The ease of swiping.
The future belongs to connected and intuitive cars. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January, Volkswagen presented the Golf R Touch. It is the first compact model worldwide whose control elements can be directed using gesture control. The car understands hand gestures and translates them into commands. This makes it possible to control signals and functions using hand gestures without going near a touchscreen. A swipe toward the front windscreen, for example, causes the sliding roof to close, while swiping away from the windscreen opens it. Seat adjustment is equally smart. The vehicle enables driver and machine to function as an interactive unit, thus making it a major highlight in Las Vegas.
