World-first technology to debut in Korean-market G70
Genesis has unveiled the world's first 3D digital instrument display, which is set to debut on the 2019 model year G70 sedan in its home market of Korea.
The screen measures 12.3 inches across, and uses cameras to track the driver's eye movements. The use of stereoscopy gives the driver an illusion of depth, without the need for multiple screens or 3D glasses.
Three different display modes will be offered, with users being able to choose between 'modern', 'space' or 'edge' themes.
The screen's display will also change based on which of the car's five drive modes the user has selected, with options for 'Comfort', 'Sport', 'Smart', 'ECO' and 'Custom'.
Additional features for the display will include a lap-timer and a G-force status indicator. Users are able to turn off the 3D functionality if desired.
The Genesis G70 is powered by the choice of a 185kW, 353Nm turbocharged petrol, 148kW, 441Nm turbo-diesel or 272kW, 510Nm 3.3 litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine.
The Genesis G70 is set for an Australian debut in the before the end of this year. It is unclear whether Australian-delivered G70s will feature the 3D display.
