Ford won’t be the only one making its presence known at the New Delhi Expo. Hyundai used the show to unveil its all-new Hyundai Hexa Space Concept, a highly versatile minivan that will see a production version go on sale in India in a few years’ time.
The Hexa Space Concept features a “fluidic sculpture” design and measures 169 inches long, 71 inches wide and 64 inches high. A bold front fascia with highly-stylized headlights, in addition to large LED taillight arrays, brings some flavor to an otherwise conventional MPV profile.
Featured inside the Hexa Space Concept is a hexagonal seating layout designed to optimize interior room. Each chair is fitted into a honeycomb matrix, allowing passengers to sit in a row without feeling squished together. Sliding doors, combined with the absence of a center column, create a wide-open entry on both sides of the vehicle. Need more cargo room? Just fold the seats.
Under the hood of the is a 1.2-liter turbocharged, direct-injection engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai says the Hexa Space Concept is targeted at young urban families in their 30s and 40s searching for a vehicle that serves many roles. With that objective, it has the Suzuki Ertiga in its sights.
