Hyundai unveils the new Vision T Concept plug-in hybrid at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Vision T is the 7th study design that the Hyundai Design Center has made to showcase the next-generation design language of the South Korean automotive manufacturer.
The next-generation design language is called Sensuous Sportiness. It will be used as Hyundai’s global design language for the Korean carmaker’s future models, such as the upcoming Hyundai Tucson.
The Vision T takes the shape of a compact crossover. The concept car has a muscular and angular side profile, this is combined with a large and imposing grille at the front. If the grille design looks familiar, it’s because the elements have already been used in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata.
The concept vehicle also features a unique set of headlights. Instead of taking a slimmer and horizontal approach, the Vision T takes a different approach with a short horizontal spread and a vertical length that stands out. The headlights extend from the very top of the grille all the way down to the lower bumper of the vehicle. This new combination adds to the vehicle’s futuristic look.
Moving over to the rear of the vehicle. The roofline sweeps down and ends with a hatch-mounted rear spoiler. The roofline is further accented by a light silver accent that runs from the front of the vehicle and terminates at the C-pillar. The tail lamps come in a two-layer horizontal form factor. Topping off the rear tail lamps is the small red LED line that links the two housings together. Like the sides, the rear also continues the muscular and angular design elements.
If the Vision T really is a hint at the future of Hyundai's design language, then the future is looking bright for the Korean car maker’s next-generation units.
