Detroit 2011: Hyundai Curb Concept

Hyundai has revealed a new concept car at the Detroit auto show, called Curb. The concept has been designed at Hyundai’s California design centre and according to the automaker, the inspiration came from the need to evolve Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture” design language for younger buyers.

The Curb is powered by Hyundai’s new 175bhp 1.6-litre Gamma inline-four mated to a dual-clutch transmission. Exterior highlights are big 22-inch five spoke alloys fitted with Michelin tyres, exhaust vents that open to reveal a bike rack, a pop-up roof rack, glass roof, and tiny rear hinged rear doors for easier access.

Part of the package is also Hyundai’s new Blue Link technology that will keep owners connected with their electronic systems at all times.
