New Dodge Hornet concept car

Car Concept : New Dodge Hornet Concept Cars

Here are some news about the new Dodge Hornet concept car 2007. Dodge says that its Hornet B-segment concept car is "an ideal combination of American fun and European function."

Rallye-ready and eager to go, the new Dodge Hornet concept vehicle is designed to bring to the B-segment market a unique blending of European sensibility regarding engine size and overall footprint with an American flair for aggressive attitude and flexible interior space.
"We wanted the Dodge Hornet prototype to be dynamic, nimble, fun to drive, and have an adaptable space-efficient interior," said Mark Moushegian, Principal Exterior Designer. "At the same time we set out to create a vehicle with a uniquely American character to expand the image and presence of the Dodge brand in Europe and international markets, especially in the entry-level market."

With its wide stance, the Hornet concept is solidly planted on the road. Up front, the signature Dodge crossbar grille is set above an exposed engine intercooler flanked by front brake air ducts and fog lamps. The raised plateau on the hood features a recessed scoop on the driver's side to funnel air to the engine air box. Underhood is a 1.6L 16-valve OHC supercharged I/C four-cylinder engine putting out 127 kW (170 hp)/224 N•m (165 lb.-ft.) of torque @ 4000 rpm.

Inspired by the look of fashion sunglasses, all the glass in the new Dodge Hornet concept car , including the oversize sunroof, is rendered in a deep "Blue View" tint which contrasts vividly with the car's Liquid Silver exterior.

Looks like a lot of fun, but might be on the girly side. They should rethink that ugly front bumper... looks too bulky.
