2020 Genesis G90: From boring to ugly in 4 years

The 2020 Genesis G90 is a major midlife facelift with the front and rear of the sedan entirely changed to fit the brand’s new design theme.


Like many other vehicles which have had a completely new design language (Athletic Elegance and Horizontal Architecture) grafted onto an old car, it’s overdone and ugly because the unchanged parts (the doors and roof) dictate the redesigned components.

Just two engines and trims will be offered: a 3.3L turbo V6 with 365hp and 376 lb-ft, and a 5L V8 with 420hp and 383 lb-ft. Both have an 8-speed auto and RWD as standard, with AWD optional.

The 12.3″ infotainment screen is now a touchscreen, and lane following assist, rear cross traffic collision avoidance, safe exit assist, highway driving assist, and autonomous braking are new additions and standard across the range.

The new G90 has been on sale in Korea for a year, and will go on sale in the States from late December 2019. Pricing to be announced.
