Genesis Previews All-New Design for its Flagship G90 Sedan

GENESIS UNVEILS G90 EXTERIOR IMAGES
Quote:
Originally Posted by Genesis Newsroom
SEOUL, Korea, November 29, 2021 – Genesis has officially revealed exterior images of G90, the latest version of the brand’s flagship sedan.

G90 follows the brand’s naming scheme, combining the letter ‘G’ for Genesis and the number ‘90’ indicating that it is the brand’s flagship.

G90’s appearance is the most elegant interpretation of the brand’s design philosophy of Athletic Elegance yet, showcasing that it is a flagship capable of providing truly elevated experiences.

The model’s front fascia consists of a new Crest Grille and sleek Two-Line lamps that resembles the brand’s emblem. The Crest Grille takes G90’s look to the next level with its Layered Architecture finish, which is comprised of two G-Matrix patterns layered on top of one another to create a three-dimensional effect.

The headlamps, located on both sides of the grille, feature the thinnest Two-Line design lamps ever created by Genesis. This was achieved by intercrossing the lens of the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) with low beam powered by MLA technology, ensuring the headlamps' thin lines.

G90’s status as a best-in-class sedan is further cemented with its Clamshell Hood, a single panel that combines the hood and fenders in order to eliminate panel gaps and create a sleek impression. This sleekness is also embodied in the Guilloché pattern-applied emblem, which is nearly eighty percent thinner than seen on previous emblems.

Harmony of its Parabolic Line and Daylight Opening (DLO) to the side further evoke the impression of an authentic sedan.

When viewed from the side, the Parabolic Line design starts from the hood and flows along the bottom of the window to the trunk in a seamless line. The vehicle’s refined and voluminous body has been further enhanced with the Athletic Power Lines on the fenders around the wheels, projecting power and dynamism.

The DLOs that surround the first and second-row seat windows are designed in harmony with its thick C-pillars. This offers second-row passengers both an open atmosphere and privacy at the same time, ultimately coming together to complete the model's image as a best-in-class sedan.

The elegant proportions of the wide rear grant the model a strong and well-balanced image. The Two-Line rear combination lamps – key elements of the Genesis design language – are elongated along the trunk, with Genesis’ lettering emblem placed between them.

To draw focus to the iconic Genesis design elements on the upper rear part of the vehicle, functional elements, such as the license plate, various sensors, and the reverse lights, have been placed toward the bottom to ensure that the rear offers a clean look.

Additionally, the Parabolic Line formed by the DLOs that surround the windows and the B-pillar are finished in chrome, allowing the long-wheelbase model’s side profile to make even more of an impression. The model also has exclusive front and rear bumper designs that feature chrome decorations on its rims for enhanced elegance and dynamism.

“G90 will redefine the flagship luxury design experience in a unique way only offered by Genesis.” said Head of Genesis Global Design, SangYup Lee. “G90 is the ultimate expression of Athletic Elegance that carefully balances dynamic driving and an elegant rear seat experience.”

More information on North American market specifications and deliveries will be available at a later date.

I guess it's not really a return since Donckerwolke was with Audi, but still. Biermann, Donckerwolke and plenty of other EU folks have really turned the Korean design and engineering around.

The only thing that I see, in my minds eye, when looking at this car; is a man in his late 60's pulling golf clubs out of the trunk after almost running over pedestrians in the parking lot.

Not my style, but then again I need more info to make an educated decision. I'll need to see the cupholders first.

Am I getting old or is everyone going insane these days? That’s a hideous looking monstrosity. That rear end… I’ve seen a few cars now with that style rear end and I don’t know what people see in it. The lights are cool, but the entire puckered up duck face shape is horrible and why does everyone need a light bar now? Just noticed those wheels… are they for slicing potatoes? Actually referring wheels in blue car pics, wheels in OP pics actually look pretty cool.

I actually like Genesis for the most part and I bet the interior will be super nice, but man that’s one ugly sob!

Genesis Unveils G90 Interior & Specifications

GENESIS UNVEILS NEW G90 FLAGSHIP SEDAN

Quote:
Originally Posted by Genesis Newsroom
SEOUL, Korea, December 13, 2021 – Genesis has fully unveiled its new flagship model, the G90 sedan.

G90 brings its first full model change in three years following an enhanced version in 2018, representing the most elegant interpretation of the brand’s luxury design identity. The model introduces a bold new direction, with advanced assistance features that make driving easier, along with a variety of new technologies that enhace passengers’ journeys.

Genesis’ most elegant exterior yet
G90’s front includes a new Crest Grille and sleek Two-Line headlamps, which are designed to resemble the brand’s emblem. The Crest Grille at the front takes the model’s upscale image to the next level with its Layered Architecture design, comprised of two G-Matrix patterns layered on top of one another to create a three-dimensional effect.

The Two-Line headlamps, located on both sides of the grille, are the thinnest on a Genesis model yet. The headlamps’ slim design was made possible by intercrossing the lens of the DRLs (Daytime Running Lights) with the turn signal, the high beams and the MLA (Micro Lens Array) technology-powered low beams. The low beams in particular combine roughly 200 micro optic lenses per module with ultraprecise technology. The resulting lenses are smaller than those of legacy projection lamps, but provide the same level of light intensity – further reinforcing the G90’s high-tech image.

G90’s status as a flagship sedan is further strengthened by its Clamshell Hood.[1] The Clamshell Hood design features a single panel that combines the hood and fenders to eliminate panel gaps, lending the G90 its definingly sleek design. In addition, the Guilloché[2] patterned emblem, which is nearly 80 percent thinner than the previous version, adds a finishing touch of class and distinction.

When viewed from the side, the Parabolic Line design starts from the hood and flows seamlessly along the bottom of the window to the trunk. Once more, the vehicle’s refined and voluminous body has been highlighted with Athletic Power Lines on the fenders around the wheels, revealing its power and dynamism.

The DLOs bordering the first and second rows of the vehicle are harmonized by thick C-pillars. This allows second-row passengers to enjoy an open atmosphere and privacy at the same time.

At the vehicle’s rear, as key elements of the Genesis design language, the Two-Line rear combination lamps are elongated with the trunk, giving the model a strong and well-balanced image, with the Genesis lettering emblem concisely positioned between them.

Functional elements like the license plate, various sensors, and the reverse lights have been lowered to complete the clean image of G90’s rear design.

An interior that perfectly harmonizes new technologies with analog sensitivities
The interior of G90 is designed to satisfy both customers who take the wheel themselves and those who are driven by chauffeurs.

The driver’s seat brings to life Genesis’ interior design ethos of the Beauty of White Space, harmoniously combining the feeling of a high-tech device with new technologies together with the luxurious details that come with analog sensitivities.

Drawing attention at the front of the vehicle’s interior are slim air vents that, combined with the wing-like shapes and the brand’s next-generation infotainment system – the connected car Integrated Cockpit (ccIC) – integrate the cluster and navigation into a panoramic display, cementing a high-tech look.

The center console carefully utilizes glass and aluminum materials to express upscale analog sensitivities. In addition, the electronic dial-type Shift-By-Wire (SBW) component and a dial-type Central Control Panel (CCP) are differentiated to enable drivers to intuitively distinguish between them while driving. In particular, the SBW prevents maloperation by vibrating when the driver shifts into reverse.

Furthermore, the two panoramic sunroofs located above the first and second rows can be controlled separately. In addition, ambient lighting installed on the left and right ends of the sunroofs are linked with other ambient lighting navigation in the vehicle.

The rear seats of G90 feature the highest quality materials to ensure that the flagship sedan offers passengers comfort and convenience. The left and right seats in the second row can be reclined separately for passengers’ comfort. G90 also provides a new experience to customers with thoughtfully designed storage spaces such as independent tray for magazines and books in the C-pillar area of the second row.

New garnishes made possible thanks to new processing methods have been applied to G90’s center fascia, to the backs of the front-row seats, and to each seat’s door trimming. Genesis’ philosophy of sustainable luxury is well reflected in the G90’s use of Newspaper Crown Wood and Newspaper Stripe Wood. The material is made utilizing a new method that minimizes its impact on the environment by reprocessing wastepaper from daily life, including newspapers.

Used here for the first time in a Genesis vehicle, the metal inlay garnish is a detail that is rooted in the traditional Korean ‘sanggam[3]’ (or ‘inlay’) crafting technique. The garnish maximizes the vehicle’s sense of stature by inlaying the Two Lines and the G-matrix pattern onto real metal, ash wood, and forged carbon surfaces.

G90 will be available in a choice of 12 color options in the Korean domestic market. Brand new colors such as Hallasan Green, Capri Blue, Bariloche Brown, Valencia Gold, and Maui Black are exclusive to G90. The model will also be available in Makalu Gray, Vik Black, Tasman Blue, Savile Silver, Uyuni White, Makalu Gray Matte, and Verbier White. The Hallasan Green color in particular is named after Hallasan, a shield volcano on Korea’s Jeju Island, a decision that reflects the brand’s pride in its distinctive Korean identity.

The vehicle also offers a selection of interior colorways, with a total of five combination choices for the Korean domestic market: Obsidian Black/Mono-Tone, Bordeaux Brown/Obsidian Black Two-Tone, Glacier White/Urban Brown Two-Tone, Modern Gray/Galaxy Black Two-Tone, and Dune Beige/Velvet Burgundy Two-Tone.

The comfortable and quiet driving performance you expect from a flagship sedan
G90 is equipped with a gasoline 3.5-liter turbocharged engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. More details on engine performance for the North American market will be made available closer to launch.

To support strong engine power and torque while ensuring efficient cooling of the brake discs, the G90 utilizes multiple cooling mechanisms, including undercover guide hole, dust cover hole, and wheel guard cooling vanes.

It also features a new Brake Mode, “Chauffeur,” allowing drivers to control braking force. It’s one of three built-in brake modes that drivers can utilize to suit their preferences and driving conditions.

Genesis has outfitted G90 with new suspension technology that offers a smoother ride and better handling performance. It also includes Preview-Electronic Control Suspension (Preview-ECS) as a basic feature, which optimizes control of the suspension by utilizing a front camera to recognize road conditions and provide a smooth riding experience in any driving environment.

For added driving stability, G90 features Multi Chamber air suspension, which alters air pressure in the air springs. Three settings are available depending on driving conditions. When driving at high speeds, the air suspension system lowers the height of the vehicle to reduce wind resistance, improving fuel efficiency and ultimately providing a more stable driving experience. When driving on rough or uneven surfaces, the feature heightens the car to protect its undercarriage and cut down on vibrations from the road. The vehicle’s height can stay at a certain level regardless of changes in weight from passengers or luggage. This allows for a more comfortable ride while adding stability.

In addition, using sensors, the car can elevate its front wheels when going down a steep slope. This provides stronger suspension to prevent damage from contact between the flat road and the undercarriage after the slope. When driving on rough roads, the feature heightens the car by 25 mm (0.98 in) at both ends, the front and rear wheels, to protect its undercarriage from touching the surface of the road and ensure a stable driving experience.

Rear Wheel Steering (RWS) on G90 steers the rear wheels to a maximum of four degrees in a low-speed counter-phase (moving them in the opposite direction of the front wheels) and to a maximum of two degrees in high-speed in-phase (moving them in the same direction as the front wheels).

This allows for easier maneuvering in tight spaces with fewer corrections, and makes the turning radius of G90 similar to that of a midsize car. It also improves cornering stability and allows the vehicle to make agile movements when changing lanes or avoiding obstacles at medium and high speeds.

G90 boasts Genesis’ quietest ride yet, providing the interior serenity that drivers expect from a luxury sedan. It is outfitted with the brand’s most advanced noise canceling ANC-R (Active Noise Control-Road) system, which detects noise from the surface of the road and then sends opposite phase sounds through the speakers to cancel it out. The result is a quieter ride that elevates G90’s driving experience.

To ensure that same quiet and luxury for every seat in the vehicle, Genesis has measured and analyzed the sound sensitivity of each seat and tailored its sound canceling accordingly. Some parts of the system are reinforced with special materials to strengthen the car’s body, while various sound-absorbing materials were used throughout key sections of the car.

Meanwhile, laminated glass was used throughout the vehicle, including the second-row doors’ quarter glass, enabling G90 to achieve a maximum level of quietness.

New automation experience enabled by the most advanced convenience technologies
Genesis has given G90 a suite of various cutting-edge convenience technologies to provide an all-new automated experience from the moment customers board the vehicle until the moment they exit the car at their destination.

When a driver approaches G90 with their smart key, Auto Flush Door Handles pop up to greet the driver. Once the driver enters the vehicle, the EasyClose system closes the door without passengers needing to reach out and grab it. This feature is activated with a press of a button that is located in a number of easily accessible places, including the first row’s center console, the second row’s armrests, and the door trims in both rows.

Additionally, the first-row driver’s seat doors can be set up to automatically close when the brake pedal is used. When passengers exit the vehicle, they can touch the outside door handle switch or press the lock button on the remote control to close the door.

G90’s Fingerprint Authentication System in the center console enables keyless engine start and driving. Moreover, it automatically loads a driver’s personal settings and can be used as an identity verification method for Valet Mode.

G90 is equipped with Digital Key 2, letting customers access and turn on their vehicle by simply touching the door handle when their smartphone is nearby. It also features a hands-free smart trunk system, which automatically opens the trunk when a driver or passenger stands near the sensor located on the rear part of the trunk for three seconds. (A list of smartphone models with this feature can be found on the Genesis homepage and on smartphone manufacturers’ websites). Updates to Genesis Digital Key 2 will be available wirelessly.

Over the Air (OTA) software updates are also available for major electronic systems inside G90, such as the navigation system, digital cluster, Head-Up display (HUD), brakes, steering wheel, suspension, airbags, and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). This allows drivers to update their vehicle’s software without visiting a service center, so their vehicle will always remain up to date with the latest features.

Customers can experience the advanced technology and convenience of G90 even when driving and parking. G90 is the first Genesis model to feature Hands On Detection (HOD), allowing the vehicle to accurately detect when the driver is holding the steering wheel. When driver assistance systems such as Highway Driving Assist are activated, HOD precisely determines whether or not the driver is holding the steering wheel, issuing warnings when necessary.

Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist (PCA) analyzes the vehicle’s surroundings, including the rear, front and the sides, warning the driver when there’s a risk of collision with a pedestrian or object while parking, and activating the brakes if necessary.

The wide-angle camera-based Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA) supports perpendicular parking, parallel parking, and diagonal parking by recognizing parking lines.

An emotionally satisfying personal space that goes beyond transportation
G90 offers various features that highlight the vehicle’s sensitivity, upgrading it from a mere means of transportation to a customizable personal space. With G90, Genesis is offering a glimpse at its vision for the future of mobility.

Genesis has equipped the vehicle with a host of intuitive features, including Virtual Venue, Mood Curator, and an Armrest Touch System. ‘Virtual Venue’ is a virtual, 3D-surround sound function. It recreates the sound characteristics of various spaces that are optimized for certain types of music using settings such as ‘Boston Symphony Hall’ or ‘Bang & Olufsen Home’, and delivers on that sound with an impressive Bang & Olufsen 23-speaker system. Virtual Venue monitors the interior through an in-car microphone and simultaneously creates signals that reproduce the sound field characteristics of the selected space. Then, the system minimizes and stabilizes in-car noise according to the speed of the vehicle while delivering audio through its 23 speakers.

G90 is also equipped with Acoustic Lens Technology (ALT), which optimizes sound quality through electric pop-up tweeters located on the left and right sides of the crash pad and headlining speakers placed in the middle of the ceiling between the first and second row, creating a 3D sound experience.

Mood Curator enables integrated control of features like ambient lighting, the sound system, the fragrance system (olfactory), massage seats, and electric curtains, lifting passengers’ moods. The car offers four different mood modes, each of which can be customized for a high level of personalization.

G90 is also the first model Genesis has equipped with a fragrance system, which disperses pleasing scents throughout the car’s interior. It offers three different aromas: The Driver’s Awakening, The Great Outdoors, and My Favorite Place, which are all provided in replaceable cartridges. A maximum of two cartridges can be mounted to the upper part of the glove box. The type and intensity of the fragrance can be controlled through the infotainment system, rear seat touch control, and ventilation panel. Scents are automatically preselected for different Mood Curator modes, but can also be adjusted manually.

To enhance driver and passenger comfort, Genesis has equipped G90 with ‘ergo-relaxing’ seats. Each seat features 10 air cells on the seatback and two air cells on the cushion, supporting four modes of body massage, including full body, waist, pelvis, and upper body, with three options for massage duration and strength.

Furthermore, for smooth transitions when passengers are boarding and exiting the vehicle, G90 removes air from the side bolsters (waist supporters), and returns to its original position after boarding. When the drive mode is set to Sport Mode or when driving at high speed (130 km/h), the side bolsters are automatically inflated to increase lateral support.

For passengers in the second-row seats, G90 offers a variety of special features to ensure a comfortable journey. A speaker is installed in the driver's seat headrest to send out guide/warning sounds that only the driver can hear, shielding the passengers in the rear seats from hearing unnecessary noise. The VIP seat, located on the right side of the second row, features newly added leg supports and footrests that support heating/ventilation (air intake system) functions, allowing customers to rest in a more comfortable posture.

An 8-inch Armrest Touch Screen (ATS) located in the center armrest in the second row offers touch-type integrated operation. Passengers can set climate control modes, seat position, massage settings, curtain position, and adjust the lighting. The touch-screen display provides clear guidance and explanations with graphics and animations that are suitable for each function related to the buttons.

More information on North American market specifications and deliveries will be available at a later date. Customer deliveries are expected to begin in 2022.

Jeez, love the interior as well. Also it can be spec'ed with multi-chamber air suspension and rear wheel steering. And unlike Japanese Hyundai does very well in EV market, well done Hyundai.

Great Design!

I saw new G80 and it has strong presence in person so this will look even better.

Not my style, but then again I need more info to make an educated decision. I'll need to see the cupholders first.
I resemble that remark!

Can’t argue that Genesis is putting out some striking designs of recent - especially with their interiors. But why do they have to futz with their vehicles every 3 years or so? That (constantly changing design) can’t be good for resale value - something they already suffer greatly from.
