2023 Genesis G90 sedan: A look at its key highlights
Hyundai-owned luxury brand Genesis has revealed its new-generation G90 sedan. It will go on sale in South Korea next year. The premium vehicle flaunts an imposing look and runs on a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine. It also has an opulent cabin loaded to the brim with tech-based features. Let us have a look at some of its highlights.
- After its debut in South Korea, the long-wheelbase version of the new Genesis G90 should eventually make its way to India.
- Once it arrives on our shores, the competition in the luxury sedan segment might be raised.
- The four-wheeler should be introduced here as a completely-built unit (CBU). It will rival the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and Audi A8.
Genesis G90 sports a Crest Grille with two G-Matrix patterns to create a 3D effect, "Athletic Power Lines" on the front wheel fenders, a clamshell bonnet, and thick chromed C-pillars. For lighting, the sedan gets sleek Two-Line headlights with Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology and Two-Line rear combination lamps. It rides on 20-inch wheels with an "elegant yet voluptuous" design shod in Michelin tires.
The new Genesis G90 has a luxurious dual-tone black and brown cabin featuring sleek AC vents shaped like wings and a distinct dial-type central control panel for the driver's convenience. Metallic patterns engraved on the carbon trims evoke a sense of luxury. Meanwhile, the second row has a lounge-like appearance and offers seats with 4-way powered leg support.
In the 2023 Genesis G90, passengers' safety has been enhanced. The vehicle now offers 10 airbags, Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control which slows down upon entering the speed limit, and Hands On Detection function which detects when the driver is holding the steering wheel. Intelligent Front-Lighting System, Remote Smart Parking Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist are also available.
The G90's EasyClose system automatically closes the door without requiring passengers to reach out and grab the handle. It boasts a mood curator that controls in-car features, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, and a fingerprint authentication system. The car also gets a connected car Integrated Cockpit (ccIC) with support for over-the-air software updates and two 10.2-inch adjustable touchscreens in the rear.
Genesis G90 gets Shift-By-Wire, which permits smooth gear transition and four driving modes, namely Comfort, Eco, Sport, and Custom. Active Road Noise Control cancels road noise generated while driving, while the all-wheel-drive system ensures a smooth ride on slippery paths. The sedan also gets highway control which ensures stability on highways and uphill control which prevents damage to the underbody by raising vehicle height.
