Most luxury car shoppers hear the name Genesis and they think of the popular 1980’s pop band fronted by Phil Collins. The group’s catchy and often vexing hits like Sussudio and In Too Deep remain incessant easy listening.
But Genesis is also America’s newest luxury automotive brand. Launched just last year as the luxury arm of Hyundai (much like Lexus is to Toyota and Infiniti is to Nissan), Genesis offers a quickly expanding line up of sedans and soon SUVs. The 2018 Genesis G70 sports sedan will launch later this year, while the G80 sedan and the largest Genesis, the 2018 Genesis G90, are on sale now. Genesis has also teased an SUV model called the GV80, which is expected to inspire a production model in the near future, and the brand says that it will launch six new Genesis models by 2021.
The 2018 Genesis G90 is the company’s flagship. Like all Genesis models the full-size luxury sedan, which competes with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8, is built in South Korea. Read on to learn 10 things you need to know about this brand new luxury sedan.
