Auto Shows, Events  /   /  By eBay Motors

Hyundai used the North American International Auto Show in Detroit for the global unveiling of the HCD-14 concept sedan that provides a first look at the design direction for future luxury sedans. Elements will show up on the production model of the next-generation Genesis full-size that will be shown next year at the Detroit show according to John Krafcik, CEO of Hyundai Motor America. “And cues will make it into the Equus in the future.”

The rear-drive HCD-14 concept has a bold front fascia with a deep grille on a car that is long and sleek with large wheels.

“We instilled HCD-14 Genesis with a premium-sport 4-door coupe road presence,” said Christopher Chapman, chief designer, Hyundai Design North America.

The car has a rigid chassis, 5-liter direct-injection V8 and 8-speed transmission.

Inside the car, traditional buttons and knobs are replaced by eye-tracking, thumb controls and 3-D hand gestures to access the car’s navigation and infotainment system. The windshield heads-up display is designed to minimize distraction and keep eyes on the road. The interface is Hyundai’s vision for future vehicles.
