Updated flagship sedan looks to gain sharper design up front

The updated Genesis G90 has been teased ahead of its unveiling on November 27, Korean time.

This first official image was posted overnight on the company's Korean website, and shows off the car's larger, and seemingly squarer, headlight units. Featuring an all-LED design, the revised G90 has a more modern lighting signature.

The upstart luxury marque says the G90's tail-lights will gain similar "G-Matrix" graphics "inspired by the beautiful diffuse reflection of diamonds in light".

Thanks to a bit of basic Photoshop work, we can also see the facelifted G90 will feature a five-point grille modelled on the one first seen on the 2018 Essentia concept coupe.

The flagship sedan will also feature active noise cancellation, an active suspension system, a variety of two-tone paint jobs, and standard 18-inch alloy wheels with optional 19-inch rims.

Inside the cabin the G90 update will have a new 12.3-inch central display, and an updated infotainment system with cloud-based voice recognition, a Shazam-style music recognition service, remote smartphone access and control, and over-the-air mapping and software updates.

In South Korea the G90 will be available with a 3.8-litre V6, and a 5.0-litre V8. As part of the update, the car will be renamed to G90 in its home land. It is already sold under the G90 moniker in other regions, such as the USA.

Australia

Hyundai Australia has previously ruled out the G90 for the local market, as it is currently only available in left-hand drive.
