2022 Genesis G90 revealed: Is the BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS-rivalling flagship sedan coming to Australia?

The striking G90 follows the design direction of other Genesis models

Genesis has lifted the lid on its flagship G90 sedan that will sit above the G80 in its line-up.

The striking new-generation sedan replaces the original that went on sale in South Korea in 2016.

Genesis has so far only released exterior images, which show that the new model has adopted the premium brand’s distinctive ‘Athletic Intelligence’ design language found on its current models.

The large crest grille up front, split “two-line” headlights that line up with the side running lights and tail-lights are Genesis signatures, but taken to a new level with slimline headlights and unique tail-lights.

It also features a long bonnet, sloping boot line, chrome flourishes and model-specific 20-inch alloy wheels.

Genesis will offer the G90 in standard and long-wheelbase guise – the latter adding 190mm to provide more rear-seat space.

Hyundai’s luxury arm says it plans to expand the markets it sells the G90 for its second generation, beyond just offering it in South Korea.

As far as Australia is concerned, don’t expect to see the G90 at a Genesis store anytime soon.

“We have no current plans to bring the new G90 sedan to Australia, our focus will remain on our current model range which consists of two sedans (G70 & G80) and two SUVs (GV70 & GV80),” the spokesperson said.

“However next year this focus will shift to our new portfolio of EVs, we plan to launch three all-electric cars locally in 2022 (GV60, Electrified GV70 and Electrified G80), with more to come.”
