Following a reveal earlier today, now we bring full technical specifications for the Equus-replacing Genesis G90.

Without further ado, the G90 is 204.9 inches (5205 mm) long, 75.4 inches (1915 mm) wide, 58.8 inches (1495 mm) tall, and with a 124.4 inches (3160 mm) wheelbase. Depending on the model’s configuration, weight varies from 5,335 lbs (2,420 kg) to 5,721 lbs (2,595 kg) and all of them have a trunk capacity of 17.1 cu ft. (484 liters). Genesis gives prospect customers the opportunity to choose between newly designed 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels.

As far as the engines are concerned, three units will be offered: the entry-level 3.8-liter GDI, the mid-range 3.3-liter T-GDI, and the range-topping 5.0-liter GDI. The 3.8 is rated at 310 hp (231 kW) and 293 lb-ft (397 Nm) which is enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 6.9 seconds. Upgrade to the newly developed 3.3 turbo and you get to control 365 hp (272 kW) and 377 lb-ft (510 Nm) granting the full-size luxury sedan with a sprint in 6.2 seconds. The V8 is the cream of the crop with 418 hp (312 kW) and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm), enough for a quick run in 5.7 seconds.

These engines work with an 8-speed automatic transmission featuring a lock-up torque converter and send power to the rear wheels, but an optional H-TRAC AWD will be available. Genesis mentions the suspension setup consists of a multi-link arrangement with high-performance dampers to enable a silky smooth ride. This can be enhanced by getting the optional Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension system.

Reducing NVH levels was a top priority during the G90’s development as the engineers spent “hundreds of hours to fine tuning every aspect of noise reduction and comfort enhancement.” The end result according to Hyundai’s premium marque is “best-in-class ratings for in-cabin quietness.”

As for the interior, the driver’s seat can be electronically-controlled in one of the 22 ways available to find the perfect seating position. There’s also a fancy Lexicon surround sound system working together with the 12.3-inch infotainment system. Other goodies include a three-zone AC, wireless charging, VIP passengers seats with 14-way adjustability, semi-aniline leather upholstery, and real wood trim.

In terms of safety, the 2016 Genesis G90 hosts a plethora of systems, such as Smart High Beam Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection, Active Blind Spot Detection, Driver Attention Alert, etc. There’s also a one-megapixel rearview camera sharing screen with the 360-degree Around View Monitor.

It will go on sale in South Korea as the “Genesis EQ900” at the beginning of next year, with the international “G90” arriving later on in the United States, China, Russia, and countries in the Middle East. An additional five Genesis-branded models will be out over the next 5 years.

Note: All the technical specifications refer to the KDM-spec Genesis EQ900.
