Hyundai Enduro concept at 2015 Seoul Motor Show (1)

Στην έκθεση της Σεούλ η Hyundai παρουσίασε το Enduro concept, ένα πρωτότυπο τρίπορτο crossover. Οι Κορεάτες σχεδιαστές θέλησαν να συνδυάζουν τον σχεδιασμό ενός κανονικού SUV και μιας enduro μοτοσυκλέτας, δημιουργώντας ένα όχημα που απευθύνεται σε όσους κατοικούν σε πολυσύχναστες μεγαλουπόλεις. Διαθέτει λεπτά LED φωτιστικά σώματα, μαύρα πλαστικά φτερά και αρκετές χρωμιομένες λεπτομέρειες, με τα πλαϊνά skirts να λειτουργούν και ως σκαλοπάτια για την ευκολότερη φόρτωση αντικειμένων στην οροφή. Ξεχωρίζει σίγουρα το πίσω συρτάρι του χώρου αποσκευών, με τον σχεδιασμό των πίσω κολόνων να βοηθά στη μείωση της αεροδυναμικής αντίστασης.


Έχει μήκος 4.271 mm, πλάτος 1.852 mm, ύψος 1.443 mm, με το μεταξόνιο να φτάνει τα 2.650 mm. Κίνηση παίρνει από έναν 2.0-λιτρο turbo κινητήρα απόδοσης περίπου 250 ίππων, που συνδυάζεται με ένα 7-τάχυτο αυτόματο κιβώτιο διπλού συμπλέκτη. Για την ώρα, παραμένει άγνωστο το αν η Hyundai θέλει να το περάσει στη παραγωγή, ως ένα συμπαγές crossover, μια κατηγορία που αναπτύσσεται ραγδαίως τα τελευταία χρόνια.

Hyundai introduces ‘Enduro’ lifestyle CUV concept at 2015 Seoul Motor Show

  • Urban crossover utility vehicle harmonises with energetic, athletic lifestyles
  • ‘The Professional Gear’ for drivers wanting to escape the ordinary
  • Design concept is expressed in rugged, versatile yet sophisticated form language

2 April 2015 Hyundai is celebrating the world premiere of its all-new design concept, the ‘Enduro’ lifestyle urban crossover utility vehicle (CUV), at the 11th Seoul Motor Show today.

The name ‘Enduro’ is derived from ‘Endurance.’ Also, Enduro visually combines SUV look with rally motorcycle which compete in the world’s toughest rally events. The Enduro is designed as the perfect partner for individuals living in the modern city with energetic, athletic lifestyles. By combining robust forms with bold styling, Enduro releases a sense of adventure and freedom for driver and passengers.

Enduro is ‘The Professional Gear’ for drivers wanting to escape from the ordinary. It features a new interpretation of Hyundai’s design signature hexagonal front grille, now with a lower centre of gravity creating a sense of stability. An aluminium aero blade connects the front fender to the grille, giving the Enduro a look of self-confidence.

Seen in profile, Enduro has the look of a crossover vehicle, with raised ground clearance, SUV-style fender cladding and a dark grey garnish to the lower parts of the car, which appear robust and protective, while expressing mobility and agility. The C-pillars are fitted with a unique aerodynamic air-blade to reduce drag and the side-skirts incorporate step bars for easier loading / unloading of the roof rack.

At the rear, the combination lamps form a continuous flow between the C-pillar and the rear spoiler. Like the Enduro’s front fascia treatment, an aluminium bumper spoiler flows from the rear fender and rear bumper creating a visual connection, as well as embracing the fog lamps. Detailed attention to the shaping of the rear fender’s volume has ensured the concept has an impressive road presence and a strong, stable stance.

Emotional, sensual and dynamic â€“ a cabin designed with passion Inside Enduro, the cabin is styled with the same enthusiasm and passion as the exterior. The Hyundai Advanced Design Team worked to create an emotional concept that expresses sensuality and dynamism, through organically interacting lines which generate an intensity that coexists with toughness and sophistication.

The styling of the dashboard and centre console feature the eye-catching combination of horizontal and vertical elements, which express sportiness, toughness and endurance. The Enduro’s cabin seems to wrap around the driver’s seat in a manner that creates a dynamic atmosphere, while underscoring the solidity of the vehicle’s structure. Facing the driver, the instrument cluster concentrates a multitude of information in an integrated display that minimizes distraction through its driver-centric design.

Small details of the interior are exploited to reinforce the Enduro’s sporty and upbeat image. Visual elements reminiscent of sports equipment are applied to those cabin components and surfaces which occupants touch. The steering wheel design features the spoke and handle moulding of a road bike and the door handles have a lightweight cowl image of an off-road bike. The design of the trunk turns it into a durable, flexible space, with versatile drawer-style compartments that can safely accommodate a broad range of lifestyle sports equipment.

Advanced technology boosts safety and intuitive operation While engineering the Enduro’s robust look and practical interior, the Hyundai Advanced Design Team also adopted advanced technologies to enhance the driving experience.

Conventional door mirrors are replaced with side- and rear-view cameras connected to a display in the overhead console. The cameras give the driver a fresh line of sight and a much wider field of view, enabling drivers to quickly check the car’s perimeter and oncoming traffic.

Inside the cabin, a new remote control offers dual operation linked to the integrated top / bottom menu display positions in the centre stack. Using the ‘top knob’ mode, the control governs the infotainment menu, while the ‘bottom knob’ mode controls the air-conditioning system, heating and ventilation to give more intuitive and comfortable operation. Air-conditioning is supplied to the rear seat occupants, and the rear seat offers a variety of folding options to extend the luggage space, delivering additional practicality and flexibility.
