Magna Steyr to Unveil Three-in-One Vehicle Concept Study at Geneva Motor Show 2012 MILA Coupic demonstrates unique product design and engineering capabilities GRAZ, Austria, Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Magna International Inc., the world’s most diversified automotive supplier, has announced that its Magna Steyr operating unit will unveil the MILA Coupic concept study at the Geneva Motor Show 2012. The MILA Coupic is a design study which brings together three different vehicle concepts into one. The sixth concept car in the MILA innovation family, the MILA Coupic is a dynamic SUV coupé which can be transformed into a sporty pick-up or an open-air convertible. “The MILA Coupic is a great illustration of the unique product design and engineering capabilities we can deliver to customers,” said Guenther Apfalter, President of Magna Steyr. “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.” 3-in-1 Vehicle Concept MILA Coupic combines three different vehicle concepts in one–the sporty elegance of a SUV coupé, the full functionality of a robust pick-up, and the secure open-air feeling of a convertible. With its unique adaptability, the MILA Coupic opens up a completely new independent niche in the sports segment. This novel vehicle concept provides room for up to five persons. In its closed state, the vehicle features the full dynamism of an SUV. The innovative soft top provides for an unusual visual effect of the coupé silhouette. Large glass panels in the soft folding roof not only invest the vehicle with a perfectly shaped appearance on the outside, but also allow passengers to keep everything in view in an incomparable ambience. The front and rear roof sections of the MILA Coupic can be opened independently of each other due to two separate roof modules. In this way the passengers can enjoy a classic open-air experience.
