Hyundai has revealed the sporty HB20 R-Spec concept at the 2014 Sao Paulo Auto Show, which is not meant for production but Hyundai’s future design language.
Hyundai is experiencing a prolonged spell of success currently throughout the globe. With great focus on their design language and an aggressive product lineup for every market’s taste, they are leaving no stone unturned. Sticking to their motto ‘New Thinking New Possibilities”, Hyundai has showcased the HB20 R-Spec concept at the ongoing Sao Paulo Auto Show to give a clue about their future theme of styling. The concept is not intended to hit the production but exhibit the possible future of such cars with a racy and youthful styling. The South Korean automaker is gathering feedback from the public and we hope that they incorporate such styling cues into their future production cars.
The Hyundai HB20 R-Spec is treated with a blue matte finish exterior contrasting with brushed silver accents on the ORVMs, door handles, alloys and other panels. The pointed nose of the concept car features a sharp headlamp cluster with LEDs and projectors, large hexagonal grille and the chunky wide air intakes. The 17-inch alloy wheels grabs attention with red brake calipers and carbon fiber appliques.
The rear profile of the Hyundai HB20 R-Spec is very tastefully done with a sci-fi inspired LED tail lamp cluster and dual chrome finished exhaust integrated to a chiseled brawny bumper. Hyundai has reworked the interiors as well that includes changes on the dashboard, seats, steering wheel and gear lever. The seats are stitched in blue and the interior trims include premium materials like leather and Alcantara.
The young audience is bound to get impressed by the sporty design theme Hyundai has showcased. Currently, the automaker offers R-Spec performance oriented models at the higher end of their lineup. We believe if they trickle down the R-Spec elements to the entry and mid-level models as an option, the enthusiasts would have a wide grin on their face. Imagine a Hyundai Elite i20 R-Spec having such exteriors.
