The Hyundai Curb concept was one of the highlights of the Hyundai stand at the 2011 North American International Auto Show.

The Hyundai Curb is a compact SUV with dynamic styling and an extremely short glasshouse which gives it a sporty, aggressive appearance.

On the door panels is a prominent style line in the shape of an upside-down tick. This works nicely within the overall shape of the concept, and it helps inject some interest into the vehicle when viewed in profile.

The interior of the Hyundai Curb is far less production feasible than the exterior. Whereas the exterior could quite easily be tamed down for a future production model, the science-fiction interior is sadly just too swoopy and space-age for the current generation of buyers. Although the asymmetric steering wheel is a nice touch that would be good to see on a production version in the near future.

"We wanted the Curb to be urban tough without looking like a Brink's truck," said Jason Brown, Hyundai designer. "City driving was going to be its forte, not crossing the Rubicon trail, but we wanted it to have urban armor for daily driving on city streets. It needed to empower its passengers in this setting."

The Hyundai Curb is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) four-cylinder engine mated to Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG). This powertrain develops 175 horsepower and 169 lb. ft. of torque. By adding Idle Stop and Go (ISG) technology, the Curb would deliver 30+ miles per gallon in the city and 40+ miles per gallon on the highway.
