Hyundai introduces new, modular vehicle platform

Recommended Posts

Korean automaker Hyundai has unveiled a new, modular vehicle platform. It will be used in future European models from 2020 onwards.

The modular platform of Hyundai is for the first time in the eighth generation of the sedan Sonata (model year 2020) used, which, however, is not available from us. In Europe, starting in 2020, several vehicles will be built on the third-generation platform due to the modular design.

The modular platform is five percent lighter than the previous version and has a novel structure. Due to a special form hardening process of the steel elements used and a high-strength steel plate in the vehicle floor, it should have a very good crash safety. The new platform fixes the wheels in a staggered frontal crash so that the vehicle can not spin uncontrollably on the road.

 

 

Hyundai promises more driving pleasure

In addition to the increased rigidity and the overall center of gravity was lowered. In combination with the closer to the center of the front wheels positioned wishbones should result in a more agile handling and more precise steering of the new vehicles. In the field of aerodynamics, an airflow routed through the engine compartment and under the car floor improves driving stability and heat dissipation and results in lower air resistance.
