Hyundai to reveal all-new SUV concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2009

The all-new Hyundai HED-6 SUV concept

Hyundai is all set to unveil a brand-new concept car – a compact SUV – at this year’s Salon International de L’Automobile, in Geneva, on the 3rd of March this year. This new compact SUV concept, codenamed HED-6, was styled at Hyundai’s European design headquarters in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

Equipped with LED daytime running lights and powered by a 175bhp, 1.6-litre GDi turbocharged engine, the HED-6 will provide a glimpse at the future of Hyundai SUVs.

Hyundai will also unveil a three-door version of the i20 hatchback, and a new version of the i30 blue, with stop-start technology. This will be the first usage of this technology (which Hyundai calls ISG – Idle Stop and Go) on a Hyundai production car anywhere in the world.

Hyundai is committed to bringing all its i-series cars to India and after the i10 and the i20 which have already been launched here, the i30 – perhaps the ISG variant – could be coming to our shores pretty soon. The HED-6 should also be interesting because the first production SUV to be based on this concept is also almost certainly coming to India, probably in 2010.
