Hyundai has released a new teaser image of their HED-6 concept which will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The HED-6 was styled at the company's European Design headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany and it hints at Hyundai's future styling direction for an upcoming compact SUV.
Dubbed an "urban nomad" and a "car of contrast for a world of contrast", Hyundai says inspiration for the new concept came from cultural cities such as Berlin, Paris and London. The dramatic exterior features a blend of muscular curves and sharp angular lines which helps to create an impressive appearance. Other key aspects of the HED-6's design include back-swept front headlights, a hexagonal grille, 21-inch mirror-polished alloy wheels, and a special three-dimensional rear window that is made from high-performance plastic instead of traditional glass.
Power comes from Hyundai's 1.6-liter GDi turbocharged engine which produces 175 HP.
The company will also use the Geneva Motor Show to debut the i30 blue which features the brand's first use of stop/start technology called Idle Stop and Go (ISG). The i30 blue equipped with a 1.6-liter petrol engine uses 7% less fuel in the combined cycle and produces 10g/km of CO2 less than the standard i30 1.6. The i30 blue will be offered in five-door hatchback and estate form and power will come from either the previously mentioned 1.6-liter engine or an even more economical 1.4-liter engine.
Hyundai will also use the show to debut the new i20 three-door which will become the new entry-level version of the i20.
