson compact suv. like other n line models, it promises extra power and more aggressive looks compared with the standard model. these teaser photos show us most of the tucson n line's exterior, and it should arrive a few months later than the base car, which is scheduled to go on sale in the u.s. in the summer of 2021.
because the tucson shares its base 2.5-liter inline-four with the sonata, we presume the n line version will also share its engine with the performance version of the mid-size sedan. that means we'll likely see a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four in the tucson, which would make it one of the most powerful compact crossovers on the market with around 290 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. the n line will likely have standard all-wheel drive and an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
the n line will look somewhat different too, and here we can see its larger wheels with an interesting multi-spoke design. the front fascia appears to have an n line–specific grille design, and the rear has a diffuser-style insert below the bumper. hyundai will also offer stiffer suspension tuning and larger brakes along with a possible option for summer performance tires.
while many of the tucson's competitors offer a more powerful upgrade engine, there aren't any rivals with an overtly sporty on-road performance model. we're looking forward to finding out more about the tucson n line in the coming months.
