The Hyundai ix-onic concept

22 Feb 2009

The Hyundai ix-onic concept

A sensational concept car will be the highlight of Hyundai’s stand and is packed with technology which make it more fuel efficient than some superminis.


Designed to assertive but not aggressive, the ix-onic (pronounced “ik-sonnik”) combines dynamic styling with an environmentally-friendly power train and thoughtful everyday utility. It creates a vehicle that will change the way consumers think about compact crossover vehicles.

Key attributes of Hyundai’s ‘dynamic sculpture’ design philosophy are the athleticism and sophistication that ix-onic demonstrates through its dynamic and flowing lines. These are emphasised by specially developed, high-contrast exterior paint. Employing an advanced-effect pigment, the innovative paint gives the car’s skin a brilliant shine.

Beneath its sensational exterior, the ix-onic’s power train is equipped with a 170PS, 1.6-litre GDi turbocharged, four-cylinder petrol engine, with ISG (Idle Stop & Go) technology and a double-clutch six-speed transmission.  Power is transferred to the road by an intelligent four-wheel drive system fine-tuned to deliver outstanding on-road driving dynamics, together with significant off-road ability. The next-generation, eco-friendly engine emits just 149 g/km of CO2, an impressive figure for an SUV and comparable with conventional hatchbacks and superminis.
