Hyundai reveals the future


Hyundai New Zealand says the striking interior design concept of an all-new compact sedan just released in Korea points to the brand’s future look

Hyundai labels the design concept ‘Wind Craft’, a dynamic and futuristic direction aimed at a youthful generation. First up, it’s seen in the new model codenamed MD.

“Wind Craft highlights the depth and potential of Hyundai’s new design language,” explains Tom Ruddenklau, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai New Zealand.

“This is the future, arriving now. Expect to see this approach across Hyundai models in coming years.”

The interior of the all-new MD is striking and stylish, with a bold silver garnish originating at the crash pad and flowing to the console. The combination high-gloss black and metallic finishes adds a futuristic and high-tech aesthetic to the interior.

Other features of the interior cabin include a four-spoke steering wheel with fingertip control of audio and cruise control systems and a VFD (Vacuum Florescent Display) instrument cluster with two-cylinder design displaying key information, illuminated in Hyundai’s signature blue hue.

Previewed at the 2010 Busan International Motor Show, MD represents the latest incarnation of Hyundai’s signature ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ philosophy, and showcases the innovative GGDI (Gamma Gasoline Direct Injection) engine.

The Hyundai MD is expected in New Zealand in 2011.
