Hyundai Santa Fe Mountaineer Concept

Two other cars unveiled at the show quickly gathered public interest. The Coupe, known as the Tuscani on the domestic market, has had a make-over giving it the name of the Coupe Aero with a new, distinctive nose plus aggressive aerodynamic projection headlamps offering it a true sports feel. The Santa Fe Mountaineer is another exciting design exercise that has treated the original model to an even more rugged and sturdy front end, enhanced by sleek angular headlights.

Hyundai went on to lift the curtain on a new generation of telematics that is being developed in collaboration with computer giant IBM. Voice-operated and totally secure, the telematics portal opens up a whole new era of on-demand car computing that will provide services to make driving safer and more convenient.

Following the widespread public interest in the new cars and technology on the Hyundai stand in Seoul, Hyundai Chief Executive Officer Dong-Jin Kim said: "We have put a lot of work into our research and development efforts over the past few years and we are seeing the results of this."

He added: "Many of the things you see on these cars are now close to production and we will start seeing them on our cars very soon."
