2018 Genesis G90 Gains New LED Headlights And A Rear Seat Entertainment System

Hot on the heels of being named the most satisfying vehicle in America, Genesis has unveiled the 2018 G90.

Since the model was introduced a little over a year ago, this year’s changes are relatively minor and include newly standard LED headlights with a dynamic bending light function on the G90 3.3T Premium.

Likewise, the range-topping G90 5.0 Ultimate now comes equipped with a rear seat entertainment system that features two 10.3-inch HD displays. Both models also receive a standard CD/DVD player that is located inside the glove box.

While the changes are minor, the G90 comes nicely equipped with Nappa leather seats, a microfiber suede headliner, and a 17 speaker Lexicon audio system. Drivers will also find wood trim, heated / ventilated front seats, a wireless smartphone charger, and an infotainment system with a 12.3-inch display.

Under the hood, two different engines are available. The turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 develops 365 hp (272 kW) and 376 lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque, while the 5.0-liter V8 produces 420 hp (313 kW) and 383 lb-ft (518 Nm) of torque. Both are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

  • DVD? THE WORLD HAS MOVED ONTO BLU-RAY AND NOW 4K BLU-RAY.

      The DVD is not dead. Far from it. In 2016 alone – the top three selling DVD’s sold almost $100,000,000 worth. And that’s just 3 of them. There are millions of DVD’s still sold every year.

      • ALL PLAYERS AS THEY PROGRESS WILL PLAY PREVIOUS GEN TECH. BLU-RAY PLAYERS WILL PLAY CD’S, DVD’S AND BLU-RAY’S. SAME WITH THE 4K PLAYER’S COMING OUT NOW. NO SENSE IN BUYING A PLAYER THAT CAN’T PLAY THE LATEST TECH.

    And Hyundai’s PR department is working overtime to promote this mediocre car. Seriously guys, new lights, a CD/DVD payer (in 2017) and a lame survey about “the most satisfying car in America” is considered news?

  • BlackPegasus

    Say what you will about this car but Cadillac nor Lincoln offers anything that comes close to the G90 in terms of Flagship presence.

      This one easily outdoes a CT6 and the conti.

  • dumblikeyou2

    Was this design on purpose? It’s the HIGH-UNdai of Hyundai with just enough interior opulence for that creepy Korean executive customer.

  • psiqtas

    This car is designed by no-brainer designer – it recycles design clues from the rest big sedans/limos like Chrysler 300, bimmer 7, Cadillac CT6, MB S-class etc…so what so “moving” in that car’s design?
