According to a recent report, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson N Line will be available with a turbo-diesel powertrain capable of producing power output ranging from 134 HP – 183 HP. One of them is a 2.0-liter CRDi four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that is claimed to produce 182 horsepower. However, this 2.0L CRDi turbo-diesel engine is equipped with a mild-hybrid system which is likely to increase its fuel efficiency. The mild-hybrid system on the 2020 Tucson N Line is combined with 0.44-kWh battery, starter-generator system, inverter, and low-voltage DC/DC converter.
The 2020 Hyundai Tucson N Line will also be powered by a 1.6-liter T-GDI gasoline engine rated at 175 horsepower and of course, this is suitable for buyers who prefer a gasoline engine rather than diesel. Apart from that, all engine options available on the New Tucson N Line SUV have passed the Euro 6d-TEMP emission standards which took effect since September last year.
Designed and developed in Europe, the 2020 Tucson N Line has been described by Hyundai as a “more than a new look” vehicle. It’s equipped with a more aggressive bumper design with a gloss-black touch on the rear spoiler and its mirror housings, as well as a new mesh-pattern grille with a touch of dark chrome. As for the standard equipment on this new compact SUV includes 19-inch alloy wheels, front/rear suspension with more springs rigid by around 5-8 percent.
The 2020 Hyundai Tucson N Line will be offered in nine exterior color choices when the car reaches European dealers. Several other changes and revisions are seen in the exterior design, including Black-bezel headlights with a new DRL signature, window frames with a dark touch, and Hyundai N sports seats wrapped in a leather-suede. According to the Korean automaker, the upcoming Tucson N Line is also getting a software change for its motor-driver electric power steering, which is claimed to offer a better feeling more directly to the vehicle.
There’s no official word on release date and price at the moment, but th 2020 Hyundai Tucson N Line is expected to reach U.S. showrooms later this year. While the official price tag for the new Tucson N Line is expected to be not much different from the current Tuscon SUV, which has been sold in Europe at a price range of £22,970 for the base model and £35,300 for the upper Premium trim level.
