Genesis launches luxury G90 in Mideast

DUBAI, September 8, 2016

The newest luxury car, the Genesis G90, has arrived in the Middle East after being unveiled to the region’s media in Dubai this week.

Offering superior levels of comfort and technology, advanced safety and driver assistance features, and a choice of three V6 and V8 engines including an all-new twin-turbo option, the G90 has been engineered from the ground up to offer customers a distinctive choice, the company said.

The impressive full-size sedan will be the flagship of the all-new Genesis brand, and is the first in a planned range of cars that will redefine the top end of the automotive market, it said.

It is due to be followed by the more driver-focused G80, including sports variant, before the end of 2016. The compact G70 is planned for a 2017 launch, while two SUVs and a sports coupe are expected by 2020 to complete an enticing six-model line-up.

“The Genesis G90 aims to be the best in a very competitive class, and we believe we have achieved that,” said Genesis head of Africa and Middle East operations, Mike Song. “No effort has been spared in the pursuit of excellence, and the result is a vehicle that sets the highest possible standards of comfort, refinement and quality. It is a car that will impress in every aspect of its design and engineering, and to be a Genesis owner will set our customers apart as being part of a very exclusive circle.”

Genesis aims to create cars around customers’ unique lifestyles, with a strong emphasis on originality. The G90 is a powerful representation of the new brand’s ‘Athletic Elegance’ design language, which will be carried through to future Genesis products, Song said.

The sedan creates a strong first impression on the road, with a prominent bonnet, long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs creating an immediate sense of purpose.

The passenger cabin is lovingly crafted from the finest materials and textures, and with meticulous attention to detail. Soft leather seats are adjustable to the smallest detail of personal preference, while superior levels of noise insulation ensure that passengers can enjoy their journey with a sense of pure relaxation.

The experience is enhanced by human-focused technology throughout the interior, from advanced seating and climate control functions, through to the intuitive multimedia system and wireless device charging, all designed for simplicity and convenience, carefully avoiding needless complication.

“Every detail of the Genesis G90 has been crafted to enhance the sense of luxury and prestige,” said global head of Genesis, Manfred Fitzgerald. “With Genesis, we start by understanding those things that create enjoyment in owning a luxury car, and then we bring design, technology and careful engineering together to create something that will excite the senses and that people will desire.”

Attention to detail through the Genesis G90’s development has been meticulous. Advanced ergonomic analysis dictates the positioning of driver controls, passenger comfort and entertainment features, while exclusive materials are sourced from the finest artisans around the world. For optimised comfort, Genesis offers an impressive 22-way power driver seat.

Vehicle dynamics, including ride comfort and road holding in adverse conditions, are optimised by combining an advanced H-TRAC all-wheel-drive system with the first application of Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension (GACS).

G90 owners will immediately notice the highest standards of refined performance. These characteristics are central to the Genesis brand, with development teams carrying out rigorous performance testing at the company’s European Technical Center at the Nürburgring in Germany and the California Proving Grounds in the Mojave Desert.

Even with this sporty and responsive character, the G90 interior environment remains well-mannered. G90 powertrain options include a 3.8-liter direct injected V6, an all-new 3.3-liter direct-injected, twin-turbocharged V6, or the award-winning Tau 5.0-liter direct-injected V8 for ultimate power, coupled to an eight-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.

With advanced technological innovation at its core, the G90 features Genesis Smart Sense, a suite of driver safety technologies. These features cover the full spectrum of active and passive safety, from driver alertness and focus to total occupant safety, and even the safety of other drivers around you. This suite brings together systems such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start, Smart Blind Spot Detection and Lane Keep Assist.

Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), utilising sensor fusion technology, helps avoid a potential collision or reduce its impact. With this system, G90 will employ automatic braking when it detects another vehicle or pedestrian at an unsafe closing rate of speed. This system uses the front radar from the Smart Cruise Control system and the forward camera from the Lane Keep Assist (LKA) to provide this extra margin of safety, the company said. – TradeArabia News Service
