Hyundai ix-onic Concept - First Pictures at Geneva

South Korean automaker Hyundai has finally unveiled the ix-onic concept, a prototype model that incorporates several Hyundai firsts as well as a bunch of new features that bring it closer to the "urban nomad" nickname given by its creator. The ix-onic (pronounced ik-sonnik) has an overall length of 4,400mm and is said to provide remarkable interior space to its passengers.

And since we already started talking about the interiors, the silky cream-white leather greets the driver, as well as light-alloy magnesium accents and embossed leather. The interior rear-view mirror also features a blind spot warning light that alerts the driver whenever he aims to change the lanes while another driver travels in proximity.

As you can see in the photos attached to the article, the concept looks greats, with the LED daytime running lights (DLR) moving down whenever the dipped beam is switched on. In addition, the South Korean automaker also installed an additional set of DLR on the exterior door mirrors. High-mounted tail lamps and rear bumper incorporating dual, polished, aluminum exhaust tailpipes contribute to the overall appealing appearance of the model.

Proceeding to the powertrain, the car is powered by a 1.6-liter GDi turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, with ISG (Idle Stop & Go) technology for reduced fuel consumption. Mated to a double-clutch six-speed transmission, this engine unit produces a maximum power of 170 PS, with CO2 emissions reaching a rating of 149 g/km. The concept also features a so-called "intelligent" four-wheel drive system "to deliver outstanding on-road driving dynamics", as the automaker mentioned in a statement for the press.
