The elegantly-styled profile that you see in the shadowed teaser shot belongs to Hyundai's new HCD-14 concept vehicle.

You'll get to see it from all angles when Hyundai officially pulls the covers off of it at the Detroit motor show next week, but for now let's consider the possibilities.

Hyundai says that it's a “glimpse into future Hyundai premium vehicle design, advanced 3-D gesture-based technology controls, and spirited driving dynamics.”

Our guess is that it's a thinly veiled version of the next Hyundai Genesis, a rear-wheel drive sedan designed to compete with the BMW 5 Series.

The current Genesis is hardly a looker in four-door form. But if our assumption is correct, the Germans might just have something to worry about. -IOL Motoring Staff
