Hyundai i-flow to be unveiled at Geneva motor show
15 February 2010

This is the first picture of the Hyundai i-flow concept car, which hints at a future Ford Mondeo rival.

The concept, which will be unveiled at next month's Geneva motor show, is described by Hyundai as "a stylish saloon that previews the look of its new D-segment contender".

Styled at the company’s European design headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany, i-flow takes its name from the aerodynamic shape and the flowing lines of the concept car.

The i-flow incorporates new tech from chemical company BASF, ranging from innovative lightweight materials to solar cells, to assist in reducing weight and improving energy efficiency.

No other details have been released.

I'd love to see what the front looks like. From this view it looks like the best looking concept car I've seen in a long while. I never took Hyundai seriously until they built their WRC Accent , which was a credible contender.

Wow! Hyundai are really getting their styling act together. It is good to see manufacturers carve their own niche rather than make their cars look Teutonic.

Would have to agree with you there; I'm intrigued to see what this looks like from other angles. I always liked the look of the Accent WRC's predecessor, the Hyundai Coupe rally kit car.

i50?

It looks great, but, after a while you might get fed up of the birds (winged variety!) having a bath on the boot lid everytime you parked it up.

Oooh i'd so love for this concept to be made just how it looks in it's photos but as usual these days car makers put out"teaser photos" so the side and rear three quarters views and rear are all we get,probably because the front looks like a baboon's a---e!, no, just joking,it'll have what's flavour of the month at the moment, and church organ grill and fancy day-time running lights, yawn, i wouldn't mind, but most are a cost option(an expensive cost option!).

Funny how many cars Hyundai have used to 'borrow' stylistic elements from. Side profile Saab 9-5, Concave rear window C6, rear assembly much like a Mondeo or current Camry (US), A pillars look the spit of the RR EX101 and the whole thing has the nuance of Peugeot. It no doubt will be interesting in the flesh but the only thing interesting so far is German company BASF's new technology.

Something's missing here. Everywhere but the UK, Hyundai just launched a new Sonata that fits the Mundano-Insignia-Camry mould.

14 February 2010

Its certainly a handsome car, but surely it would be an Insignia rival?. The Ford is being somewhat left behind by the smart Vauxhall. If only car magazines would start giving Vauxhall a bit of credit and get beyond their oh so obvious Ford bias. And I say that as a happy Galaxy owner. But then thats a VW i suppose.

Still wouldn't buy a Hyundai though, no matter how stylish.

The one thing I like about Hyundai is their 5yr warranty. When will other manufacures follow suit?
