Hyundai HIC Concept
Hyundai has designs on the future at the Seoul Motor Show

‘Dreams on wheels’ was the theme of Hyundai Motor Company’s stand at the 2002 Seoul Motor Show with centre stage going to the daring and futuristic HIC and HCD-7 concept cars. HMC complemented this look into the future by revealing new and innovative technologies that will revolutionise the Hyundai driving experience in the coming years.

The HIC – High-technology Intelligence Coupe – is based on the XG platform and is powered by a substantial 3.5-litre, V6 engine. Styled at Hyundai’s Japanese Design Center, this car is a testbed for futuristic technologies such as an intelligent distance-sensing cruise control system, which constantly keeps the vehicle at a safe distance from the vehicle in front. This stylish concept has also been given night visibility capabilities as well as a peripheral monitoring system, which uses CCTV to replace rearview mirrors and enable the driver to see around the complete car.

First seen at the Chicago Motor Show earlier this year, the deluxe 4.5-litre V8-engined HCD-7 concept saw its first viewing by the Korean public at the Seoul Show. Conceived and developed at Hyundai’s Californian Design studio, the HCD-7 was inspired by an aircraft fuselage which can be seen both inside the cabin and out with its smooth lines.
