Hyundai announces prices and specs for the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the new Tucson N Line. Prices start at £34,635.
But when Hyundai announced prices and specs for the new Tucson N Line in April, they didn’t make the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions available. But now they have.
Just like the rest of the Tucson N Line range, the hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions come in both N Line and N Line S versions.
The Tucson N Line Hybrid (prices from £34,635) uses the 1.6 T-GDi petrol engine mated to an electric motor and 1.49kWh battery for a total output of 227bhp sent to the front wheels through a six-speed auto.
The Tucson plug-in Hybrid (prices from £39,275) uses the same 1.6-litre petrol engine as the hybrid but with a bigger, 13.8kWh, battery, delivering 261bhp to all four wheels also through a six-speed auto ‘box, and with an EV range of 38 miles.
Standard kit for the regular N Line models emulates that for the ICE versions of the Tucson, including 19″ alloys, N Line body kit, LED headlights, Climate, 10.25″ instruments and infotainment, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
N Line S models (which add £1,920 to the price) add in stuff like Panoramic roof, heated steering wheel, KRELL Sound, Adaptive Cruise and side window blinds, with both N Line and N Line S models getting a raft of nannies including Downhill Brake Control, Speed Limit Assist and Forward Collision Avoid.
Ashley Andrew, Hyundai UK MD, 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.
