Does anyone have an iPad? Hyundai’s clean-up on aisle six Concept proves that all the sales momentum in the world can’t prevent the occasional tone-deaf design study. Or an unfortunately hilarious nomenclature. Given the recent improvements in Hyundai’s production car styling, the i-flow concept is something of a look back to the wild “emotion lines” of its late 90s design work. In short, not a step forward. Meanwhile, despite achieving true originality in its ugliness, the i-flow also manages to incorporate the same weird sedan-hatch-coupe packaging as the Opel Flextreme, Mercedes F800 Style, and Subaru Hybrid Tourer. Back to the drawing board!

    Don't get cocky, Hyundai! Now - if you could make the front doors slide the way the back doors do, then you'd have my interest. This car looks like they read the Euro pedestrian safety requirements and then proceeded to violate all of them in order.

  • Lou_BC "15mpg EPA" The 2023 ZR2 Colorado is supposed to be 16 mpg
  • ToolGuy "The more aerodynamic, organic shape of the Mark VIII meant ride height was slightly lower than before at 53.6 inches, over 54.2” for the Mark VII."• I am not sure that ride height means what you think it means.Elaboration: There is some possible disagreement about what "ride height" refers to. Some say ground clearance, some say H point (without calling it that), some say something else. But none of those people would use a number of over 4 feet for a stock Mark anything.Then you go on to use it correctly ("A notable advancement in the Mark VIII’s suspension was programming to lower the ride height slightly at high speeds, which assisted fuel economy via improved aerodynamics.") so what do I know. Plus, I ended a sentence with a preposition. 🙂
  • ToolGuy The dealer knows best. 🙂
  • ToolGuy Cool.
  • ToolGuy This truck is the perfect size, and the fuel economy is very impressive.-This post sponsored by ExxonMobil
