At the Frankfurt Motor Show Hyundai will be introducing the New i20 Active and New Santa Fe, joining the brand’s youngest-ever line-up in Europe, with all models being less than two years old. Hyundai will be the first in Europe to offer Android Auto smartphone mirroring technology in the New i40.
Hyundai will also show its design skills through the Vision G coupe concept car, offering a glimpse of Hyundai’s design evolution and future premium products.
New i20 Active – a rugged crossover for urban adventure
The new i20 Active has an individual design and a bigger adaptability for customers with adventurous lifestyles. The model will go on sale in Europe from early 2016. Its unique rugged crossover features like the skid plates on the front and rear and cladding on the wheel arches set it apart from conventional B-segment models and heighten its appeal for new customers.
New Santa Fe – a refined and innovative SUV package
The New Santa Fe premieres with design enhancements and an advanced range of new active safety, comfort and convenience features. The popular SUV is Hyundai Motor’s longest-running model in Europe and has become one of the brand’s iconic nameplates, having built a reputation for sophistication and premium quality.
The New Santa Fe’s refined profile creates an athletic, modern presence to reflect the latest Hyundai family look. Inside the cabin, subtle design upgrades and new materials emphasise its status as the brand’s flagship SUV.
A host of new active safety and comfort features are being introduced on the car, including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert, Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and High Beam Assist all adding to further enhance driver convenience and safety.
Hyundai Motor introduces Android Auto for enhanced connectivity
Hyundai is the first car manufacturer worldwide to introduce Android Auto in its US Hyundai Sonata earlier this year. Now Hyundai Motor will be among the first in Europe to include the smartphone-based mirroring software in one of its cars when it is introduced to the New i40 in November 2015.
Android Auto enables users of smartphones with Android technology to connect their devices to the screen of Hyundai’s infotainment unit, to access native and third -party apps focused primarily on music streaming, communication and radio services. Android Auto makes use of smartphone capabilities to give Hyundai drivers new ways to stay connected, while staying focused on the road.
Vision G – an imagination of future design and technology
With the new Vision G coupe concept, Hyundai is introducing the next level design within the brand and also presents advanced connectivity and control technologies. In order to develop such a unique ‘sling-shot’ design, Hyundai collaborated with all its Design Centres around the world. New features such as a sweeping touch screen display with a curved screen add sophistication to the calm, high-quality interior.
Hyundai Motor’s press conference will take place in Hall 6 at 11:30 CET on Tuesday 15 September 2015.
