Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past few years, you probably know that the hottest segment among luxury automakers is the four-door coupe. Mercedes has its CLS Class range, Porsche has its Panamera line, Audi has the A7 and S7 and BMW now has its 6 Series Gran Coupe (and M6 Gran Coupe) models. Now, Hyundai has its HCD-14 Concept, due to debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and previewing the next Genesis sedan--or an addition to its range.
The latest--in the form of two new images and confirmation that the HCD-14 is, in fact, Genesis-related--comes straight from Hyundai's American chief, John Krafcik, via Twitter. In addition to being a Genesis of some sort, the HCD-14 also presages the future design direction of the brand's luxury offerings.
For this year’s Detroit Auto Show, Hyundai is rolling out what clearly looks to be a new four-door coupe design, called the HCD-14, that Hyundai says “offers a glimpse into future Hyundai premium vehicle design, advanced 3-D gesture-based technology controls, and spirited driving dynamics.”
