Genesis has been getting a lot right lately, mostly with the manual-optioned Genesis G70 sedan we’re kind of obsessed about. But this year, the company will focus on its bigger car at the LA Auto Show, the facelifted Genesis G90—photos of which seem to have leaked early.
A tipster sent us two images of what appears to be the updated Genesis G90, at least when compared to the automaker’s own teaser for the car’s reveal at the end of the month.
The names of the files sent to us indicate they are screenshots of Instagram posts, which I couldn’t find myself, but if you reverse-Google the photos they trace back to a Korean “news bulletin” forum-like website that seemed to start sharing them around approximately five hours ago. The earliest post featuring the photos on Instagram that I could find only went up about three hours ago.
The first Genesis G90 went into production back in 2015 as a replacement to the old Hyundai Equus, alongside the extremely similar Kia K900. It looks like the facelifted G90 will get a bigger, stranger shaped grille, and wide, single-bar taillights that remind me a lot of what Lincoln is currently doing.
It looks fine? The big grille is pretty uninspiring and the drooping point is distracting, but does it matter? These questions will likely not be answered when the is completely revealed at the LA Auto Show around November 30.
