Hyundai reveals motorcycle-inspired Enduro Concept

At the 11th Seoul Motor Show Hyundai has revealed a compact crossover concept inspired by off-road motorcycles and aimed at exploring a possible design direction.


Codenamed  HND-12 the Enduro is characterized by a rugged look underlined by the black plastic wheelarches.

Measuring 4.27 meters in length, the four-seater would fit in the growing B-segment crossover segment.

The front end has a new interpretation of Hyundai’s design signature hexagonal front grille, with a lower center of gravity creating a sense of stability, while an aluminum aero blade connects the grille to the front fender.

Seen in profile, Enduro has the look of a crossover vehicle, with raised ground clearance, SUV-style fender cladding and a dark grey garnish to the lower parts of the car, which appear robust and protective, while expressing mobility and agility.

The C-pillars are fitted with a unique aerodynamic air-blade to reduce drag and the side-skirts incorporate step bars for easier loading / unloading of the roof rack.

At the rear, the combination lamps form a continuous flow between the C-pillar and the rear spoiler. Like the Enduro’s front fascia treatment, an aluminum bumper spoiler flows from the rear fender and rear bumper creating a visual connection, as well as embracing the fog lamps.

The interior features “organically interacting lines which generate an intensity that coexists with toughness and sophistication.”

The styling of the dashboard and center console feature the eye-catching combination of horizontal and vertical elements, which express sportiness, toughness and endurance.

The Enduro’s cabin seems to wrap around the driver’s seat in a manner that creates a dynamic atmosphere, while underscoring the solidity of the vehicle’s structure. Facing the driver, the instrument cluster concentrates a multitude of information in an integrated display that minimizes distraction through its driver-centric design.

Small details of the interior are exploited to reinforce the Enduro’s sporty and upbeat image. Visual elements reminiscent of sports equipment are applied to those cabin components and surfaces which occupants touch.

The steering wheel design features the spoke and handle molding of a road bike and the door handles have a lightweight cowl image of an off-road bike.

The design of the trunk turns it into a durable, flexible space, with versatile drawer-style compartments that can safely accommodate a broad range of lifestyle sports equipment.
