With a rear-hinged back-door, the HCD-14's cabin opens wide revealing seating for four adults in four bucket seats separated by a spinelike center console that flows from the dashboard to the rear bulkhead.
You'll notice a very organic design for the HCD-14's cabin that contrasts with the precise design of the exterior. The dashboard flows into the doors and center console, making good use of leather, wood, and a few hints of carbon fiber. However, you may also notice a lack of buttons, dials, and rectangular displays.
The HCD-14 Genesis concept makes use of eye-tracking technology in concert with a head-up display located near the center of the windshield. Drivers can select different areas of the infotainment system by simply glancing at the right icon and confirming with the control knob.
A gesture control system also works with the infotainment system, allowing drivers to change radio presets by waving a hand, adjust volume by twisting an imaginary knob, zoom in on a map by moving a hand closer to the screen, and a host of other commands.
We expect the next-generation Genesis sedan to include the HCD-14's LED front and rear lighting, the 5.0-liter Tau V-8 engine (which already makes an appearance in the current generation Genesis R-Spec), and the Audi-alike profile and design.
The production Genesis may also ditch the rear bench in favor of reclining rear bucket -- we've seen such a configuration on the automaker's Equus flagship -- but it's unlikely that Hyundai will want to give up the extra seating capacity.
