Hyundai HED-6 ix-ONIC Concept - hi res

Plans include two MPVs, a sedan, and a new coupe

Hyundai has been on a roll lately, but in order to keep the momentum, the company is in the midst of unveiling a massive product offensive.

Autoweek.nl is reporting Hyundai will kick things off by launching a production version of their Ix-ONIC Concept which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. Set to become an eco-friendly alternative to the Volkswagen Tiguan, the ix35 will be powered by a new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with 140 hp and CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.

Later in 2010, Hyundai is expected to unveil two new MPV versions of their i20 and i30. Although details are limited, the five seat i20 MPV will measure 4.10 meters long, 1.77 meters wide and 1.60 meters high. Likewise, the seven seat i30 MPV will come in at 4.48 meters long, 1.80 meters wide and 1.61 meters high.

In 2011, Hyundai will launch a new i40 which is expected to be based on the Genus Concept. Aimed at the Volkswagen Passat and Opel Insignia, the i40 will be offered in both sedan and wagon form with a long list of fuel efficient engines.

Finally, Hyundai's sexy Veloster Concept will also head for production with a Mini Clubman-like four door arraignment (one on driver's side, two on the passenger's side, and one rear hatch). Engine options are expected to include a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 140 hp as well as a slightly larger 2.0-liter with 172 hp.

South Korea. If it was North Korea they wouldn't be allowed to sell in the West.

I've always been positive about Hyundai. Especially when commenting on this web site. But my conclusion, based on other people's comments is that most of them have absolutely no experience with these cars. So it's all about empty words with no reference to reality. Having tested a number of Hyndais I think now that this is one of the companies on the top of the chart regarding the "value for money" of their products.

Hmm, it's only Hyundai we're talking about here, so the big players won't be to disturbed with that.

A 1.6T with 140 hp, that's not really good. Maybe without the turbo it's just the normal 1.6 with 120 hp, what kind of turbo delivers just 20 hp?

The Ford Kuga influence is very strong indeed, just more rounded & bloated. Hyundai has been doing the 'Chinese' thing for years & has managed to just about get away with it.

Shouldn't this read: How Hyundai plans to rip off the design of yet another vehicle... this time its the Ford Kuga. Sad thing is that Hyundai will have theirs here in the states before Ford and they'll sell a ton of them. Pay attention Ford!

Well done for Hyundai, but still .. this Ix ONIC concept is a copy of Ford Kuga, as the Santa Fe is a kind of Q7 + Touareg copy ... why they don't hire some real designers, because the car are really good in this moment ?!
