In a week’s time, we’ll have an uncovered look at Hyundai’s newest concept, the HCD-14, but the silhouette should tell you all you need to know.
With a new Genesis on the horizon, the timing of the HCD-14 is interesting given that it’s a fairly radical departure from the rather conservative-looking Genesis. But as the current car aped a mid-2000’s German luxury sedan, then the new HCD-14/Genesis does a good job at copying the current German luxury aesthetic, embodied by cars like the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS. At least it’s better looking than the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe.
One unique feature of the HCD is a new system that allows the driver to control vehicle functions via hand gestures. For those of us who live in locales where poor drivers necessitate the frequent use of hand gestures, this could have many unintentional consequences.
