New hatch and advanced SUV concept will be at Swiss show in March
16 February 2007

Alongside its new Kia Cee'd-based hatchback, Hyundai will unveil a new SUV concept at the Geneva motor show in March.

We caught the new hatchback – codenamed FD – testing in early February. Though it's based on the same platform as the Cee'd, Hyundai says it will be more comfort-oriented.

Hyundai also revealed that the new car won't be called the Arnejs, the name it gave to earlier concept versions of the car.

In fact, Hyundai says it's going to unveil a whole new naming strategy at Geneva. Let's just hope that it doesn't follow Kia with random apostrophes in the middle of names.

Judging by the sketch Hyundai has released, its new SUV concept looks similar to the HCD10 Hellion concept shown at LA in November 2006.

Hyundai says the SUV uses advanced materials, is environmentally friendly and offers outstanding results in computer-animated pedestrian safety tests.
