The South Korean carmaker has launched its new and improved flagship sedan in Korea at the end of 2018, and then showed it at the auto show in Montreal in January.
Therefore, we are already well familiar with his design — which leaves no room for taking it over its predecessor.
The dominant feature of the front of the new Genesis G90 is a lattice triangle and a couple of intriguing headlamps with led daytime running lights, passing through their center.
Especially interesting is the modified rear section, where there separate led tail lights and led panel, visually stretching the car’s width, and a chrome exhaust pipe, similar in shape to the front grille. Overall, it looks quite premium.
Since this is a facelift and not an entirely new model, the changes made in the interior, not so radical as those discovered outside. In fact, on first impressions, the interior seems largely unchanged.
Genesis upgraded 12.3-inch display to the touch screen and added support for Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link. In addition, the infotainment system supports wireless updates of maps and software.
On the other hand, Genesis has developed active noise reduction to make the interior more quiet than before. Adaptive control suspension has also been updated to minimize vibration.
Standard G90 2020 includes key security features, including assistant hold the lane assistant, collision avoidance with rear cross-traffic assistant prevent collisions in the forward direction, the assistant safe travel and an assistant driving on highway. The car also has 10 airbags as standard, including airbag knee on the passenger side.
