Changes for 2017/2018?

I'm targeting a used 2016/2017/2018 Hyundai Genesis/Genesis G80, but can’t find a list of what changed year over year, so hoping all here can assist.

It looks like 2015/2016 models were identical. 2017 was the first year as a G80, but still no changes from 2015/2016. 2018 seems to offer a revised front facia new trans handle, and the Sport trim with the Singer’s 3.3T engine.



If anyone can advise of year-to-year changes, I’d be very grateful, as well as any problem areas I should watch for.



Thanks!

I know when I was shopping the 2018 G80 Standard had a better looking front end (more chrome), a larger LCD info screen next to the speedometer, and different wheels.

Wrong. There is no difference in the front end, the LCD info screen is the same and the wheels didn't change either.

I knew there was something else. I believe you are correct. I really liked the front end redesign. Was kind of plain earlier. Although I liked the 2017 wheels better.

I believe the "Shift by Wire" was a 2018 change.

Were LED headlights and wireless charging new for 2018, or could you get those things in a 2017?

I know the shift-by-wire was new for 2018, but I'd be happy with a 2017 (and maybe save some $$) if that and new 18" wheels were the only change for 2018.

Thanks so much vmi9d3!! Please post back here in this thread with your findings and I will do the same. I don't think the difference between 2017/2018 has been post anywhere on the forums yet.
