Genesis released official photos and confirmed the specifications of its new luxury flagship G90 sedan. In order to compete with the Mercedes S-Class sedan (although it will not be available in the UK or Europe), the G90 is available in both normal and long wheelbase versions.

The G90 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine mounted on an eight-speed automatic transmission, which can produce 375bhp and 390lb ft of torque, but no further performance statistics have been released.

Not really, it's not. This is a car designed for the owner to sit in the back and their driver to sit in the front. Genesis focuses on the luxury, comfort and ease of use of the G90, thanks to the multi-chamber air suspension, rear-wheel steering and driver assistance technology from automatic door closing to automatic parking.

Technical features also include Virtual Venue, where the 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system can be adjusted to replicate the acoustics of certain real-world venues, such as the Boston Symphony Hall. Headphone-style active noise reduction technology is used to detect the roar of the road and play the opposite sound waves to create artificial quietness in the cabin.

There is also Mood Curator, which uses the G90's ambient lighting, stereo sound, fragrance system, massage seats and electric curtains to enhance the mood of the occupants, while the speakers in the driver's headrest ensure that only they hear navigation commands and alarms so as not to be disturbed Their passengers.

Strangely, yes. The right-hand chair in the second row (in the left-hand driving market) is designated as a "VIP seat" because its leg supports and footrests are both heated and ventilated. Rear passengers can be entertained by a pair of 10.2-inch touch screen monitors, which can automatically adjust the angle according to the seat position.

The infotainment system is controlled by an 8-inch touch screen located in the rear center armrest, allowing passengers to use climate, seat, massage, curtain and lighting controls.

Buyers who want a more luxurious ride can choose the G90 long wheelbase, which retains the same overall length of 5,275 mm as the standard car, but the wheelbase has been increased from 3,180 mm to 3,370 mm.

From the appearance, Genesis showed new design details in the form of "Crest grille" and two slender rows of headlights, which combined resembled the brand logo. Genesis describes how to create slim headlights by intersecting the lens of the DRL (daytime running light) with the indicator light, high beam and micro lens array (MLA) low beam.

Yes, it does. Genesis provides the second-generation digital key technology for the G90. The driver's smartphone can unlock the car when it is close to the car and display the electric door handle. When the driver is seated, the door will automatically close and the car will be activated via the fingerprint reader on the center console-this is also used to load the driver's personal preferences.

The "driver" braking mode allows the driver to choose from three braking modes to help provide a comfortable driving mode for anyone sitting behind. The multi-chamber air suspension automatically adjusts its height and damping based on the navigation system and front camera's view of the road ahead.

Genesis has not said yet, nor has it stated exactly where or when the G90 will be listed. Currently, the latest information we get from Genesis is based on the G90 in the Korean market, and the company said it will not enter Europe.
