If you didn’t take Genesis’ efforts to be perceived as a full-fledged luxury car brand seriously, the 2020 G90 Limousine might help you reconsider.
While the U.S. market still has to wait a few more months to get the facelifted G90 flagship, Hyundai’s premium brand has just unveiled a stretched version for the Korean market.
Unsurprisingly, the G90 Limousine offers presidential levels of rear legroom thanks to a 290 mm (11.4 in) increase in overall length over the regular G90. All of it benefits the car’s wheelbase, and specifically rear passenger room, as evidenced by the stretch of sheet metal added between the doors as well as the longer rear doors.
Overall, the Genesis G90 Limousine measures an impressive 5,945 mm (216 in), with a generous wheelbase of 3,450 mm (135.8 in). The model is also slightly taller than the regular G90 sedan, measuring 1,505 mm (59.3 in).
The car is obviously made for the wealthy and powerful, of which you can find many in Seoul’s Gangnam district. The lavish rear passenger compartment features two 18-way power adjustable VIP seats upholstered in semi-aniline quilted leather, two TV monitors, Alcantara headliner, and a command center located atop the console separating the seats.
On the outside, the G90 Limousine adopts subtle upgrades compared to the standard-wheelbase model including a chrome garnish at the top of the grille, chrome side mirror supports, and of course the added sheet metal clearly visible on the sides that justifies its limo designation.
Fittingly, there is only one engine option, a 5.0-liter V8 gasoline engine rated at 425 PS (420 hp) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels via the standard AWD system. The luxury sedan also gets an adaptive suspension as standard.
The Genesis G90 Limousine is available with a starting price of 155.1 million won (about $138,100) in Korea. The automaker didn’t say anything about bringing the flagship model to overseas markets.
