Genesis Details 2020 G90 Ahead Of November 27th Unveiling

Genesis teased the facelifted G90 last week and now the company has revealed an assortment of details about the upcoming model.

Set to be unveiled on November 27th, the updated sedan will have an all-new front fascia with a crest grille that is similar to the one used on the Essentia and GV80 concepts. The car will also come equipped with new G-Matrix lighting units which are “inspired by the beautiful diffuse reflection of diamonds in the light.”

Out back, there will be new taillights with graphics similar to the ones used on the headlights. Genesis lettering will also replace the traditional wing emblem used on the current model.

2018 Genesis G90 interior

While most facelifts largely focus on exterior updates, Genesis says the cabin will have new air vents and revised switchgear. The company also suggested there will ergonomic changes and less buttons than before.

Drivers can also expect to find open-pore matte wood trim and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with a new interface as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Speaking of the infotainment system, it will feature a Sound Hound function which can provide information about the current song being playing. The system will also have a “Mobile SMS interworking” function which can display text messages, read them aloud and then send “basic text replies.”

Technologies that will make your life easier

Sticking with the technology theme, the G90 will now have over-the-air updates which will allow the navigation system to automatically download the latest maps. The model will also have an “Intelligent Vehicle Management Service” which monitors driving habits and will provide owner specific suggestions such as when to change the brake pads.

Another unique feature is the “external air inflow prevention control” system. It will apparently automatically close the windows when traveling through areas with polluted air.

In terms of comfort, the G90 has material and structural changes which promise to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. The car will also have an Adaptive Control Suspension and an Active Noise Control system. The latter cancels out offending noises by generating a counter sound.

As with most modern cars, the flagship sedan will come with a host of driver assistance technologies. These will include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist and Safe Exit Assist.

In South Korea, the G90 will be offered with three different engines including a 3.8-liter V6, a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 and a 5.0-liter V8. Hyundai didn’t mention performance specifications, but confirmed pricing will start at 70.60 million yuan ($61,948).

    This is cool and I’m excited for it but Genesis really needs to hurry and make an SUV. Not because I want one but because I want them to have the money to make sports cars

  • BlackPegasus

    I thought the G-matrix lighting was illegal in the US. Can anyone confirm this?

  • john1168

    I have a bad feeling I’m not gonna like the front of this car. The G90 is usually a nice riding car though with a lot of nice features. I’m curious about these headlights. I’m not crazy about the shape of them but they seem pretty cool.

    • paulgdeaton

      The headlights do look cool; the grill looks like it is starting to fall into the “can-I-be-as-ugly-as-a-Lexus” category…
