Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept

The Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis concept has the 5.0-liter Tau® V8 engine with direct injection and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission controlled by paddle shifters. The latest technology demonstrates driver eye-tracking and 3-D hand-gesture recognition. The HCD-14 Genesis is able to recognize driver commands free from the distractions associated with manual controls. Once a specific feature is selected via eye-tracking, thumb controls or gesture recognition can be used to select navigation, infotainment, audio, HVAC, and even smartphone connectivity functions.

John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America says "HCD-14 Genesis gives a hint of the design direction we’ll be taking, and an indication of the focus we’re placing on driving dynamics and technology.”
