An auto show or exhibition is the best time and place to unveil a new concept or model because that is when an auto company will get much coverage from the world’s media. At the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, Hyundai has unveiled an all new concept car which is known as the Hexa Space Concept.

Hyundai has emphasised that the Hexa Space Concept combines the elements of a crossover with a minivan and it will revolutionise the usage of interior space. (In other words, it is still an MPV- in my opinion, that is). The concept is also referred to as the HND-7 which signifies the seventh concept in a line of future conceptual designs.

The Hexa Space Concept highlights the latest conceptual designs from Hyundai. The car incorporates Hyundai’s “fluidic sculpture” design scheme and the company targets a production run which will begin in two years time in the Indian market. The vehicle is approximately 4.3 metres in length, 1.8 metres wide and 1.6 metre high.

The unique part of the Hexa Space Concept is that it can sit up to 8 passengers even though it has a wheelbase of only 2.74 metres. The vital point of this is the seating arrangement where the seats are hexagonal in shape and arranged together like a puzzle. The front row has three seats which are considered normal among today’s range of MPVs.

The unique part is the centre seats of the first two rows which are mounted further back than the two row’s outer seats. This allows a better amount of legroom for the passengers especially in the last row.

The Hexa Space Concept also has a unique door opening design. The rear doors lift outwards and slides further back. This will enable easier access to the rear row passengers. Other interior features include a touch screen centre console, a button operated gear knob and an air purifier.

The concept car was designed in South Korea and it shares the same platform with the Hyundai ix20. Since the Hexa Space is relatively small in size, Hyundai will use a 1.2 litre turbocharged engine which is mated to a six speed gearbox.

Hyundai is one of the largest exporter in India and also the second largest automaker there. And in order for Hyundai to get at the top in the Indian auto market, unveiling of new concepts like this proves to be an important business decision.
