Hyundai is once again on a roll with its design language and will evolve from the fluidic philosophy to a new setup that it has now previewed through the Le Fil Rouge concept which it has unveiled at Geneva.
The car is a two-door+ four-seater coupe with overt GT leanings and combines many elements from Hyundai’s design language over its 51 year-existence including its coupe concept from 1974. There is a lot to like in the car in terms of looks as you get the cascading grille, a GT silhouette that widens as you go to the back and a wide backside that guarantees attention. You also get 21-inch wheels and a stance that could match the Aston Martin’s and Mercedes GT cars.
The cabin, as one would expect, matches the design of the exterior and is meant to the add to the GT nature of the car. It’s a four-seater with a white and beige colour scheme where the latter is also the colour for the wood inserts in the doors and dashboard. There’s two massive digital screens in front as well as two smaller ones that fit behind the front seats. It’s a strict four-seater thanks to a massive centre console that extends from the front to the back.
Hyundai has termed the new design philosophy ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ and it will take over from the Fluidic design next year. Bits of this design have already reached the Kona, Nexo and new Santa Fe.
