Hyundai has revealed the Genesis G90 luxury sedan, the first model under the Genesis luxury brand. The new model will replace the Hyundai Equus in the international market, and will be followed by other models, which include the Genesis G80, G70, a two door coupe, and a crossover.
On the styling front, the Genesis G90 (called the EQ900 in Korea) is very similar to the Vision G Coupe concept. The luxury sedan features a chrome grille, swept back headlamps, dual exhaust tips, and LED tail lamps. The car also features chrome inserts for the bumpers and on the window line.
Powering the Hyundai Genesis G90 luxury sedan is a choice of three engines:
- 3.8-litre V6 producing 329bhp,
- 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 producing 365bhp,
- 5.0-litre V8 which makes 419bhp
The Genesis G90 will be available with an optional all-wheel drive system and with adaptive control suspension system.
To mention a few creature comforts on the inside of the car, the G90 comes with leather interiors, electrically adjustable seats, 12.3-inch infotainment display fro the front and two 9.2-inch displays for the rear, and a three zone climate control.
The Genesis G90 will go on sale in Korea as the EQ900 during the first half of 2016, and other international markets will soon follow. The Genesis luxury sedan from the South Korean carmaker will rival the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
