VW Golf R Touch Concept arrives at 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES)

Volkswagen introduced at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) the Golf R Touch, a concept vehicle that features an infotainment system which incorporates gesture control. According to the German manufacturer the gesture control is the next step in the area of intuitive control and all you need is a hand movement in the space in front of the infotainment system in order to make human and machine interact as one.

What’s more interesting is that almost all the controls were implemented via touchscreens and sensor switches.

Moreover, the Golf R Touch Concept was equipped with three displays: a 12.8-inch high-resolution infotainment system touchscreen, a Control Center consisting of an 8.0-inch display with touch feedback arranged beneath it to control vehicle, climate control and media functions, as well as an Active Information Display (digitalized instruments, 12.3-inch).

According to the official press release, the layouts of the central touchscreen and the Active Info Display can also be customized, just like a smartphone or tablet.

Just like any other 2015 VW Golf R, the Golf R Touch Concept uses the same 2.0-liter direct-injection EA888 TSI engine producing 292 hp and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque.

Mated to a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Golf R accelerates from 0 to 62 mph (96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, with a top speed limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h. [source: Volkswagen]
