Hyundai Portico Concept
Here’s the pitch: Mommy and Daddy get a boring car when they have kids and trade up into larger boring cars as the sweet little young’uns become surly teens. During this 20-year time span, the family car is an appliance utterly devoid of style, appeal, and emotion. The Hyundai Portico Concept, the theory goes, is a refined, stylish, fun-to-drive family vehicle of the future, able to transition from one life stage to the next without skipping a beat or forgetting that many people can’t get past the notion that they somehow are what they drive.
In other words, it’s Korea’s idea of a Chrysler Pacifica, Ford Freestyle, or even the upcoming Mazda 5.
