Here’s a hint of the future, from Hyundai.

Hyundai New Zealand says the striking interior design concept of an all-new compact sedan just released in Korea points to the award-winning brand’s future look.

Hyundai labels the design concept ‘Wind Craft’, a dynamic and futuristic direction aimed directly at a youthful generation. First up, it’s seen in the new model codenamed MD.

“Wind Craft highlights the depth and potential of Hyundai’s new design language,” explains Tom Ruddenklau, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai New Zealand.

“This is the future, arriving now. Expect to see this approach across Hyundai models in coming years.”

The interior of the all-new MD is as striking as it is stylish, with a bold silver garnish originating at the crash pad and flowing to the console in a sculptured airstream-like contour. The combination high-gloss black and metallic finishes adds a futuristic and high-tech aesthetic to the interior.

Dynamic and refined elements include a four-spoke steering wheel with fingertip control of audio and cruise control systems and a VFD (Vacuum Florescent Display) instrument cluster with two-cylinder design displaying key information with crystal clarity and minimal eye stress, illuminated in Hyundai’s signature blue hue.

Previewed at the 2010 Busan International Motor Show, MD represents the latest incarnation of Hyundai’s signature ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ philosophy, and showcases the innovative GGDI (Gamma Gasoline Direct Injection) engine.

Sporty with elegant lines, MD will deliver class-leading fuel efficiency and eco credentials.

It is expected in New Zealand in 2011.
