The G90 is pitched as the flagship within the Genesis sub-brand, sitting above the Genesis sedan sold in Australia. It showcases the brand’s ‘Athletic Elegance’ design language with a distinguishing front end and Genesis emblem in the middle.

From the front, the slab-like body features a bold body-length character line, with curvaceous wheel arches, a high waistline, and a neatly finished off tail with an integrated rear lip spoiler. There’s also long rear doors accommodating a large cabin and abundant rear seat space. Hyundai spoke about the concept in a statement, saying,

“As the Genesis brand’s flagship model, G90 is a blueprint for change and innovation that will distinguish the Genesis brand. Majoring on ‘human-centred’ technology combined with engaging driving dynamics, G90 boasts a raft of world-best safety features and technological innovations to set itself apart in the luxury market.”

Hyundai is planning to launch six new Genesis models by 2020, with a production version of the G90 set to go on sale in its home market in Korea later this year.
