2012 Delhi Auto Expo – Hyundai Hexa Space MPV
With the occasion of the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, the Korean automaker Hyundai has revealed the rather weird Hexa Space MPV which has been designed for young urban families that live in emerging countries and need a multi-purpose car.
Hyundai wanted to reorganize how the interior space is used by implementing eight hexagonally-shaped seats that fit together pretty much like puzzle pieces. This configuration maximizes the interior space while at the same time it diminishes the width of the car. This is extremely good news for driving through the streets of India that are very crowded.
The seats in the center can be folded flat for additional comfort, the second row can be folded flat in order to create a limousine-like function, while the back row also folds flat for carrying additional cargo. In addition, seven seats can be folded flat for extra hauling while folding all eight of them will serve for camping.
For improving the comfort, the Hyundai Hexa Space MPV has a unique sliding rear door that opens out and back which creates a wide-open pillar-less entry way for easy loading and movement. The car is actually based on the ix20 model and it is 4,300 mm long; 1,647 mm high and 1,820 mm wide, while its wheelbase is 2,750 mm long.
This concept is riding on 19-inch rims and it is powered by a small 1.2-liter turbo GDI engine that is linked to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. We should also mention that the interior cabin has a push-button shifter, a touchscreen center console as well as a cluster ionizer air purifier. Just like any other MPV, there are a bunch of storage space available in the cabin.
