Genesis took off the covers to the latest-generation G90 in December last year and a Korean YouTuber recently had the opportunity to check it out in long-wheelbase guise.
The Genesis G90 is already quite a large sedan but compared to the standard model, this long-wheelbase variant is 190 mm (7.5-inches) longer and that results in dramatically more legroom in the back seat. For Genesis owners who plan on spending a lot of time getting chauffeured around, the long-wheelbase version is absolutely the one to go for.
All in all, the interior of the new G90 is dramatically more modern and luxurious than its predecessor. For example, it sports a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch infotainment display, and an overhauled two-spoke steering wheel. It also features an additional screen with capacitive buttons to control the climate settings. A gear selector similar to the ‘Crystal Sphere’ of the electric GV60 also catches the eye.
Occupants sitting in the rear also have access to loads of luxuries which are especially beneficial in the long-wheelbase version. For example, the passenger-side rear seat can completely recline and has a pop-up footrest. There are also displays mounted to the rear of both the front seats as well as an 8-inch touch screen in the rear center armrest that allows things like the seats, climate control, curtain position, and lighting to be adjusted.
From a performance standpoint, Genesis has equipped the new G90 with a 3.5-liter V6 coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine is good for 375 hp and 391 lb-ft (530 Nm) of torque in Korean specification and should offer similar outputs when the car arrives in the U.S.
