The 2019 Genesis G90 will be unveiled shortly, but several lightly camouflaged prototypes have surfaced online.
While it’s hard to pin down their origin, the images reveal the redesigned flagship will adopt a more distinctive front end which features a prominent crest grille that is similar to the one used on the Essentia and GV80 concepts. The grille is flanked by new G-Matrix headlights which have slim LED daytime running lights in the middle of them. Further below, we can see a modified front bumper which features restyled air intakes.
Moving further back, the car appears to adopt a new front fender vents with feature integrated turn signals. Details are hard to make out, but they appear similar those seen in sketches which surfaced last week.
Further changes can be seen at the rear as the license plate area has been moved from the trunk to the bumper. This freed up designers to install new taillights which are connected by a slender light strip. Other notable changes include a new rear spoiler and restyled exhaust tips which mimic the design of the crest grille.
The single interior image doesn’t reveal any drastic changes, but Genesis has already confirmed the model will have an updated 12.3-inch infotainment system which has an improved interface, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility as well as the ability to receive over-the-air updates. The infotainment system will also have a mobile SMS function which can display text messages, read them aloud and then send basic replies.
Speaking of technology, the 2019 G90 will have an adaptive suspension and an active noise control system which cancels out unpleasant sounds. The car will also have an assortment of driver assistance systems including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist and Safe Exit Assist.
The facelifted G90 will be unveiled on November 27th and South Korean customers will have a choice of three different engines including a 3.8-liter V6, a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 and a 5.0-liter V8.
