Unveiled during a local event in Seoul, the executive sedan benefits from an extensive makeover on the outside, which brings a reworked grille, four-point headlights, new hood creases, redesigned taillights and a few other features.
The side turn signals ‘split’ the headlights in two, there are new exhaust tips and optional 19-inch wheels with sound absorption to reduce tire noise. Genesis is offering the 2020 G90 in nine exterior colors, including the new Porto Red and Gold Coast Silver, and new two-tone color and trim combinations, namely Brown and Brown/Blue.
Inside, things have largely been carried over, although the automaker does mention a re-engineered 12.3-inch infotainment display with smartphone integration and Intelligent Car Management Service. The central air vents are now slimmer and customers will have more trim options to choose from.
Some of the technologies present in the 2020 Genesis G90 are Active Noise Cancellation, Adaptive Suspension Control with electronic damping, and automatic external air prevention that automatically adjusts to recirculation mode when the sensors detect a polluted environment or the car enters a tunnel.
Standard safety features include Lane Follow Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Safe Exit Assist.
Browsing on the Korean automaker’s local website reveals a choice of three engines and as many grades for the 2020 Genesis G90. These are the 3.8-liter GDi, 3.3T GDi and 5.0 GDi. The first two are available in Luxury, Premium Luxury and Prestige trim, whereas the 5.0 only with the Prestige.
Genesis says the redesigned G90 will enter additional markets beginning next year, so we should know more about the U.S.-spec in the coming months.
