Hyundai Hexa Space Concept MPV (HND 7) Details and Features

Hexa Space code named HND-7 features eight slim, hexagonally shaped seats that fit together like puzzle pieces, maximizing internal space while minimizing vehicle width. From actual honeycombs to the use of this shape in architecture the hexagon is known as an optimum shape for space efficiency. It is targeted at urban customers in their 30s and 40s who have a demanding lifestyle and who live in bustling cities of the world’s emerging economies. These customers need their vehicles to serve many roles and Hexa Space satisfies those needs with its unique seat design. Like the new Sonata it is built on the principles of “Fluidic Sculpture” which gives its bold character lines on the side panels.

The seats offer multiple configurations for seating – center seats fold flat for greater comfort, the second row folds flat to create a limousine function, the back row folds flat for light-cargo use. In addition, seven seats fold flat for heavy hauling and all eight fold flat for camping. Despite the roomy interior Hexa Space maintains a narrow overall width, key for maneuvering in the crowded streets.
