Hyundai will bring their latest concept, the HED-6 to 2009 Geneva Motorshow to give us a preview of what the next generation of Hyundai compact SUVs would look like. The HED-6 has been designed at the company’s European Design headquarters in Russelsheim, Germany and is powered by a 1.6-litre GDi turbocharged engine that develops 175 hp.Hyundai is constantly striving with its design although it’s still a long way for them to really match the Europeans in this term, nevertheless they are getting their feet grounded well.
HED-6 concept car
Hyundai’s European design team has combined muscular design with everyday utility to create a car which will fit comfortably in an urban or out-of-town environment. The dramatic exterior look is enhanced by the hexagonal grille, angular style lines and piercing back-swept front headlamps,with the bold look completed by 21-inch, mirror-polished alloy wheels.
The three-dimensional, sculpted shape of the rear window is achieved using “Lexan” high-performance plastics instead of regular glass. To emphasise the dynamic flowing lines, the designers have developed a special ‘Ice Blue’ exterior paint, with an advanced pigment effect for a brilliant shine.
Equipped with LED daytime running lights and powered by a 175hp, 1.6-litre GDi turbocharged engine, HED-6 gives a clear indication of the direction Hyundai will take with its next generation of Hyundai SUVs.
Allan Rushforth, Vice President at Hyundai Motor Europe said, “The HED-6 brings an entirely new look to Hyundai’s SUV line-up. It fuses a robust exterior with a fresh and elegant interior, making for an eye-catching package, while its latest-generation power train highlights Hyundai’s clean-technology expertise.”
