Hyundai’s sporty Tucson N Line is now available with hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains for the first time.

Previously only available with conventional petrol variants, the N Line trim brings a range of sporty enhancements to Hyundai’s striking-looking Tucson SUV.

Exterior changes include a reshaped front bumper and sharpened air intake, which is taller than one fitted on the conventional Tucson for a more dynamic look.

At the rear, there’s an aerodynamic spoiler, large diffuser and twin-tip exhausts. All cars sit on 19-inch wheels with a geometric pattern mirroring that applied to the car’s grille.

Both the conventional hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains use a 1.6-litre petrol engine. The former links this to a 1.49kWh battery, while the latter uses a much larger 13.8kWh battery for an electric-only range of up to 38 miles and low CO2 emissions of just 31g/km.

Prices for the N Line models start from £34,900. It brings a wide range of standard equipment above the styling tweaks including leather and suede seat trim, dual-zone climate control and LED headlights. Inside, there’s a 10.25-inch infotainment screen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, alongside a 10.25-inch display ahead of the driver.

Buyers can also upgrade to N Line S trim which adds three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof and adaptive cruise control – among other features. These higher-spec cars cost from £36,820.

Both the N Line and N Line S trim feature a variety of safety assistance systems including downhill brake control, driver attention warning and forward collision avoidance assist, among other features.
