Hyundai Debuts Radical Enduro Concept in Seoul

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 4/3/2015 Kelly Pleskot

At the same time Hyundai is debuting a U.S-spec Tucson in New York, it is also bringing out an interesting concept for the Seoul auto show in Korea. The Enduro crossover concept is "the professional gear for drivers wanting to escape from the ordinary," according to Hyundai. Check and mate.

Research

The Enduro Concept looks like a Veloster despite really trying to look like an SUV, complete with a raised suspension, step bars, silver roof rack, protective dark grey garnish on bottom, and some intense fender cladding. The three-door model also features a unique interpretation of Hyundai's signature hexagonal grille that now has a lower center of gravity. Also catching our eye is an aluminum aero blade that connects the front fender to the grille.

Notice the model doesn't have any outside mirrors, opting instead for side- and rearview cameras connected to a display in the overhead console inside the car. Rear seats can be folded down in different ways to increase cargo room.

Although the model is just a concept for now, Hyundai says it would be paired with a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline direct-injected engine and a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

Besides debuting the Enduro concept, Hyundai is also showing off a number of production cars for Korea. The Tucson, Sonata, Sonata plug-in, RM15 coupe, Mighty truck, and Solati minibus are also making appearances at the Seoul motor show right now.

Should the U.S. get something like the Enduro if it ends up being produced?
