Genesis G90 (1)

As we told you yesterday, Hyundai just announced yesterday the launching of its separated luxury brand, Genesis, and we also published the first details about the model who will have the honor to inaugurate the new brand, the G90.

The one we expected as the new generation Equus, will arrive turned into Genesis G90 model and will debut at the New York Motor Show in April 2016 after a local reveal in December 2015, where will be called EQ900.

So during the “Genesis Brand” launch event held in Seoul, the new luxurious brand showcased the Vision G concept, a car that according to Peter Schreyer at the moment of the launch at Pebble Beach said, “represents an inspiration for our future family of vehicles,” . Besides this, Genesis (I need to get used that Genesis is now a brand) also showcased the EQ900 (in other words, the Genesis G90) hidden under a piece of cloth.

While yesterday we supossed the new Genesis G90 will be an inspitation after seen our latest spy shots of the new Equus we uploaded compared to the Vision G, there are many similar elements, like the headlights, now we can confirm that, because you only need to take a look into the pictures even under light cloth cover to see that G90 turned in a 4-door saloon production version of the Vision G.

The new subbrand will be made up of just two models initially: the current Genesis sedan and the G90. The current Genesis model will be renamed the G80 for the 2017 model year.

A third sedan called the G70 follows a year later, and by 2021 Genesis will have a total of six dedicated, rear-wheel-drive models including a midsize crossover and an SUV.

    Looks good from the front and 3/4 view, but I think that the dash-to-axle ratio would ideally be longer. The 3.3t V6 and 5L Tau V8 are great engines, but I hope that Hyundai…ahem…Genesis fit both a hybrid and turbo/supercharged V8, or maybe…a…V10/V12?…as flagship powertrains. I also hope that they fit the 10-speed automatic, but the interior will make or break this car.
