Hyundai has just unveiled it’s all new ix-onic concept car at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Although most of us associate Hyundai as a Korean company, the ix-onic was styled at the company’s European Design headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
Hyundai say the concept is a a new approach to compact 4×4 SUVs. The concept measures 4,400mm in length, 1,850mm-wide and 1,650mm-high.
The vehicle is powered by a 125kW 1.6-litre GDi turbocharged, four-cylinder petrol engine, with ISG (Idle Stop & Go) technology. Additionally Hyundai are showing off their double-clutch six-speed transmission as well. Interestingly, we should expect everyday Hyundais to be equipped with this transmission in due time.
The 1.6-litre engine only emits 149 g/km of CO2. Hyundai will also show off the new three-door Hyundai i20 derivative and the i30 Blue model.
