2019 Genesis G90 Spotted With Minimal Disguise, Superman-Like Grille

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.

Kia has a distinct identity but Hyundai does not and have to find one.

 

You can clearly see the family resemblance.

My understanding was that when Peter Schreyer took over at Kia as chief of design, there was a division of the target audience between Kia and Hyundai. Kia was to be more sporty and target a younger audience, while Hyundai was to be grown up & executive targeting the executives... Kia & Hyundai seem to have found a consistent design identity while Genesis is still groping for one... I guess it will take a while... cos it took Hyundai/Kia more than 2 decades to find it...

 

I think you're referring to Genesis, not Hyundai per se.

Genesis is doing very badly in usa. Basically it only sells in Korea (I'm not even sure how much they sell there)

It's so far down the sales chart that it's just a foot note.
I think their sales are very weak despite being praised by car reviewers.
Even if u compare to infiniti, acura, lexus (not even mentioning the Germans)... Its far behind the pack in sales and brand recognition .

Probably they need an SUV model in their line up.

Sedans are not selling quite well in the USA in the recent years.

This may be the answer to the dropping sales in US... dealership network misplanning.

Genesis is a nice name but the car just lack of character. Big mouth grille started off from Audi and that DNA should stuck with Audi and not bringing it to Hyundai and revolutionise it, which fails badly. The ex Audi designer needs to be creative here, like what he did for Kia. He made Hyundais and Genesis look boring, with no design breakthrough at all.

Looks German but the front grille doesn't work for me.

 

Redesigned Genesis G90 debuts with a completely new look

https://www.autoblog...s-g90-redesign/

 

genesis-g90-1.jpg

Genesis, eschewing the L.A. Auto Show, debuted its redesigned G90 in Seoul, South Korea, today. If you were hoping for a totally new look, you're in luck, because Genesis has done just that. The grille is gigantic, and it dominates most of the front of the large sedan now. Flanking the grille are new headlights with an interesting character line extending outside the housing itself. Then we get to those wheels. We imagine people are either going to love them or hate them, but Genesis definitely didn't play it safe with those million-spoke rollers.

Moving around to the back, Genesis switched up the taillight design big-time. It used to be subtle and simple, but now we have full-width LEDs and an even stranger stacked arrangement. Those stacks reach around the side of the car and almost become one line where they end. None of it looks like a direct copycat of other luxury car flagships, but the Koreans are definitely following the industry trend of giant rear taillight strips. 

The interior remains vastly the same, save for a few technology upgrades. A redesigned UI for the infotainment system is now able to receive over-the-air updates for both maps and software. Active noise cancellation is said to make the interior quieter than before, and new colors are available both inside and outside. Driver assistance systems are slightly more capable now — the new G90 has lane-centering, can detect bicycles in its forward collision-avoidance system, and has the safe exit assist feature showing up in Hyundais too.

You may be wondering about powertrain updates, but Genesis has nothing new to report there. We imagine both the 3.3-liter boosted V6 and 5.0-liter V8 will continue to be available stateside, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. 

Genesis also keeps telling us it'll have three SUVs by 2021, which should probably be the priority to keep the brand afloat in the market we have now. We'll see if a more aggressively-styled flagship sedan allows Genesis to encroach any further onto the German's territory once this car gets to market.

Speaking of which, we'll expect this Genesis to be touching down in the U.S. mid-2019. Pricing for the Korean-spec G90 translates to about $71,000 as a base price for the 3.3-liter V6 model, but we imagine it could be different here when it eventually launches.

The previous version is more tasteful.

 

This design looks like something Trump will like, bold, brash and loud.

Apparently ex-bentley designer took over Genesis design. Some hint of Bentley and Audi DNA are there. I agree the pre facelift G90 looks more tasteful despite that unoriginal mouthful grille. This facelift makes it looks hideous.
