* HED-5 concept: six-seater with advanced materials and versatility * World premiere of a range of Eco-Dynamic vehicles

* World premiere of the new Matrix

A stunning new concept car, low-emission versions of Hyundai production models and a facelifted version of the Matrix will make the Hyundai stand a ‘must-see’ at the Geneva motor show next month.

Star attraction will be the HED-5, a six seat MPV that promises a new level of versatility combined with exceptional fuel economy. The revolutionary materials and construction techniques have been developed in co-operation with innovation partners such as Recaro, Bayer and LG.

As a company that has always prided itself on environmental friendliness and innovation, the challenge of reducing emissions from its range was irresistible to Hyundai.

A new package of innovations to be revealed at the show demonstrates how existing technology can make a significant (up to 29 percent) reduction in CO2 emissions, without punitive penalties in price, performance or driving enjoyment. This “near production” package represents a realistic and achievable advance in reduced emissions and fuel consumption.

Another model making its debut will be the 2008 Matrix mini MPV. The exterior styling is given a contemporary new look and is complemented by a refreshed range of colours. The interior is also adapted to bring it into line with other current Hyundai models.

A press conference will take place at the Hyundai stand in Hall 1, Booth 1031.1 on March 4th at 15.45 PM.
