The Korean Car Blog has posted live photos of the new Genesis G90. The flagship sedan was unveiled on the last day of November, describing its design as “the most elegant interpretation of the Athletic Elegance philosophy.” The model received a Crest Grille grille with a three-dimensional pattern, one-piece lights, but retained the Two-Line headlights – this time the thinnest in the lineup.
The current Genesis G90 is a restyling of the first generation sedan introduced in 2015. The car in the photographs is a full-fledged generation change, although this cannot be said in appearance. The manufacturer stated that the four-door represents “the most elegant interpretation of the Athletic Elegance philosophy,” while retaining all of its key elements.
The Pentagonal Crest Grille and the distinctive Parabolic Line are in place. Inspired by the play of light in a cut diamond, the G-Matrix pattern on the lattice is now double superimposed. The low beam in the Two-Line headlights is made using the technology of an array of microlenses (MLA, Micro Lens Array), so the company managed to reduce the size of the “stripes”, making the optics the thinnest in the range.
Data on the range of engines of the new G90 is not yet available. According to rumors, the sedan will lose the five-liter “eight”, and its base unit will be the V6 3.5 T-GDI (380 forces and 530 Nm), combined with an eight-band automatic and all-wheel drive. This is the same motor used on the G80, GV70 and GV80. An all-electric version with a twin-engine unit from Electrified GV70 with 360 kilowatts (489.5 hp) and 700 Nm of torque is expected.
