    Geneva 2014: Hyundai Intrado Concept

    First Photos of Hyundai's Sporty Looking Intrado Concept
    FEBRUARY 21, 2014
    Carscoops

    The first real life images of Hyundai's new Intrado Concept car have surfaced / leaked on the internet. The Koreans had previously issued a press release accompanied by a teaser sketch of the athletic crossover model, which will be presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

    The three-door crossover has an aggressive exterior appearance and stance, with a curved front windshield and rear window, while the interior has an equally futuristic feel to it.

    It's a concept to show off Hyundai's technology - carbon-fibre construction and fuel-cell power

    It may also be testing reaction to their design - not dissimilar in some ways to the Nissan Juke and BMW X4/6.

    I like it, especially the "nose within a nose" first seen on the Centennial Corvette concept.

    Looks hideous. I can't imagine that ever going into production, but I thought the same with the ZDX/Crosstour.

    Re: Geneva 2014: Hyundai Intrado Concept

    It's interesting to see Hyundai's future design direction closely mimicking Audi's future design direction (as seen through recent concepts and a released sketch of the new TT) now that it's under control of former Audi design chief Peter Schreyer who left the brand in 2006. Notice how I said future and not current.
    I don't know if that shows Schreyer's continued dominance of the design theme at his former employer because it was so ahead of its time or if it's because Audi has had so little originality since he's left that they're coasting now.
    I'm going with a little bit from each camp.

    I'd really like to see something utilizing these design cues shrunken down into a hatch rather than being thrown onto another CUV. Something like that could make for a really cool Veloster successor.

    That design feature definitely did not debut on the Centennial Corvette concept...

    The 8 years since Peter Schreyer left Audi is a lifetime in car design terms - although not for Audi where every model looks the same and every generation does as well!

    Two different cars stacked on top of each other

    Yuck

    Although at least they seem to have lost the 15 different line along the side of the car approach which is a bonus

    No bumper seams up front so I'm guessing it gets toned down for production.

    I also like the name. Say it -- Intrado.

    It would be cool to say "I drive an Intrado."
