Hyundai i-Flow Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

This guy, the Hyundai i-Flow Concept, is said to be a preview of a "future D-segment contender" from the Korean automaker.

Showcasing an edgier take on the corporate design language that is currently beginning to infiltrate Hyundai's very brisk dealership lots, the i-Flow goes for a smaller exterior footprint but more interior space with a severely pared-down cockpit. The frugality continues under the hood with a 1.7-liter turbodiesel hybrid powertrain making it all happen through a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission, and recycling – energy harvesting, that is – is taken almost all the way with flexible solar panels on the roof and additional power produced via exhaust heat. You can take a closer look at Hyundai's future in our gallery of high-res photos below.

      Can we get a profile shot please? It's probably this car's best angle

      Hyundai is now a design leader among asian brands. I'll take hyundai design over toyota, honda, nissan, mazda and subaru.

        My first thought on the dash was Salvador Dali.

      The asymmetrical steering wheel and seats look really awkward.

      Looks like Mazda concepts from the last 3 years. same face and swoopy lines. Hyundai's apparently copying concepts and productions models these days.

        I would say all days...

      Appropriate name for a car that looks like hot taffy in a wind tunnel. Hyundai's designs of late look more melted than sculpted, with bodywork reminding me of loose flab rather than taut muscle. Not a good thing. And I realize it's a concept, but that interior looks like it was based on a hastily scrawled sketch. I can appreciate overstyled, unrealistic concept interiors if they are pretty, but this one is not. Between the Korean siblings, I'm finding Kia's designs much more appealing.

      Looks like the Mercedes Benz F-800

        @Tim
        Huh?

        The F800 borrows the Sonata's side-positioned headlamps and the wavy side character lines that have been on various Hyundai models for years.

      Turbo-diesel in a sporty car? Pretty much guarantees the U.S. will never see it, if it ever gets produced.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I think its attractive. Whats the back look like?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I don't mind it. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a preview of the upcoming Elantra.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ditto....
