Genesis brought to Los Angeles an updated G90 sedan

Better late than never, Genesis has finally unveiled an updated version of the full-size luxury sedan G90 about a year after the introduction of the flagship in South Korea. The changes are so significant that you may be tempted to believe that this is the next generation model.

The focus is, no doubt, on the new and rather large Crest grille, surrounded by what the luxury division of Hyundai calls quadrangular headlights, as they are separated by daytime running lights.

The rear of the large sedan looks richer, thanks to updated taillights with a wide streak of light passing through the entire trunk lid. The integrated rear spoiler and grille-shaped twin tailpipes are also new, and the 19-inch wheels feature sound absorption technology to reduce tire noise.

Inside, the modifications are less significant. There is a 12.3-inch touch-screen infotainment system with support for wireless updates, as well as integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Active Noise Cancellation technology is available, as well as an adaptive suspension that provides a smooth ride. Many new safety systems are also worth mentioning: lane keeping assistance, collision avoidance assistance, safe exit assistance and highway assistance.

The 2020 Genesis G90 will go on sale in the United States next month in two versions: the 3.3T Premium with a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 and the 5.0 Ultimate with a 5.0-liter V8. The former will have 365 horsepower and 510 Newton meters of torque, while the latter will develop 420 hp. and 519 Nm. Both will have a standard eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, but AWD will be available as an option.
