Hyundai Unveils Stylish HND-9 Concept

South Korean auto giant Hyundai is making concerted efforts to dramatically change its products designs.

The Hyundai HCD-14 made its debut at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, catching everyone’s attention with its curves and elegance ­- which signalled a dramatic change in design by Hyundai.

Hyundai today unveiled a new stylish and sexy HND-9 Sports Coupe Concept, with official images revealed at the ongoing 2013 Seoul Auto Show. The design really caught our attention because of its unique and sporty look. The HND-9 features large butterfly doors; scenic front-and-rear ends views.

The interior design is based on three guiding concepts: elegance, high-tech interface and the abstract sounding 'spiral sculpture',. The aim, unsurprisingly, is better performance and increase in interaction. 

“Representing an evolution of Hyundai’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design philosophy, the rear-wheel drive sports coupe concept balances high performance with a sophisticated image,” said Suk-Geun Oh, head of Hyundai’s Design Center in Namyang, Korea. 

Check out the body-design and engine specifications of the Hyundai HCD-9 Sports Coupe Concept below:
  • Stretched 2,860mm wheelbase 
  • Overall length of 4,695mm 
  • Width of 1,890mm 
  • Height of 1,340mm 
  • Rear-wheel drive 
  • Front engine 
  • 3.3-liter turbocharged engine with 8-speed automatic transmission 
  • 365 horsepower engine 
“Based on the spiral sculpture concept – derived from Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy – dynamic and distinctive spiral-shaped metal lines frame the entire interior in a speedy and rhythmical way, creating a unique layout.”

“The seats are made of sporty yet luxurious mesh fabric, and project different colours when viewed from different angles. The driver-oriented, high-tech interface is modelled on an airplane cockpit, offering both improved functionality and aesthetics, optimized for dynamic driving,” Suk-Geun Oh added.
