The newly created luxury brand has just presented back at home its first product – the EQ900/G90 – and is now already looking towards the future.
Genesis has recently confirmed it will have a full model range by 2020 consisting of six products – one Korean press release showcased the lineup as having a midsize sedan, a large sedan, a midsize SUV, a large SUV and a “sports type coupe,” all of them joining the flagship G90 / EQ900 super luxury sedan that was just showcased back at home in KDM spec. Genesis has been keeping all details close to its heart but in a previous post we told you about Hyundai Motor America chief executive officer Dave Zuchowski saying the premium marquee will ultimately have even a base sedan looking to take the fight to the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C Class. Additionally, he also hinted the model lineup will include crossovers instead of off-road prone body-on-frame sport utility vehicles. This means there will be car-derived architectures, but other than that it’s anyone’s guess to deliver further details.
As we told you recently, the Genesis G90 will be presented as a successor to the Hyundai Equus and will come sporting three different engines at home in South Korea – a 3.8-liter GDI V6 with 310 hp (231 kW), a 3.3-liter T-GDI V6 with 365 hp (272 kW), and the flagship 5.0-liter GDI V8 churning out 418 hp (312 kW) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque.
