Genesis has released the first teaser image of the 2020 G90.
Shown underneath a sheet, the image reveals the updated model will have an all-new front fascia with a revised grille that looks more prominent that its predecessor. We can also see new LED headlights that have a thin accent strip which is similar to the Thor’s Hammer headlights used by Volvo.
Additional styling details are hard to make out, but it appears the flagship sedan has also been equipped with a new front bumper and a revised hood. The styling changes will likely continue out back as there should be a modified rear end with updated taillights.
Genesis didn’t say much about the updated G90, but hinted the car will have “distinctive styling cues and exceptional comfort.” The company also said the luxury sedan will be unveiled soon and this suggests a possible unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Regardless of when and where the G90 is introduced, the model will likely feature an assortment of familiar engines. In the United States, the entry-level option is a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 that produces 365 hp (272 kW / 370 PS) and 376 lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system. Customers also have the option of ordering a 5.0-liter V8 that develops 420 hp (313 kW / 425 PS) and 383 lb-ft (518 Nm) of torque.
Little else is known about the car, but previous reports have suggested the model will be offered with a Level 2 semi-autonomous driving system called Highway Driving Assist. The system effectively combines adaptive cruise control with a lane keeping assist function and it’s availability on the G90 will mark the first time the system is offered in the United States.
The 2019 G90 starts at $68,350 which significantly undercuts its German and Japanese competitors. Despite this, sales have been modest as the company only sold 4,398 units in the United States last year.
