Not a huge change to the greenhouse/rear window panel, but can tell it's a little more upright than the current G80 (which is a good thing, as allows for more rear headroom).

Can also tell the next gen G80 pretty much retains its size (larger than most of the mid-sizers; again a good thing).

Can also see the dual-strip headlight and taillight shape a la the Essentia concept.

Hard to tell from the 1st photo, but maybe they're trying to do a better job of masking the radar sensor on the grille.

Thanks, and welcome!

Can't wait to see it unveiled. I was wondering when the next gen will be coming out. I tend to change cars every 5 years and my next car will likely be another Genesis G80. I hope the 5.0L will still be available and Android Auto will be available on the top model. I know the current Ultimate models have it but I'm not going to buy the same car again just for that. I'm 2.5 years into my Genesis 5.0, another 2.5 years to go.

The 2018 Ultimate has Android Auto and Car Play. By next generation it will most likely be wireless.

Certainly an interesting shape. Don't see any seams for hood or doors so hard to even call it a concept car.

Based on the 1st photo, looks like nothing more than a refresh of the current G80.

The 3rd shot is where you start seeing a difference.

The roofline doesn't slope as much in the passenger window section as much as on the current model and the rear window panel is more upright as well.

Kinda difficult to tell w/ it not being a straight-on side/profile view as angles can distort things, but from what I can tell, looks different enough.

Was kinda hoping for more differentiation when it came to the greenhouse shape/design (if this, indeed, is the next gen model), but then run the risk of doing something like that weird kink that Infiniti had been doing.

Genesis wanted to accelerate development of the next gen G80, but supposedly, the development of the new platform was taking longer than expected.

Thought the new G80 would launch around the same time as the GV80 CUV - maybe late 2019 for the Korean market or early 2020.

But this looks like a late stage prototype.

The current G80 went into production in late 2013, so 2019 would be its 7th year of production, 1 more than the 1st gen model.

So should be near perfect timing for you (w/ 2.5 yrs to go, likely can avoid the 1st MY).

Was hoping Genesis would revise the grille-within-a-grille design that we saw on the GV80 concept, but seems like it lives on in the new G80 (a pentagon-shaped grille w/ a lower grille element).



But seems like that mesh-like grille treatment continues even further, down to the lower side air dams/inlets.

Someone needs to tell Genesis that there's something called too much of a good thing/less is more.

^ One thing to add about the upcoming powertrains.

As been mentioned several times, the new 2.5T engine will be the base power-plant and had surmised that likely will see a power boost for the turbo V6.

According to a source, TKCB is reporting that the 3.3T will be replaced by a 3.5T.

W/ this move, seems likely that the Tau V8 will be dropped (probably will still see it available for the G90) w/ all powertrains getting updated to the 10 spd AT.
