Not the clearest pictures but some new photos have surfaced of a test mule in Korea. Most of design cues have carried over right from the original concept, aside from the lighting setup which is a bit larger than before. More conventional rims and side mirrors too.

Those pictures were from the last time it was spied. This time around it actually sheds some of the cladding, take this as an early preview of what'll actually come to production.

Do you think the different wheels in the picture you posted could be a different trim/model than what's below?

I would guess that similar to the tiering on the G80 that we will see at least a base, sport and ultimate trim for the GV80. There is also a chance they haven't finalized the wheel design. 20' standard across the range?

Great to finally get a glimpse of the cabin, even if it is covered in cladding. Do we think the production model will get a rotary dial gear selector like we are seeing on this test mule?

those dials are becoming a normal thing within the industry which started off with BMW and now taken to new heights with Range Rover
IMO, Genesis offering it is one of the best things for us, I just hope this is a sign of other surprises.

Would certainly be a smart design choice to make it more comparable to the features found in other premium models. I know this is still a working prototype but the materials on the steering wheel and armrest don't look very high quality.

even more of a reason for Genesis to have a tuning brand like Alpina that tunes BMW's. done right it could be the next best thing for the industry for affordable luxury

With Hyundai's new performance N sub brand, some of those tunes and performance parts could easily make their way into Genesis models. I know they've said they don't plan on making BMW M fighters, but they may not have a choice with the growing interest in performance based SUV's.

I've actually seen that played out in other brand.
Lexus is one of them but instead of taking from Toyota, they took a high performing V8 from its F-models and packaged it into a grand touring coupe with no performance designation.
