Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept

This concept serves to show the new design direction for a new generation of rear-wheel drive premium vehicles of the South Korean brand, and will serve as a basis for the future Genesis.

The engine chosen for this concept was the award-winning Hyundai Tau® V8 with 5.0liters, direct injection and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT), connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

The ultra-rigid chassis uses high-tensile steel to allow for an extremely rigid structure allowing a better drive and a five-link front and rear suspension for an improved ride control.

Another interesting feature are the rear-hinged rear doors that allow for an easier entry and exit. And inside we can see that were taken various security measures to keep the driver more careful. The Hyundai includes an eye-tracking, 3D hand gesture based controls to select navigation, infotainment, audio, HVAC, and even smartphone connectivity functions, and a windshield heads-up display (HUD) for minimal driving distractions.
