Understanding the Hyundai Superstructure
A Very Rigid and Very Secure Structure
You may have heard recently about the Hyundai SuperStructure system. Unveiled for the first time on the new Hyundai Elantra, Hyundai’s SuperStructure is now on other models in the range and should also appear on all new models offered by the Korean manufacturer in the coming years. But what is it exactly? Let’s take a closer look.
To understand Superstructure technology, we must first point out that Korean manufacturer Hyundai is not just a car manufacturer. Hyundai is also a steel manufacturer which allows them to have access to high-strength steel at a more affordable cost. This has allowed the company to develop a structure built from this type of steel at a price that makes it possible to use in a wide range of models.
Improved Safety, Comfort, and Performance
The end result is impressive. In fact, the Hyundai Superstructure structure is 32% stiffer compared to a similar steel structure. This offers many benefits including improved safety, comfort, performance and fuel economy.
To start, a stiffer structure will be more efficient on the road. It reduces the vibrations that filter to the driver and it will also improve interior quietness. In addition, it is more impact resistant and thus better protects the driver and his or her passengers. Finally, high-strength steel reduces the weight of the vehicle and therefore improves fuel consumption.
With its SuperStructure technology, Hyundai really stands out from its competition, there is no doubt. To learn more about the SuperStructure system, contact us today at Surgenor Hyundai!
