Prior to unveiling, design of new-generation Genesis G90 revealed
Hyundai-owned luxury brand Genesis is expected to unveil its new-generation G90 sedan next year. In the latest development, the brand has revealed the design of the upcoming car. The official pictures suggest that it has a clamshell bonnet, designer alloy wheels, and a full-width taillight. Under the hood, it might be fueled by petrol or an electric powertrain. Here are more details.
Why does this story matter?
The long-wheelbase version of the new Genesis G90 might make its way to India in the future. The car will probably arrive here as a completely-built unit (CBU) and will take on rivals such as the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and Audi A8. On its arrival, the competition in the luxury sedan segment will increase to a great extent.
The car has a pentagonal grille and 20-inch wheels
The new Genesis G90 flaunts a sloping roofline, a clamshell hood, a massive pentagonal grille, a wide air dam, and sleek headlamps with the brand's "Two-Line" design. It is flanked by B-pillars, ORVMs, and 20-inch alloy wheels with an abstract look. A shark-fin antenna, a raked windscreen, a full-width taillight, and twin exhaust tips are available on the rear end.
It might be fueled by a 375hp, 3.5-liter engine
The upcoming Genesis G90 may be fueled by a 3.5-liter turbo-petrol engine that makes 375hp of power and 530Nm of peak torque. An electric powertrain with an output of 365hp/700Nm might also be available.
The sedan will get multiple airbags and touchscreen infotainment console
The upcoming Genesis G90 is expected to have a luxurious cabin, featuring key-less entry, auto climate control, parking sensors, rear AC vents, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It will pack a touchscreen infotainment console with support for the latest connectivity facilities. The passengers' safety will be ensured by multiple airbags, ABS, a rear-view camera, crash sensors, and EBD.
