Renewed limousine Genesis G90 L: with a VIP-chair and one and a half times cheaper than MaybachFebruary 19, 2019
The premium subbrand of Hyundai presented an elongated version of its flagship sedan. Like the regular model, the G90 limousine is currently available only in one country.
The standard four-door restyled Genesis debuted in Korea last November. The model received a grille in the style of the GV80 and Essentia concepts, other bumpers, new matrix headlights and unusual taillights. Together with the design, the name was changed: if earlier the sedan was sold on the home market under the EQ900 index, now it is called the G90 in the brand’s home country, as in the States and Russia. At the premiere of the “ordinary” car, the manufacturer kept silent about the fate of the stretched version wearing the letter L (that is, the Limousine), but now it turned out that this version remained in service – the long-base sedan was also updated.
Like the modernized “short” G90, the dimensions of the limousine did not change after restyling: the length is 5495 mm, the wheelbase is 3450 mm (the standard sedan has 5205 and 3160 mm, respectively). For comparison, the length of the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, which is considered one of the main competitors of the stretched Korean car, is 5462 mm, the distance between the axles is 3365 mm.
In addition to the blind inserts in the area of the pillar of the body, from the Genesis G90, the elongated version looks different by the presence of a wide chrome plate above the grille. The interior of the G90 L is almost the same as that of the most expensive modification of the short-saloon sedan: there are also two separate rear seats with individual settings, a massive central tunnel, four-zone climate control, and tablets are attached to the backs of the front seats. Differences from the standard model only in the fact that the right rear passenger seat has a retractable footrest, and in the casing of the central pillars there are “pockets” for magazines.
As before, the limousine is offered only with the “aspirated” V8 5.0 GDi (425 hp) and all-wheel drive HTRAC (with multi-plate clutch in the front wheel drive). Also in the arsenal of the top sedan appear suspension with adaptive electronically controlled shock absorbers and 19-inch wheels.
The V8 5.0 engine is set to the “short” Genesis G90, and also with all-wheel drive. Plus for the standard sedan, the petrol biturbo V6 3.3 T-GDi (370 hp) and the aspirated engine V6 3.8 GDi (315 hp) are provided. With these engines, the usual sedan is available with both full and rear wheel drive. All G90 engines are combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
In Korea, limousine sales have already started, the price is from 155,110,000 won. Sedan Mercedes-Maybach S 560 4Matic will cost one and a half times more expensive, the price of Mercedes-Benz – from 241.1 million won. “Short” Genesis G90 costs from 77,060,000 won, Mercedes S-Class – from 132,400,000 won.
At the moment, the updated G90 is presented only on the Korean market, in other countries, the model should appear later this year.
