X Convertible concept
Earlier this week, the Hyundai Genesis X Convertible concept made its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It’s the last design in the X series of two-door concepts. This model uses the same platform as the other X siblings, but it also incorporates some new technologies.
The concept features a unique folding hardtop roof. It also includes a moon roof above the front occupants. The rear end features quad taillights, which are a trademark of Genesis. The concept also features a ‘wrap around’ instrument panel that features a portrait-oriented touchscreen. The concept also features a high-performance sound system, developed by sound master Guk-il Yu.
The concept also features an “anti-wedge parabolic” design, which makes the vehicle appear to be “floating.” This is a design element that was inspired by internal feedback from Genesis. It is also an example of the brand’s commitment to sustainable design. The concept incorporates recycled materials.
The concept’s interior features a woven pad graphic made from recyclable wool fabric. It contrasts with smooth leather seating surfaces.
