Extra Deluxe: The Genesis G90 L goes through a facelift
A while ago, South Korean car manufacturer Genesis introduced us to a restyled version of its G90 full-size sedan. Its elongated variant, the G90 L, received a similar facelift today, so let us perhaps have a look at what is new.
First off, you will have no trouble whatsoever telling the facelifted Genesis G90 L from its predecessor, since the two cars are completely different both in front and in the back. The updated version is still 5,495 millimeters (18 ft.) long, but at 2,270 kilograms (5,000 lbs), it is 45 kg (100 lbs) heavier than the pre-facelift one.
The interior still lacks those fancy transformer seats that can turn into beds. Instead, there are the same single power seats as before. Rear passengers now have access to separate infotainment touchscreens, as well as individual climate control settings. Broad central arm rests offer storage pockets, as well as night lights, the front right seat passenger can now take advantage of a slide-out foot support.
The interior finish is more deluxe than ever, now involving semi-aniline leather bearing an original stitched pattern, genuine Alcantara painted to match, and occasional decorative inserts.
The car still ships with the same five-liter, naturally-aspirated V8 engine rated at 425 hp (317 kW), linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD.
The Genesis G90 L facelift is already available in South Korea, where it sells for the equivalent of U.S. $138,000.
