Hyundai Carlino- Exteriors

Hyundai Carlino or HND14 is a concept vehicle which showcases what Hyundai has in store for us in near future. This car, unlike most Fluidic design cars from the brand, has very aggressive and butch looks. It, however, does follow the design principles that we have seen on other Hyundai cars. The Hyundai Carlino compact SUV comes with a very aggressive front with a large grille, chunky bumpers and scuff plates under the bumper. The headlamps and fog lamps are sleek and are kind of geometric shapes which are more complex than usually seen on Hyundai cars.

The sides are characterized by huge chunky wheel arches, tall boy design, large wheels and muscular body lines. There is also a side body cladding running all across. The rear gets chunky and hexagonal tail lamps with a subtle side sweep, small and high tailgate glass, sporty-dual tone finish bumper and rear scuff plates. The rear of the Carlino looks very similar to the Jeep Renegade small SUV, especially bits like the tail lamps and rear windshield.
