July 21, 2010 - Ahead of the much anticipated domestic launch of an all-new compact sedan, codenamed MD, Hyundai Motor Company has revealed the vehicles interior design concept call ‘Wind Craft’, a dynamic and futuristic direction aimed directly at a youthful generation.
The interior of the all-new MD has been revealed as striking and stylish, with a bold silver garnish originating at the crash pad and flowing to the console in a sculptured airstream-like contour. The combination high-gloss black and metallic finishes add a futuristic and high-tech aesthetics to the interior of MD.
Dynamic and refined elements include a four spoke steering wheel with finger tip control of audio and cruise control systems and a VFD (Vacuum Florescent Display) instrument cluster with two-cylinder design displaying key information with crystal clarity and minimal eye stress, illuminated in Hyundai’s signature blue hue.
Previewed at the 2010 Busan International Motor Show earlier this year, MD represents the latest incarnation of Hyundai’s signature ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ philosophy, and showcases the innovative GGDI (Gamma Gasoline Direct Injection) engine. Sporty with elegant lines, MD will deliver class-leading fuel efficiency and eco credentials.
“The MD’s ‘Wind Craft’ interior highlights the depth and potential of the new Hyundai design language.” said Hyundai Motor Company Australia's Director of Marketing Oliver Mann. “We look forward to MD joining the Hyundai’s award-winning model range in 2011.”
