Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept surprises Detroit

Hyundai has officially revealed the HCD-14 Genesis Concept at 2013 NAIAS in Detroit, following last week's teaser.

The stunning concept is a preview of the next-gen Genesis and shows a four-door coupe silhouette. It features an "ultra-rigid" chassis with high-tensile steel in strategic areas, along with a multi-mode power steering system which should enhance the driver-centric experience. Riding on low-profile tires, the concept is powered by the firm's 5.0-liter Tau V8 direct-injection engine connected to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Inside it has a windshield head-up display "sitting" above the steering wheel which keeps the driver up to date with relevant info. The concept also benefits from an eye-tracking and interactive 3D gesture recognition system helping the driver keep his hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road, thus improving safety by reducing distractions.

As the images show, the HCD-14 comes with rear-hinged rear doors which make entering the vehicle a breeze, not so common among four-door coupes.
