Dodge Set to Unveil Hornet Concept Car

February 16, 2006

Combining “European sensibility” and “American flair,” Dodge is set to unveil the new front-drive Hornet concept car later this month at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. The Hornet is powered by a 1.6-liter OHC supercharged four-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and is characterized by a signature Dodge crossbar grille set above an exposed engine intercooler flanked by front brake air ducts and foglamps. A recessed scoop on the driver side funnels air to the engine air box. In addition, the Hornet is outfitted with 19-inch open-section aluminum wheels designed to show off its mechanicals, including gold-colored brake calipers. The B-pillarless Hornet is said to be inspired "by the look of fashion sunglasses," according to a Dodge press release. All glass in the vehicle, including the sunroof, is rendered in a deep blue tint that contrasts with the car's Liquid Silver exterior.Inside, both the passenger front bucket seat and the three-passenger rear seats fold forward and collapse to the floor to provide a flat load bed. The rear seats flip rearward to stow in back, flush with the liftgate sill. The modular instrument panel is designed to accommodate both left- and right-hand drive.The Hornet is Dodge’s attempt to break into the European market and expand its global reach.
