Hyundai's concept keywords for the exterior design are 'Intersected Flow', featuring innovative and dynamic designs. The vehicle's condition is visible via unique and futuristic images on the exterior of the car through outside LED screen panels, which are located on both the front and rear of the car. blue² also features a welcome system which recognizes the driver, while an automatic opening door system enhances the driver's convenience.
