At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Volkswagen unveiled the Golf R Touch Concept which previews a cabin design for future models - including a new gesture-controlled infotainment system. VW says the package was created to reduce driver distractions while providing maximum personalization and intuitive operation of all vehicle functions.

The Golf R Touch features a trio of highly legible graphic screens. Borrowing a page from Audi, the main instrument cluster is a programmable 12.3-inch Active Information Display. The Golf R Touch also features a 12.8-inch hi-res infotainment system touchscreen - also programmable - and an 8.0-inch Control Center display with haptic feedback. Beyond the displays, the interior ambient lighting can also be changed to accommodate the owner's preferences.

As a final flourish, the new infotainment package in the Golf R Touch also incorporates gesture control capability that allows its on-board cameras to see and interpret the motions of an operator's hands. This advance makes it possible for the driver to do things like activate the sunroof or adjust the seats without having to use the touchscreen or conventional mechanical controls.
