The vehicle features a gently-sloping silhouette at a 45-degree angle. Its exposed wheels and a low-lying frame give it a dynamic character. One can easily make out long, straight lines stretching at an angle across the car’s body – a look shared with Hyundai's 45 concept car.

Hyundai says that the term "soapbox" refers to a motorless, gravity-propelled vehicle that was traditionally raced by children on a downhill road. Originally made from discarded wooden soap crates, today most of these boast more modern and sophisticated designs. They are particularly popular in Europe and North America, where many soapbox derbies take place.
