A new safety video was uploaded to Hyundai's YouTube channel, which seems to feature their GV concept. Its not all that interesting as it just demonstrates vehicle safety systems but there have been some changes from the original concept that we saw back in 2017. Sculpting on the side profile has changed and the roof no longer slopes in the rear. The side mirrors are also significantly different, looking much more realistic for a production model.

Looks like there might have been something to that video as its now been taken down. Guess Genesis didn't realize that it was showcasing some changes to the original concepts design. Here's some pics since the video probably wont be returning.

It further confirm what we've been seeing in the new G80 and of course in images of the SUV. Not hard to put the puzzle together.
I'm just happy that Genesis is taking a styling direction that's much needed, way to part them from Hyundai...

It probably helps too that many other new vehicles out right now come close to the 2020 G80. By those standards, outgoing Genesis products will look very old and fast.
Actually right now i'm realizing how bad they've done to retain timeless design.

Not that hard when Hyundai has been doing luxury since the 90's, starting with a Lexus LS knock off.

That's definitely fair, but even still they've made huge strides to go from making "knock offs" to making unique luxury sport sedans and SUVs.

Also, the 2020 G80 was spotted testing in Germany, I wonder if there's any design cues from it that we can expect to see on the GV80.
