Geneva Show 2012 Highlights: Magna Steyr MILA Coupic Concept


Automotive supply company Magna Steyr will unveil a new versatile concept study, the Mila Coupic, at the Geneva motor show.

The new study, which has been created to showcase Magna Steyr’s product design and engineering capabilities, aims to bring together three different vehicle concepts into one, and can be a SUV coupĂ©, pick-up or convertible.

Guenther Apfalter, president of Magna Steyr, said: “Our customers expect suppliers like Magna to bring them innovative solutions to help them meet the increasingly demanding challenges of this industry. The MILA Coupic multifunctional concept showcases vehicle functionality through flexible seating systems, roof modules and materials.”

The Coupic can accommodate five people. In its closed state, the vehicle features SUV-style characteristics and has a soft-top roof that gives it a coupé-like silhouette. The front and rear roof sections can be opened independently of each other due to two separate electronically operated roof modules.

The front roof system above the front seats can be opened from the front to the rear, and offering the driver and front-seat passenger an open-air experience. The rear roof system above the rear seats and the loading area allows for two opening directions.

The Coupic is the sixth concept car in the MILA family, following Mila 1 (an ecofriendly modular sports car), Mila 2 (a two-seat derivative of the first concept), Lounge (a hybrid ‘yacht on wheels’), Alpin (a compact off-roader) and Aerolight (a four-seat CNG-powered compact vehicle).
