Hyundai Motor received two Red Dot Product Design Awards for its recently-launched All-New Genesis and New Generation i10 in the Vehicles category. The internationally acclaimed Red Dot Awards recognize aesthetic form, innovation and ground-breaking ideas. The two Hyundai winners were chosen from an entry list of 4,815 products from 53 countries.
This year’s influential Red Dot jury consisted of 37 experts from 24 countries, all independent qualified designers, university professors or journalists – and this year included design star Jimmy Choo for the first time. The selection of the Hyundai All-New Genesis and New Generation i10 marks the first Red Dot Design Award win for a production Hyundai model.
Hyundai’s New Generation i10 features sleek and substantial lines which emphasize its naturally-athletic stance while All-New Genesis is defined by elegant proportions and clean lines that reflect its natural poise and superior driving dynamics.
The Hyundai All-New Genesis and New Generation i10 will be celebrated at the traditional Red Dot Gala and subsequent Designers’ Night. A winners’ exhibition will present both cars to a wide audience from July 8 to Aug. 3, 2014, before they enter the museum’s permanent exhibition.
Design is now one of the key reasons customers choose Hyundai cars. The Red Dot honor follows an iF Product Design Award 2014 for All-New Genesis. A range of awards have also been given to New Generation i10 since the car’s launch in late 2013, underscoring the car’s wide range of abilities and delivery of value beyond expectations.
