Hyundai's premium brand Genesis unveiled its new G90 luxury sedan, a face-lifted version of the EQ900, on Thursday. The carmaker will start taking pre-orders for the G90 next Monday ahead of its launch on Nov. 27.
Hyundai released its first full-size luxury sedan, the Equus, in 1999. When Genesis was launched in 2015, the Equus was renamed the EQ900 in the domestic market.
The carmaker changed the name once again to the G90 for consistency with the global market. The Genesis lineup now comprises the G70 sports sedan, G80 large sedan and G90 full-size sedan.
"We will strengthen the identity of the Genesis brand with the G90 and step up efforts to expand its presence in the global market," a Hyundai spokesman said.
Hyundai will showcase the G90 in Busan, Daegu, Incheon and Seoul until Nov. 25. The 3.8-liter gasoline model costs W77.06 million and the 3.3-liter turbo gasoline model W80.90 million (US$1=W1,117). The 5.0-liter gasoline version is priced at W118.78 million.
