The N Line although being a sports-oriented trim level does not provide any actual performance gains. It is more of a trim package with sporty cosmetic upgrades

2022 Hyundai Tucson Final Verdict

The all-new Hyundai Tucson does offer a good number of features across all three trims. Even though its performance is not as good as the competition, it is the interior that makes up for it by providing good amount of space and having a very attractive design, not to mention the many technology and safety features included as standard. However, if you are looking for more performance and more space, do look at the Honda CR-V.
