Rebranding is a pretty bold move, especially considering the fact that the previous generation Genesis is still sold under the brand Hyundai. But despite this, the Koreans have great expectations from the new sedan business-class because of its design development was invited Luke Donckerwolke the former design Director for brands such as Bentley, Lamborghini and Audi. Moreover, G90 2017 is not a pure development Donckerwolke, the basic style was laid out by Peter Schreyer, the chief designer of Hyundai and Kia.
Maintaining corporate identity is always a difficult task. As for the new-generation Genesis, the designers have succeeded in full measure. So, the main features directly intersect with the stylistic features of the Hyundai Genesis and Equus. The front bumper and is made almost identical, with the same false radiator grille and winged logo. In fact, the new sedan is perceived as the top model of Hyundai, and not as an independent brand. This is quite a controversial decision, because if you try to create a new automotive brand manufacturers, as a rule, the maximum differencebut its lineup from other units. That is especially important in the case when talking about luxury brand, separate from traditionally which produces budget models of the concern.
G90 2017 received bi-xenon headlights with adaptive system, and led daytime running lights. And in the rear view mirror mounted lamps, projecting on the pavement, the Genesis logo.
Designers efficiently came to the layout of the exterior and interior, which allowed to significantly increase the base of the car and reduced front and rear overhangs. In fact, the length of the base is 204,9 inches, which is only 1.6 inches shorter than the long-wheelbase version of the Mercedes-Benz S-class. After this target, 19-inch alloy wheels in the basic equipment already look for granted.
Feed car memorized large led lights and dual exhaust system. Several disconcertingly looks like a set of all five colors offered, despite the fact that competitor models like the BMW 7-series, the range includes 13 colors, not counting the exclusive colors.
The length of the car is 5205 mm with a wheelbase of 3160 mm, height – 1495 mm and overall width is 1915 mm. Luggage compartment for cars of this level is an indirect characteristic, and in this case it is equal to 484 L. Basic dimensions of the model as close to BMW 7seryy and even surpass them.
The Interior Of The Genesis G90
The interior of the G90, as it should be done properly, using high quality leather and wooden trim elements, such as strokes, analog clock on Central console, just add personality. The steering wheel is already in the database has a heating system, and the driver’s seat has 22 possible adjustments for maximum comfort. Front passenger is only offered 16 adjustments with adjustable lumbar support.
Tri-zone automatic climate control with level sensor, carbon dioxide is included in the basic equipment. Multimedia system is equipped with a 12.3-inch touch screen on the center console, and an additional 7-inch screen on the dashboard, between the tachometer and the speedometer of the car. Sound system includes 17 speakers system, Lexicon 7.1 surround sound, alternatives are proposed.
Special attention in the luxury cars given to the comfort of the passengers of the second row. That is why the top-end trim rear sofa new Genesis is equipped with a servo-controlled adjustment, heating and ventilation. In addition, there is adjustable lumbar support and memory settings.
Naturally, the front and rear Windows equipped with electric drive. In addition, passengers in the second row there are two 9.2-inch multimedia display of high resolution. The car is also equipped with USB connectors and wireless charging function mobile devices.

Power of both engines is more than enough for a fairly heavy sedan equipped with many energy-intensive systems, so future buyers will not have to choose between price and mediocre thrust-to-weight, since mass is in the range of 2.42 to 2.59 tons, depending on the installed equipment.
Both motors are aggregated eight-speed automatic transmission. In addition, the choice offered rear-or all-wheel drive.
Due to the electronic transfer case in the slippery coating on the front axle can be transferred 40% of the torque. All-wheel drive system is fully controlled with rotary switch with four positions: Eco, Smart, Sport and individual settings. In Sport mode, the system transmits 10% of the torque to the front and 90 on the rear axle, and in Eco mode the car actually translates into rear wheel drive mode.
Regardless of control switch four-wheel drive, automatic transmission will select the mode based on the driving style and the torque of the engine. It should be noted that the emphasis on handling unites a new brand from BMW, as the emphasis on rear-wheel drive involves actively driving and perfect handling of the car. Additionally, the most beneficial this decision is reflected in the behavior of the car on slippery surfaces, and allows you to easily adjust the trajectory of light reset the gas pedal.
Genesis G90 2017 have not yet passed official tests according to system NHTSA or IIHS, but the Hyundai has conducted its own crash tests and expects a 5-star rating from the NHTSA and IIHS.

The car was very harmonious, and it is worthy of the world leaders luxury segment, but, unfortunately, the separation of the main brand never passes so quickly.
