Re: The new Genesis G90

not sure this is the most recent G90 thread...
Genesis G90 to start at $69K in US market
LeftlaneNews.com


Reflecting the Korean automaker's ambitious plan for the brand, the flagship sedan will start at $69,050 (including $950 freight). The base model is equipped with a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6, sending 365 horsepower to the rear wheels.

Opting for all-wheel drive brings the 3.3T package up to $71,550, slightly higher than the 5.0-liter V8 RWD configuration at $70,650. The range-topping all-wheel-drive V8 edition fetches $73,150.

For comparison, the G90's entry point is well above the Cadillac CT6...

Re: The new Genesis G90

The interior looks so dated and boring.
The whole car looks like Buick's interpretation of a Mercedes in 1999!

Very nice car, a little on the bland side, but a very nice interior and inoffensive exterior priced right can go a long ways!



What is the red triangle in the center of the dash? Hazard lights? It sticks out like a sore thumb.

Moving onto the interior, throw out EVERYTHING you know about the Equus and the Hyundai company in general; this car means business. Leather is soft, abundant, and supple, virtually everything that you can touch is covered in either leather, metal, or wood, and the attention to detail is fantastic. Even the headliner feels fantastic and of very high quality. The back seat is huge, roomy, and everything is high quality.

Re: Hyundai Announces "Genesis" Luxury Brand

I remember sitting in the Equus at the NY Auto Show and a lot of the switches like the power seat switched were really flimsy and cheap. Later that week Autoline had one of those online shows with a chat box and I mentioned that and others agreed with me that had sat in the car.

Genesis on the other hand I can't complain about, one that I sat in was very well done. My biggest issue was that only the drivers seat was heated and cooled while the passenger was heated only which they fixed with the redesign.

Re: Hyundai Announces "Genesis" Luxury Brand

I was in the back of a Genesis a couple years ago and the headroom was terrible. Another issue for me was the grab handle above the door seemed to stick out and almost contact my head.

Equus needs some work.

And I'm saying this as a Lincoln fan.
Eh, I sat in the Genesis at the auto show a month or so ago, and was very surprised at some of the obviously cheap materials used, especially like the door handles and similar things like that. Same went for the Kia K900. The handles on both seemed like they'd snap off over time they were that cheap feeling.

Re: Hyundai Announces "Genesis" Luxury Brand

Former Lamborghini exec to head Hyundai's Genesis brand
LeftlaneNews

by Justin King - Dec 28th, 2015

Hyundai has appointed former Lamborghini executive Manfred Fitzgerald to lead its newly formed Genesis brand.

During more than a decade at Lamborghini, Fitzgerald served as the director of branding and design. He is credited with helping the Raging Bull transform from a "prototype car company" to an established luxury marque as sales increased by 10-fold...

..."Based in Hyundai Motor Headquarters Seoul, Mr. Fitzgerald will be in charge of establishing and executing strategies for the Genesis brand as the Senior Vice President," Hyundai said in a statement. "For the brand to set a strong foothold in the global luxury car market, he will take a core role in brand strategy, marketing and other business operations within the Genesis brand."

The Genesis brand will eventually encompass six new models by the end of the decade...

...Unlike most luxury brands operated by mainstream automakers, Hyundai will not establish a separate sales network for its Genesis lineup. The company will also be targeting 'new luxury' buyers, attempting to snag customers who are ready to take a step upmarket but have not yet decided on a particular brand. The strategy appears to acknowledge the difficulties in converting customers who already own a luxury vehicle from an established brand.

Re: The new Genesis G90

People give Lincoln a hard time for switch gear.....the stuff in that G90 looks cheap and ready to break already. The color didn't even seem to match.
