Hyundai Motor once again demonstrated its passion when it comes to luxury and performance with the ‘Vision G’ Coupe Concept. Presented during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Vision G is a good example of how a design language can be evolved in order to encourage possible premium products in the future.
Under the hood of the Vision G lies one of the keys to its success -- the award-winning Tau 5.0-litre V8 engine. The engine is capable of a 420 horsepower output at 6,000 rpm with maximum torque of 383 lb. ft. at 5,000 rpm. Furthermore, the Tau V8 family of engines has managed to be named in Ward’s Ten Best Engines three times already.
The newest version of the engine now has an optimized intake runner, low-torque exhaust manifold, upgraded multiple-injection mapping, increased compression ratio, and the enhanced timing chain in order to reduce the noise, vibration, and harshness or NVH.
With this engine, the vehicle benefits from having excellent efficiency, low emissions and impressive power. By combining all these features and upgrades, flatter torque curve is produced at lower rpm to enhance driveability. Moving forward, the Vision G is expected to become the standard for new and upcoming technologies from Hyundai.
Technologies are aimed at giving maximum enjoyment and comfort to customers without causing too much distraction. Two such examples of this technology are the curved display and ‘Remote Wheel.’ The center facade has a curved display that can give detailed information.
Since the physical buttons have been removed, the cabin gets an innate and simple atmosphere. Meanwhile the ‘Remote Wheel’ is a semi-sphere haptic touchpad that is installed in the interior’s center console. It allows simple touch or even gesture interaction in order to activate.
Thus it can be done even with a simple wave of one’s hand, minimizing the distraction to the driver. In addition, the content can be displayed on either the center facade or the cluster depending on the preference of the driver. It also helps the driver keep watch of the road. The many safety and intelligent functions of the Hyundai like its Driver State Monitoring and Autonomous Driving System are implemented and included with the Vision G.
