Hyundai HND-9 Concept at Seoul Motor Show

The Hyundai HND-9 is a concept coupe from Hyundai, heading for the Seoul Motor Show at the end of March, and probably previews the next Genesis Coupe.

Hyundai may be planning a relatively quiet year on the new car front in 2013, but they’re still making and effort for their home Motor Show – the Seoul Motor Show – which starts at the end of March, with a new concept coupe.

The Hyundai HND-9 is, according to Hyundai, the ‘Latest luxury sports coupe’, which we assume means the HND-9 is pointing at the next generation Genesis Coupe, a car we don’t (yet) get in the UK.

The HND-9 gets an evolution of Hyundai’s fluidic design (although, unlike the latest Santa Fe where Hyundai decided the new design was called ‘Storm’, the HND-9’s design doesn’t get a name) which Hyundai say is a modern reinterpretation of an elegant classic premium sports coupe.

With a long bonnet, long wheelbase and butterfly doors, the HND-9 certainly makes a design statement, even if a lot of the detail (like those doors) is unlikely to make it in to a production car.

There are unique lights front and back, twin exhausts, hexagonal grill and spiral-shaped lines all conspiring to make the HND-9 an appealing luxury coupe.

Under the bonnet seems promising too, with a 3.3 litre turbo V6 with an 8-speed auto ‘box delivering the HND-9’s 365bhp to the back wheels and promising decent performance.

The Hyundai HND-9 will debut at the Seoul Motor Show later this month, which runs almost parallel to the New York Auto Show.

More then.

    It really is time for Hyundai to get on with selling their better offerings in the UK. There must be enough credibility by now to make it a viable option?

  2. Imperial Car Supermarkets says

    For Hyundai… That’s not a bad looking car! But will the real thing look anything like the concept?

    • says

      Hyundai has a pretty good track record of keeping production cars close to the concept (like the i40) but you can be pretty sure stuff like the butterfly doors won’t make it in to the next gen Genesis!

  3. Sacha says

    Why don’t Hyundai bring the Genesis Coupe to the UK? Is it because they think its too upmarket to sell here?

What do you think?
