After the all the G70 being named North American Car of the Year hype in Detroit this week, Genesis had something a little more posh for the Montreal public.
Indeed, it’s at the Montreal Auto Show that the luxury automaker decided to lift the veil on the 2020 Genesis G90, its most luxurious sedan.
This Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and Lexus LS (to name a few) rival receives a fairly significant exterior overhaul. First of all, the front is given a different grill and LED headlights, while the rear gets a more distinctive look thanks to a new horizontal LED strip that will make the Korean limousine immediately noticeable on the road.
It also gets oversized rims that don’t look like anything else currently in the industry. Even if the G90 does not have the prestige of some of its German rivals, there’s something to its ultra luxurious design. It’s not lacking personality or charm.
Under the hood of the G90, there are two engines, the first being a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 with 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. The V6, however, is available on special order unlike the other mill, a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 delivering 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.
The only available gearbox is an eight-speed automatic, which is teamed with the brand’s all-wheel drive.
The 2020 Genesis G90’s interior is a stunning place to spend some time, no doubt about that. For example, the 12.3-inch wide center screen has been redesigned to not only integrate the brand’s black and copper colors, but also to accommodate multiple functions simultaneously. In addition, the G90 gets an advanced noise cancelling feature that will make the cabin extra quiet.
Genesis did not release any pricing info, but that will come as we get closer to the 2020 G90’s planned release this summer.
