Hyundai's new luxury sub-brand, Genesis has revealed a pair of design sketches for its first model, the G90. This model will be the brand's flagship and replace the Equus sedan.
Hyundai describes the G90 as “elegantly designed” and “technology packed.” This will be the first production model to use the Genesis' ‘Athletic Elegance’ design language. The sketches show off a sedan that is low-slung with a long hood, small greenhouse, and a fastback silhouette. The front end boasts a large hexagonal grille found on the current Genesis sedan and a set of headlights that wrap into the front fenders.
“Genesis’ new large luxury sedan G90 will deliver a concept of ‘New Luxury’ to our customers. The G90 sits at the pinnacle of the Genesis brand and demonstrates how we apply our human-centered values to give our customer true satisfaction in every aspect of the vehicle ownership experience,” said Woong-Chul Yang, Head of Hyundai Motor R&D Center and Vice Chairman of Hyundai Motor.
Hyundai will introduce the G90 in South Korea next month.

As the Genesis brand’s flagship model, G90 is a blueprint for change and innovation that will distinguish the Genesis brand. Majoring on ‘human-centered’ 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.
G90 also showcases the Genesis brand’s hallmark design style ‘Athletic Elegance’, interpreted by the newly-formed Prestige Design Division to bring graceful and profound elegance to G90’s significant proportions. Crowned by the Genesis emblem, the grand radiator grille combined with sophisticated headlamps communicates the car’s dynamic, future-orientated character. A theme that flows along a body-length character line to the long and agile rear lamp cluster completes the Athletic Elegance of G90.
Hyundai Motor created the Genesis brand for a new generation of discerning consumers. Capitalizing on its success in the fast-growing global car market, Hyundai Motor will launch six new Genesis models by 2020.
The launch of G90 is scheduled for early next month in Korea.
