Hyundai HCD-14 concept car revealed

This is the first glimpse of the Hyundai HCD-14 concept car, which will be unveiled at the 2013 Detroit motor show next week.

Hyundai has released very little information about the car, but it's expected to give a good idea of how the new US-market Genesis saloon will look.

The current Genesis model is slightly longer than a BMW 5 Series, so the new concept car is likely to be roughly the same size. The single image released shows a side window line and overall profile reminiscent of the Audi A7's, while the front of the car has echoes of the Mercedes CLS.

Hyundai says the HCD-14 concept car will give clues to 'future Hyundai premium vehicle design and advanced 3-D gesture-based technology controls'. It's due to be unveiled at 8pm on January 14.

We'll have full coverage from the 2013 Detroit motor show as it happens.
