Hyundai News:Hyundai Introduces the Vision G Concept

Recommended Posts

What you see before you is the Hyundai Vision G Concept, which debut yesterday at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This concept gives a hint of what the Korean automaker possibly has in store for higher end vehicles.

 

"The design is our interpretation of the idea that Hyundai breathes into all of its vehicles – a DNA that balances design and performance with the idea that you don’t need to be over the top in terms of glitz and stereotypical luxury cues,” said Peter Schreyer, Hyundai’s president and chief design officer.

 

This is evident when compare the Vision G to another Hyundai luxury concept, the HCD-14. Where the HCD-14 was striking with a large grille, suicide doors, and oversized carbon-fiber wheels, the Vision G concept is quite the opposite. The Vision G concept features such details such as a long hood, high-beltline, and roofline that extends all the way to the trunk. The interior is richly detailed in quilted leather and wood trim. The dashboard boasts a wide, LCD screen.

 

For power, the Vision G uses the 5.0L V8 found under the hood of the Genesis and Equus sedans. The V8 produces 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque.

 

Hyundai will be showing off the Vision G Concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.

I like how it looks from the front or side, but the back looks odd.  Looks like they stole Jag XJ tail lights, but it also looks like a mish-mash of Regal and XTS from the back.   I like that there is no B pillar, but somehow I guess if this made production the B pillar would be in there and it would be less cool.

 

Good engine with the V8, a V8 luxury coupe would be cool since Lincoln won't do a Mark VIII successor and Buick has no Riviera and Cadillac no Eldorado.

Nothing can touch the Avenir concept for luxury GT design, which is what this thing vaguely reminds me of from the rear and profile. Maybe it's a stretch, but this Hyundai design doesn't move me. Front feels like some kind of Kia/Aston/Fusion mashup.

 

Moar better.

yeah...I could see where you are coming from...the rear buttocks remind me of the Avenir somewhat also.  But the Avenir is not a coupe, and as SMK said, about Lincoln not doing a Mark VIII and Buick not having a Riviera and an El Miraj / Eldorado still a decade away...this car...with a V8 making 400 horsepower under the hood is a cool thing none the less...

 

And thanx to you...I can now see the Fusion headlights in the design...Im not sure how to handle that though...Ill tell you tomorrow...

The midsection of the body is quite lovely! I just love a large coupe. A Buick Avenir coupe would make a great and properly RWD Riviera!

They can lure disloyal designers from any company they want.  If the bones are junk, that will remain as underlying truth.

Holy F. I think that looks abslutely amazing.  Talk about presense on the road. That front end demands it. I haven't read the article but they better plan on using an equally powerful drivetrain.

is it me or does it seem the gaping grill is just a lazy design element nowadays?

 

otherwise, i do like it. overall. the back end is still almost a blank slate, in a bad way.

That Avenir is just gorgeous and I haven't said that about a Buick in a long time! It would be nice if GM would just go ahead and pull the trigger on this already.

The difference between the Hyundai concept and the Avenir (aside from number of doors) is Hyundai probably has the guts to build their car, the Avenir will probably sit on the shelf because the bean counters won't be able to "build a business case" for it.

 

If you want a full size, V8, rear drive coupe, there is the Challenger, or spend over $100k for an S-class coupe or over $200k for a Bentley.  Pretty limited choices.

Would I be crossing the line in telling you that you are full of sunshine today?

 

I know it aint a GM car...but can you at least admire the bloody car?

Or hate the way it looks...I dont care either way....its just that your posting style today struck me as odd behavior.

The fact of the matter is still this:

 

http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a26337/go-lutz-yourself-driven-by-design/

 

From the link (posted today in Road and Track):

 

"There aren't any bad cars anymore. They just don't exist. The days of seeing a comparison test of four cars where one is the obvious loser are gone, replaced by a new age of automotive equality. Reliability, braking, steering, handling, ride, and refinement are all largely on par across automakers and segments. That leaves just one chief differentiator: design."

 

"Who's consistently at the top? Hyundai and Kia. Everything that company does is beautifully executed, thanks to the efforts of head designer Peter Schreyer."

 

Two things that I want to show you

1. All cars today are about on the same level of reliability...some are still better than others....like that paragragh says...

2. Buick may or may not build the Avenir, but Im willing to bet that Hyundai WILL produce this thing in the next two years...and THAT is a good thing...for us...the car enthusiasts...

 

Dont mean to single you out today...Im sorry if it seems that way...but your posts just struck a chord with me today.

I hope we could remain friendly to each other regardless of what has transpired today between us.

 

 

PS: Im actually down with the Fusion headlight design in this car...

Weird, but I like it A LOT on this car. I guess they just incorporated it very well to me.
