Touchscreen, natural language and vision interaction. 

These will be the main modalities for in-car interaction within the next 5 years (for example see: Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo)

1) The number of physical buttons will be reduced significantly (for examples see: new Ford Focus, VW Touareg & Tesla Model 3)

2) Rotary controllers will be phased out (for examples that abandoned the rotary controller see: new Mercedes A-Class and Audi A8)

3) Air gestures will have limited functionality, more of a technology demonstration rather than the main way to interact with the car.

Other technologies to watch: 

a) Windscreen Head-Up-Display with augmented reality features

b) "Smart glass" surfaces with displays embedded into glass (panoramic roof, windscreen, etc.) 

c) Virtual reality as an enabler for passenger entertainment
