You’ll Never Guess The Badge On This Svelte Grand Tourer!

Hyundai says the Le Fil Rouge is a design study that provides a glimpse into the carmaker’s future


  • The Le Fil Rouge was first showcased at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
  • It is a reinterpretation of the Hyundai Coupe Concept from 1974.
  • It gets suicide doors like the Rolls Royce Phantom.

First unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the Le Fil Rouge has made its India debut at the ongoing Auto Expo 2020. Hyundai claims it is a glimpse into its future, but the Le Fil Rouge also combines various elements from the carmaker’s past and present. 

The name ‘Le Fil Rouge’ is a French word which translates to “common thread”. The concept is also a reinterpretation of the Hyundai Coupe Concept from 1974. In the flesh, the most dominating character of the concept is obviously it's hunkered down stance and that massive cascading  grille. There’s a sharp character line that flows to the rear. All in all, the Le Fil Rouge is an interesting looking concept although we wish that grille was a bit smaller. 

The cabin also follows a futuristic design language with a centre console that extends all the way to the rear. The cabin is finished in white and features a wide array of screens. But the most notable feature has to be those suicide doors. 

Apart from the Le Fil Rouge, Hyundai also showcased the Grand i10 Nios Turbo, facelifted Tucson, the i30N, and the Kite concept.
