Big news to report here at Downtown Hyundai in Nashville, TN. The North American Concept Awards convened for their annual ceremonies recently, recognizing automakers that are producing innovative and envelope-pushing concept vehicles, and they awarded the Hyundai HCD-14 the very top honors.

Winning the Concept Car of the Year Award was a great accomplishment for Hyundai, as they beat out competitive concept models from both Honda and Toyota as well.

The new Hyundai concept was recognized by the panel of automotive journalists and bloggers for a number of reasons. They cited the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis for its futuristic and bold exterior design, cutting-edge features, and a top-notch driving experience. The HCD-14 Genesis is a fore-bearer of the future of Hyundai vehicles, and with features like thumb controls and gesture recognition, as well as navigation and infotainment features, the future of Hyundai looks very bright.

Bob Kroupa, one of the Principals of the Automotive Writers Group had this to say about the awards, "Hyundai's HCD-14 introduces future premium vehicle design, advanced 3-D gesture-based technology controls and spirited driving dynamics. Its rear hinged back doors and fastback coupe design, add to the WOW factor."1

Hyundai Execs were very pleased with the accomplishment as well. "Winning the 'Concept Car of the Year' validates our design intuition as we take our premium line-up to the next level of sophistication in styling and technological prowess,"2 said Chris Chapman, Chief Designer for the Hyundai North American Design Center.
