I hopped in, I immediately noticed this big screen. It pops up the digital camera
to wherever you're going.
You have the windows open, and you put on the air purification mode,
it closes the window automatically.
Starting from the G70, these two lines, or a DRL we could
see the Genesis has been trying to give it its unique identity over this DRL's.
Since we got the Genesis lineup right here, let me show you the next one.
Unlike the G70, instead of the double character lines, or DRL lines. Instead G90
decided to go with the one horizontal line that runs throughout; however, G90
also integrated the side markers that's not seen in a G70, but rather also
the G90. However, if you look at the rear taillights, they continue on with the two
double stripes on the back. As you have seen, starting from the G70, and
G90 and all the way up to the GV80 that we have over here. From the double line
to a single line and back again to the double lines, as well as the side markers
here, which is connected seemingly all the way to the to the rear.
And obviously, now it's going to be the character line and characteristics of
the Genesis brand to come. We'll see how how the lines and also the design would
change in the GV90 and also GV70 that we'll be seeing, but, however officials
have confirmed. And some of you left questions for me looking for some
answers and I haven't even noticed, but you guys found out that there is
actually a subwoofer right here underneath the driver's seat. And, well
me be pushing it back all the way, it's not going to reveal the whole thing anyway.
But, yeah. Unfortunately, this model is not fully equipped with a Lexicon, but rather
just the standard regular ones. But, those subwoofers come standard. I've checked it
with the Guru over here, that's exactly it.
And answering the question from "clancep", thanks for
your question by the way. And unfortunately, Genesis GV80 does not offer
any massage system on a passenger seat. It just is not available. And as for the
driver's seat, there is a massage function, but it's not the one that we
would expect from that of a Mercedes. So, it's more of an assistance or alert than
like a full massage that we see. And from the actual physical button that they had,
this turned into a touch sensor, so with your key in your pocket,
you could simply touch to lock and unlock.
However, that's missing on the rear side.
I hopped in, I immediately noticed this
big screen. This is a 14.5 inch. Never seen before, this is the largest
screen that we've seen thus far. By the way, those two red lights that you're
seeing are the infrared lights. That enables this GV80 to recognize, if
the driver is sitting in the position. So, it changes and shows you a different
information accordingly. This is the Comfort mode, probably the most typical
gauge cluster that any driver would find. Switching over to Sports.
Tachometer becomes reddish, and I could immediately feel the bolster,
kind of squeezing in. And the last one is Custom. And simply put, you can
customize your settings. So going back to the very top is the Eco, and
that's where you could maximize your fuel efficiency, obviously. I just played
around to see if the maximum speed will change depending on the driver mode, but
no, that's -- hits up to 260. So just following through the latest on trends
within the automotive scene. They put on the reverse mode, so it doesn't go up
that way in like a conventional one, but rather the other way.
That's the gauge cluster, it let me fire it up. First, a break, start button's right
there. That's what the gauge cluster looks like after it fires up.
So, when you turn on the signal, like so, it pops up the digital camera to wherever you're going.
Left and right. So, you could immediately see what's right next to you. I can
barely see the front of the Bimmer, when I do a shoulder check, that's what I
exactly see. I put on a Sports mode, and immediately, um, the bolsters kind of
squeeze me in, kinda saying that "Hey, you're in a sports mode." You can't see from that
angle, but Genesis has implemented the side mirrors on a body, front corner of the
A-pillar is available to be made out of the glass.
So, this take cares of the this blind spot, which is a big controversy and a
big drama for giant SUV's like GV80. It's only tiny. It's about a size of my palm,
but that adds a lot of extra safety, you'll know what I mean, if you've been
driving a big SUV before. And also, or a truck for that matter. I just came across an
Escalade, but I mean of course the size-wise, Escalade it's going to -- I mean,
Escalade is bigger. Escalade is Escalade, but I actually had almost the
same ride height as the driver.
That sums up the test drive, and you guys are wondering what the last two
things are, that I haven't yet disclosed. I was at Hyundai Motor Studio, and there
was a Palisade up for display as well. So, I hopped in to get the immediate feeling
of the differences between the two -- Palisade and the GV80.
So, this is the fifth thing that you didn't know about. Which is that big LED light on the back
of a trunk, which GV80 is missing. Also, another thing that GV80 is missing is
these air conditioning system on the rear seats. Palisade has it, and GV80
doesn't. I don't know why. The very last thing I wanted to point out is -- don't
forget to disable this auto hold, when you are reversing your car while trying
to park. As soon as you take your foot off the brake, it will hold automatically.
So, you don't get that traditional, smooth reversing back of a car. For the record,
the P button that you see next to the drive, the D, is so that the vehicle
doesn't lock in a parking mode when you turn off the engine. That button will
keep your car at a neutral, so that the car can roll with a human force back and
forth. And you guys are probably wondering why that feature is added in there?
Korea being a very compacted country with full of cars in parking lots,
this feature is a must. Because, we
parallel park in front of the cars that's already being parked. And ironically,
for that reason, some people just cannot buy a German car. As soon as you open up
a door or you turn off your engine, it will go into the park, lock your gears
immediately. So, that's maybe what Genesis has seen -- that need of car being able to
move in a neutral. So, that's why they threw in that feature, right there. That, I
can tell you. It might be useful in some European countries? Um, I don't know.
Tell me, if wherever you are, you think you need this feature, aside from Korea.
And on a steering wheel, starting from the top one. This controls
the gauge cluster, like so. And this is the lane keeping. And this
is, um, assistance. This is the button for keeping the automated distance,
with the car in the front. This button right here, will increase or decrease the
speed that you're on when you put on the cruise mode. And this is just simply roll
up and down button. So, for instance, you have the windows open and you put on the
air purification mode, it closes the window automatically.
This you can have it up there -- like -- while you're driving. The best part about this, is that it
provides the blind spot that you just cannot see from -- with your bare eyes.
Because of the car being high and long and big, you can't see you this blind spots.
But, you know, we just saw a pedestrian walk by and I could see the
full resolution of him walking by. Not just talking about what I am seeing
right now in front of me, the G70. So, this is not just the fancy technology
that they threw in, just -- you know -- bragging about what they can do, or what Hyundai can
do about the technology, but this is actually very applicable and useful.
I have a good feeling that this technology alone will save a lot of lives out there.
Because, believe it or not, with a giant SUV's like these, there are a lot of
unforgiving accidents, like unforeseen accident.
