I believe we are going to see this model revealed at the NY Auto Show in April. We should get some teaser images within next month. So all the questions you have will be answered by that time around. I know that there is a new 3.5TT producing 400 HP. Supposedly the V8 will no longer be offered in the range but we will have to wait and see.This is what I LOVE to see. This is my future car right here. I'm buying one.
I agree with what Glaz is saying. The circle is a dial for selecting the infotainment. The toggle for the gear selector is just to the front of the centre console, tho it looks to be in a more comfortable position than what we saw on the GV80. I could be wrong.
So far, I'm liking what I'm seeing. But I'd like to get one with the augmented reality HUD. We still don't know if it's included in the 2020 G80 model. If it's not, I'll probably hold off on the purchase until 2021.
Actually from the looks of it it might just be only the park button that is a puch while everything else is is via rotary dial kind of like the old phones In the day where you have to spin it to get the dial number.Oh god it looks like they are experimenting with the Ford rotary dial gear selector.
That would turn me off from buying another, I can’t stand the gimmicky idiot shifter in my g80 sport now, but at least it is a shifter and not a button or a dial.
Edit. Looks like Glaz is right. The gear selector is push button like the new GM’s. EVEN WORSE imo.
Do it like button or dial gear selectors. Give me a standard slot shifter lever.
I wound recommended https://thekoreancarblog.com/ they are a pretty good source for a lot of things when it comes to Hyundai, Genesis and Kia Spy shots and all.I pray that it's revealed in NY. I search google literally every day looking for info on the 2020 G80. I suck up as much info as I can about it. The spy shots on this site are amazing.
I’ll be honest I’m not a fan it either but a lot of these car companies do this in order to free up space. Also the main transmission selector I believe you are talking about is from the FCA group that the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s has where they would role back. They really didn’t do a good job with that selector and had to complete retune the software for it then replace the whole shifter itself to lever action again.Yes it looks gimmicky and stupid from what I can tell, I wish car manufacturers would stop with this, it was a failure in the 60’s and it is a failure now, a simple slot selector has worked for 60 years why mess with it. Several people have Been hurt or even died from these idiot shifter designs.
I see what you are saying but seems like Genesis wants to do something completely different in the luxury market. Remember from now on the Genesis models will not be using the same parts bin from Hyundai. They will have there own parts.I don’t buy the freeing up space reason, It is very easy to create a lever action switch with no mechanical linkage to the transmission that mimicks a slot selector but works like a push button, Lexus and BMW have been doin it for 5 plus years.
My RCF selector had no mechanical linkage to the transmission it was simply a spring loaded switch and took up no more room than the one in my g80. Same with my wife’s Camry and the 2012 M3 I owned.
Oh I’m sure of it especially parts that we can’t see but material wise that will be Genesis exclusive.To an extent. There will still be a lot of common parts shared across the brands, it’s a cost savings thing. All the upper end brands do it, Lexus, Infinity, Acura, Cadillac, Lincoln.
Free up space for what? More and more manufacturers are annoyingly moving functions to the touch screen. The worst I've experienced was a Tesla Model S where there was barely any buttons and switches. I was driving in Las Vegas traffic and it took me a few mins to figure out where the function was to open the roof. I don't know how many times I took my eyes off the road to stare at the touch screen in those few mins. So many cars now have the climate and seat controls in the infotainment.I’ll be honest I’m not a fan it either but a lot of these car companies do this in order to free up space.

My question is this a refresh of the current chassis
like the 2020 G90 or an all new car? Current G80 dates back 5 years now being introduced in 2014 ?
But I expect less so for Genesis as the others do much of their sharing on their FWD-based platformsTo an extent. There will still be a lot of common parts shared across the brands, it’s a cost savings thing. All the upper end brands do it, Lexus, Infinity, Acura, Cadillac, Lincoln.
