New Genesis G90 facelift teased before Nov 27 debut

Genesis Motors, the luxury vehicle division of the Hyundai Motor Group, has released a teaser of the facelifted Genesis G90 ahead of an official debut on November 27. The flagship model was first introduced in 2015, and is also known as the EQ900 in its native Korea.

Underneath the giant cover is the car in question, although you won’t be able to see much of the new car’s styling for obvious reasons. However, the bright LED headlamps indicate a more squarish design compared to the outgoing model, with long, illuminated strips running through the middle acting as the daytime running lights.

We can also roughly make out the brand’s trademark hexagonal-shaped grille, which now tapers down more severely towards the bottom, and there is a honeycomb pattern for the mesh instead of horizontal slats in the same breath as the G70 and G80 Sport. A new front bumper is a definite here, which should feature a larger lower intake than before as well.

According to an official release, the new G90 will also come with a revised rear, 18-inch wheels (19-inch optional), three new colour combinations, over-the-air update function for the infotainment system, a 12.3-inch touchscreen (also found in the Kia K900), a host of safety and driver assistance systems, and premium interior materials.

Engine options include a 3.3 litre T-GDI V6, 3.8 litre GDi and 5.0 litre Tau GDi V8. An eight-speed automatic transmission will likely be the sole pairing partner for the engines, with all-wheel drive available as an option in place of the standard rear-wheel drive.
