Boss of Hyundai’s N division, Albert Biermann, has already disclosed that the i30 N would be the first of the many high-performance Hyundai vehicles that are to make it to production. However, this time around, he added that the company’s Tucson has the essence and platform to be a high-performance SUV. And we all know that is synonymous with slapping the Tucson with some N goodies.
If you look at it, it makes perfect sense too as the demand for crossovers and SUVs are at an all-time high. Plus, we have to understand that a lot of car makers have seen this potential, which is why vehicles like the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with spacious interiors and boot space come with 707bhp lurking beneath that bonnet. It may be relatively early for speculation, but it should do wonders for Hyundai if they first analysed how the market warms up to their i30 N later this year before they embarked on a similar road map for the Tucson. As always, we will keep you posted of the details, so stay tuned.
