The new Genesis flagship sedan will debut on November 27.
Genesis is gearing up to unveil the facelifted 2020 G90 in less than a couple of weeks on November 27. The updated luxury sedan was recently shown under a sheet in a shadowy teaser image, but these new design sketches produced by Ubinine give us a better look at the design changes after the car was shown at a private media event in South Korea.
From the drawings, the new crest grille and slender headlights with extended turn signals appear to be inspired by the exuberant Essentia Concept that debuted at the New York Auto Show.
The upgrades continue at the back with taillights featuring two rows of LED strips, with the lower one running across the width of the car. Elsewhere, a daytime running light strip can be found on the front fender. Also expect the 2020 Genesis G80 to come with new bumpers, alloy wheels, and color options. These changes should give the flagship sedan a more distinctive design to help it stand out from the crowd compared to the current model, which looks rather conventional.
The new Genesis flagship sedan should also benefit from the same upgrades as the second-generation Kia K900 received earlier this year, including a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a new 3D instrument cluster. Powertrain options aren’t likely to change, however, so expect the current model’s engine options to carry over. This means the 2020 G90 will likely be offered with a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 delivering 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque and a 5.0-liter V8 that produces 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.
