Hyundai has managed to keep its i-oniq concept coupe under wraps since it teased us almost three months ago, but the internet couldn't wait for the concept's Geneva Motor Show debut.

The crew from the Korean Car Blog snagged this first official image of the i-oniq, the next interpretation of Hyundai's "fluidic sculpture" design language. And it's certainly a looker, in a oddly French kinda way.

Coming in around 173 inches, the i-oniq is a little shorter than BMW 3 Series coupe, and is reportedly a serial hybrid, with a small displacement gasoline engine powering up a battery pack, with a pair of motors driving the rear wheels.

Unfortunately, those are all the details we have for now, but we suspect a full reveal before its debut next week.

      For a moment i thought it was F12's Fat cousin Tony from the Bronx lol. the side from the rear looks a bit like the Cadillac CTS coupe. I'm not sure this is a nice looking car just out of the ordinary thats all.

      Soon, cars won't even have windows at all. Seriously, driving this would be like driving from the back of a cave.

        So you believe Fox News, the real world Onion Network? But I ask again... And the Hyundai Genesis Coupe IS a family car? That whole article was about them not building a pickup. They're coming out with another crossover. There's no way in hell they can add to their lineup since every car in their lineup is in almost every niche.

      Wow, just looked through the comments and was waiting to see some negative post from ___|___, I mean invisibleblog....anyway. There hasn't been any. I think he might have been banned lol. But this just dropped my chin to the floor. This is incredibly gorgeous. If this is Hyundai's new design direction, then I'm all for it. The current Sonata is way over designed.

      hahhaha....remember the From chrysler firepower concept.....!! Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search This article is about a concept car. For the similarly named engine, see Chrysler FirePower engine. Chrysler Firepower The Chrysler Firepower was a Dodge Viper based concept car. It also takes some of the styling cues from the Chrysler Crossfire that DaimlerChrysler produced under the Chrysler brand. The Firepower's engine was a 6.1 L Hemi V8. According to Chrysler, this engine produced 425 hp (317 kW) and could propel the vehicle to a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds. The concept was once featured on the cover of Car and Driver. Designers responsible for the design were Brian Nielander (exterior), who also worked on the ME-412 concept; and Greg Howell (interior).

        And this looks absolutely nothing like it. So I'm failing to see your point...

        I love playing the thumbs war. But so far it looks like the Hyundai trolls are winning.

      I'm not trying to be overly critical but I am not getting the beauty described by others. I see a 370z shooting brake, or they took a page from the current recipe book from Honda and gave it a bulbous rear end and said "thats sporty". And please can the auto makers and every other industry please stop with the whole "i" prefix nomenclature? Its very old, played out and doesn't make your product any more interesting.
