Car Tech Video: Hyundai unveils the stylized Genesis Concept

2:07 /

Featuring an eye-tracking, gesture-controlled cockpit and a unique grill, Hyundai unveiled at the 2013 Detroit auto show a stylish concept sedan called the HCD-14 that gives us a look at where the company sees its Genesis model going.

What's up, guys? This is Antuan Goodwin with cnet.com. Again, on the floor at 2013 Detroit Auto Show. We're taking a look at the Hyundai HCD-14 concept. Now, I don't know what those numbers mean. Let's just call it the next Genesis Sedan. It's basically a styling exercise to kinda give us an idea of what the next generation of Hyundai's top tier, sort of premium Sedan is gonna look like. And we're seeing a lot of interesting things happening here. For starters, we've got a very sort of aggressive Audi A7 like roof line that kind of sweeps over the front of the car and punctuate which is very aggressive front end. It's like everything is big here, gigantic LED headlights and fog lamps, a big Chrysler [unk] grill. I mean, when you've got this Genesis wing badge, this thing is more Chrysler Bentley that any Chrysler Bentley concept we've seen in a while. Underneath the hood is the 5.0 liter Tau engine that we saw in the Hyundai Genesis R-spec but that's not really the big story here. What we're really interested in is the cabin. Now, behind those suicide style doors that open wide and give you an unobstructed view into the cabin, we've got a dashboard interface that doesn't have any buttons. Now, how do you interact with it? Well, with your eyes and with gestures, it's got eye-tracking technology, so as you look around at heads up display, it actually selects icon for you. You've also got gesture controls so you can do things like flick through your radio presets or grabbing invisible knob to adjust the volume of the radio or zoom in and out of the map, just by moving your hand back and forth. It's all extremely conceptual but very cool in the demonstration video Hyundai have shown us. Now, it'll probably be a very long time before we start seeing eye-tracking and gesture control at any car on the road and the next Genesis may not even end up looking anything like that. But as a standalone concept, this HCD-14 is pretty sweet looking. I'm Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com on the floor at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
