The modern and futuristic design is not limited to the exterior, but flows into the interior too.
Hyundai states that three key concepts were embedded into the interior design: spiral sculpture, elegance and high-tech interface.
Modeled after a jet cockpit and incorporating the spiral sculpture philosophy, the interior showcases improved functionality, as well as appealing elegance.
The dash board is designed with the demanding driver in mind, using a high-tech interface to achieve the goal.
Even the steering wheel reflects a jet steering wheel’s inspiration, and follows the distinctive spiral theme. The sporty elegant seats are clothed in a luxurious and seemingly color changing mesh. The aviation influences bring to mind the speed at which a jet flies.
