In the Indian capital of New Delhi, the Hyundai Hexa Space MPV concept make its world premiere. The MPV concept is targeted to young urban families in emerging markets who require their vehicles to serve many roles.

Codenamed HND-7, the Hexa Space MPV concept attempts to re-invent the use of interior space by incorporating eight hexagonally shaped seats that fit together like puzzle pieces. This function maximizes internal space while reducing vehicle width - a key consideration for maneuvering the crowded urban streets of India and other emerging nations.

The center seats fold flat for greater comfort, the second row folds flat to create a limousine function, the back row folds flat for light-cargo use. Furthermore, seven seats fold flat for heavy hauling and all eight fold flat for camping. The center seat in the first two rows of the Hexa Space is positioned slightly behind the seats on either side, allowing passengers to sit three-abreast without feeling cramped.

To maximize utility and space even further, an innovative sliding rear door opens out and back creating a wide-open pillarless entry way for ease of movement and loading.

Based on the platform from the compact Hyundai ix20, the Hexa Space is 4,300 mm long, 1,820 mm wide and 1,647 mm high, giving it substantial headroom. The wheelbase is 2,750 mm and runs on 19-inch wheels.

Hexa Space is powered by Hyundai's Kappa 1.2-liter turbo GDI engine, which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Hexa Space's interior is completed with high-tech features, including a touch-screen center console, a push-button shifter and a cluster ionizer air purifier. Several storage spaces are tucked throughout the interior.
