Hyundai's HCD10 Hellion concept is a compact three-door ute that can tackle hardcore off-roading equally as well on-road duty, at least, that's what the press release says. One thing's for sure, it's not going to win any beauty contests, and even Hyundai seems to be distancing itself a bit from it, calling it the 'black sheep of the Hyundai family.'
Hellion's rally-style hood scoop signals there's something serious going on in the engine bay, and indeed, a 3.0-liter V-6 common-rail diesel engine pumping out 236 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. torque is tucked into the engine bay, more than enough grunt for this compact ute. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with 4WD. Hellion also sports a removable canvas stop-top roof and a host of interesting interior additions including a removable, refillable reservoir inside each headrest with a hose that you can use to drink from that Hyundai is billing as a replacement for the cupholder. We'll probably just keep our cups.
