Volkswagen has revealed the Golf R Touch concept at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The German automaker says the Golf R Touch concept presents the interior cabin of its future models. It features an infotainment system that “incorporates gesture control” and comes with a larger touchscreen display. Volkswagen says the infotainment system installed in the Golf R Touch concept was designed to reduce driver distractions.

The concept is equipped with three displays including a high-resolution 12.8-inch infotainment touchscreen along with an 8-inch Control Center placed beneath the climate control area. It also has a 12.3-inch Active Information Display that has digitized instruments. Through these displays, the vechicle functions of the Golf R concept can be accessed via touchscreen alone.

Volkswagen says the layouts of the central touchscreen and the Active Info Display can be customized depending on the occupant's preference. Moreover, the gesture control system uses a 3D camera located within the roof lining. With this, the digital controls for the sunroof will be displayed on the 12.8-inch infotainment touchscreen. By moving your hand from front to rear, the sunroof will open and when you want to close it simply do the reverse movement.
