From consumer's perspective:

What do our grandparents really want in their lives?       -Grandchildren can be one answer.

In the past:

They would want to spend their time with their grandchildren, but because of their limited mobility, they have to wait idly for their grandchildren to initiate contact.

In the future created by Hyundai:

The closest thing to being cared for is to care for someone else.

How can Hyundai boost customer royalty?       

From Hyundair's perspective:

1. Friendly appearance

As a family-oriented var, aeon has friendly appearance, which makes it easier for both grandparents and grandchildren to relate with.

2. Easy access

By having a door that opens upward, grandparents no longer need to bend in order to get in the car.

3. Interactive playground

Grandchildren can build their own playground inside the car while grandparents can sit on the sofa enjoying their time with their grandchildren.

4. Intuitive navigation system

Navigation system can be controlled on the armrest. Head-up display makes larger imagery and texts for grandparents possible.
