Genesis G90 Stardust Edition Takes Elegance To The Next Level

Luxury / Comments

Only 50 examples are planned.

It was last November when the heavily updated Genesis G90 luxury sedan debuted at the 2019 LA Auto Show and now the South Korean brand has just revealed a new special edition version and some equipment upgrades for the 2021 model year. However, it's not coming to the US.

The G90 Stardust Edition is essentially an appearance package that takes inspiration from a star-filled night sky "hanging above a red carpet event where celebrities are showered with flashing camera lights."

The exterior features bespoke two-tone black paintwork with a sparkling pearl effect combined with a Vik black lower. The interior has its own Stardust bespoke styling, specifically two-tone leather and metallic pore Ash wood trim.

"The G90 Stardust represents the ultimate form of elegance," said SangYup Lee, the head of Genesis Global Design. "In that moment when you arrive at a red carpet event, nothing less is expected."

Because of the high-level of customization and craftsmanship required, only 50 examples will be built, all of which are for South Korea only.

For the rest of the world, the 2021 G90 is receiving some convenience upgrades that are standard equipment. Base models now come with Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension and the Intelligent Front-Lighting system, a feature capable of automatically dimming the high-beams when an oncoming vehicle is detected.

All 2021 G90s can also now be equipped with the optional Reverse Parking Collision-Avoidance assist. This system detects objects or people behind the vehicle and automatically applies emergency braking to avoid an impact. Genesis is also offering a set of fancy-looking 19-inch wheels.

For now, Genesis has not revealed pricing for the 2021 G90 for any trim, including the Korea-only Stardust Edition. Chances are US pricing will increase slightly from the current $72,200.

The ultra-limited Stardust Edition, meanwhile, is scheduled to go on sale in South Korea on July 2.
