Hyundai’s designer manager, John Krsteski

Genesis car designer

John Krteski, Design Manager at Hyundai Design North America, talked to Lou Ann Hammond,, about the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

Not only are there four doors on this coupe, but they are suicide doors, something that won’t be coming out in a production vehicle.

Most designers talk design, but Krteski showed us the newest technology that Hyundai is working on, a heads-up display that incorporates eye tracking and hand gesture.

Like other car companies, Hyundai is using less of the sun-glaring chrome in the places that blind you when the sun hit’s it, like the dash and steering wheel. What are they using instead?
