Hyundai Tucson

THE sporty-trimmed N Line versions of Hyundai's striking new Tucson family SUV have gone on sale.

Petrol and mild-hybrid models arrive first, with hybrids and plug-in hybrids arriving due to come later.

Priced from £31,110, the N Line range opens with a 1.6-litre 148bhp petrol engine and a six-speed manual gearbox.

It climbs to £37,065 for a N Line S with a 178bhp mild-hybrid petrol engine, seven-speed double-clutch automatic gearbox and four-wheel-drive.

A different grille and light treatment, black trim and various spoilers and pieces of sporty trim help set the N Line apart from its Tucson brethren.
