Genesis has released the first images of the next-generation flagship sedan, the G90, “classmate” of the BMW 7-Series and Audi A8. The model was transformed following the requirements of the corporate style of the Korean brand, a characteristic feature of which is the optics, located in two tiers, and turn signal repeaters on the front fenders. The G90 will be marketed with standard and long wheelbases, and the V8 engine will be excluded from the engine lineup.
Many designs borrowed from the Genesis Concept X, unveiled in March this year. In the official photos, you can see the radiator grille, which now has a shield-like shape and a three-dimensional pattern, modified headlights (the thinnest among all Genesis models), and the low beam is made using MLA (Micro Lens Array) technology, as well as retractable door handles, like the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
There are no photos of the interior yet, but there are details about the elongated Genesis G90. Its wheelbase and rear doors are stretched by 19 centimeters, and from the outside it can be distinguished from the standard sedan by its chrome decor. Two versions of 20-inch disks were specially developed for the model.
As for the technology, there is no official information yet. It is expected that the range of engines will include exclusively “sixes”, since the flagship V8 engine was dismissed: the atmospheric “eight” Tau will be replaced by a V6 Smartstream biturbo engine.
The premiere of the new generation Genesis G90 will take place in December, when orders for the model will open in South Korea. Later, the novelty will appear in other markets.
