SEOUL – Genesis has revealed the second generation of the G90, its flagship large our-door sedan including a plethora of luxury features as well as numerous performance and platform enhancements, including adjustable brake modes.
G90 is equipped with a gasoline 3.5-liter turbocharged engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
To support strong engine power and torque while ensuring efficient cooling of the brake discs, the G90 utilizes multiple cooling mechanisms, including undercover guide hole, dust cover hole, and wheel guard cooling vanes.
It also features a new Brake Mode, “Chauffeur,” allowing drivers to control braking force. It’s one of three built-in brake modes that drivers can utilize to suit their preferences and driving conditions.
Genesis has outfitted G90 with new suspension technology that offers a smoother ride and better handling performance. It also includes Preview-Electronic Control Suspension (Preview-ECS) as a basic feature, which optimizes control of the suspension by utilizing a front camera to recognize road conditions and provide a smooth riding experience in any driving environment.
For added driving stability, G90 features Multi Chamber air suspension, which alters air pressure in the air springs. Three settings are available depending on driving conditions. When driving at high speeds, the air suspension system lowers the height of the vehicle to reduce wind resistance, improving fuel efficiency and ultimately providing a more stable driving experience.
When driving on rough or uneven surfaces, the feature heightens the car to protect its undercarriage and cut down on vibrations from the road. The vehicle’s height can stay at a certain level regardless of changes in weight from passengers or luggage. This allows for a more comfortable ride while adding stability.
In addition, using sensors, the car can elevate its front wheels when going down a steep slope. This provides stronger suspension to prevent damage from contact between the flat road and the undercarriage after the slope. When driving on rough roads, the feature heightens the car by 25 mm (0.98 in) at both ends, the front and rear wheels, to protect its undercarriage from touching the surface of the road and ensure a stable driving experience.
Rear Wheel Steering (RWS) on G90 steers the rear wheels to a maximum of four degrees in a low-speed counter-phase (moving them in the opposite direction of the front wheels) and to a maximum of two degrees in high-speed in-phase (moving them in the same direction as the front wheels).
This allows for easier maneuvering in tight spaces with fewer corrections, and makes the turning radius of G90 similar to that of a midsize car. It also improves cornering stability and allows the vehicle to make agile movements when changing lanes or avoiding obstacles at medium and high speeds.
