Hyundai officially unveiled the eight-passenger Hexa Space Concept at the New Delhi Auto Show. This MPV features clever hexagonal seating designed to optimize interior room, with each chair fitting into a honeycomb matrix, allowing passengers to sit three across without feeling cramped or crammed together. The seats can also be folded flat to allow for expansive cargo room. Outside, the vehicle makes use of the Hyundai fluidic sculpture design language. A bold front fascia with exaggerated headlight displays and a sprawling front grille define the Hexa Space Concept's nose, while large LED tail light arrays mark the vehicle's rear.

Under the hood, a 1.2-liter turbocharged, direct-injection engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Not surprisingly, Hyundai doesn't have any plans to bring the Hexa Space to market any time soon, though a similar MPV-style creation could show up in the Indian Market to do battle with the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in coming years.

      The photos aren't working for me, but from what I can gather from the thumbnails, the 'hex seating' is a similar approach to the Honda FR-V/Edix and the Fiat Multipla.

      Hyundais always looked like ugly creatures that were created by Spore (except for Sonata, Azera, and Genesis), and this is no exception. They took a decent design and stretched it everywhere to make it look ungainly from every angle.

      This would go to the top of my shopping list if it were available today. It looks to be packaged similarly to the Mazda5, which is a good thing.

        Just curious that I get a down vote because I find this type of vehicle interesting.

      Exterior is terrible and stolen on all counts, but the interior looks production-ready, minus the pedals. I'll be impressed if the interior stays like that.

        stolen on all counts huh. It looks unlike any production car ive ever seen. But maybe i just have a more trained eye that can see past the silver paint and 4 wheels. Or maybe that comment is because this is Autoblog and a post about Hyundai. yeah i think its the latter.

      I like it and im waiting to replace our 2005 sienna with a mini-van that offers something new. The current crop are no different (no hybrid, no interesting design changes, no real feature improvements). So hopefully this will fit some of those criteria. But it looks a little small for a mini-van (by current standards)

      Hyundai/Kia are into some great things. I just wish they had a pick em up.

        Sorry, official word from Hyundai NZ at least, is that there are no plans for a pickup, despite the fact that if they did they'd sell plenty of them.

      Fiat did the same thing already with the Multipla, making it shorter than a Fiat Bravo but as wide as a Merc S-Class so there was plenty of width for three seats across in both the front and rear, and you still had the option of removing the middle rear seat to make a really spacious five seater. Honda's FR-V made the mistake of putting three seats abreast in a compact width, so that it was impossible to sit comfortably unless you were very thin.
