Drivers could soon use their smartphone to unlock their car and control their vehicle's entertainment system thanks to new technology from Hyundai.

The manufacturer says its new Connectivity Concept will make the cutting-edge technology accessible to a wide range of customers.

Hyundai showcased its new gadgets on an i30 to demonstrate how a smartphone can open a car wirelessly using near-field communication technology.

Users can then sync their own data and entertainment to the main screen in the car by placing the phone into a special cradle in the centre console, which also recharges the phone's battery.

The new system will be available from 2015. According to developers, it will also be accessible to multiple users.

Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and chief operating officer at Hyundai Motor Europe, said: "As the technology continually develops there will be capabilities to store driver's seating positions and exterior mirror settings, providing customers with a comfortable and individual driving environment."
