This is the first full model change following the facelift in 2018. The name ‘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. The G90’s appearance is the most elegant interpretation of the brand’s design philosophy of Athletic Elegance yet, showcasing a flagship vehicle capable of providing truly luxurious experiences. The model’s front design consists of a new Crest Grille and sleek Two Line headlamps that resemble the brand’s emblem.

The Two Line headlamps, located on both sides of the grille, feature the thinnest Two Line design lamps by Genesis. Thin lines from the headlamps are created by intercrossing the lens of the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) with low beams, powered by Micro Lens Array (MLA) technology. The G90’s status as a first class luxury saloon 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 Genesis bonnet logo, which is nearly 80 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 saloon. When viewed from the side the Parabolic Line starts from the hood and flows along the bottom of the window to the trunk and is elegantly unbroken. G90’s refined and voluminous body has been further enhanced with the Athletic Power Lines on the fenders around the wheels, projecting power and dynamism.2 The DLOs that surround the first and second row seat windows are designed to harmonise 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 an impressive luxury saloon. The Genesis G90 long wheelbase model features more space to the second row door and C pillar area thanks to its expanded wheelbase, 190 mm longer than standard.
