‘Horizontal Architecture’ is the key theme in the interior of the 2020 Genesis G90. Hyundai-owned Genesis has unveiled a comprehensive update to its flagship sedan as it seeks to grow its global market share with a brand centered around “emotive products with exceptional design”.
The interior design is said to embody the ethos of ‘Horizontal Architecture’, dominated by a harmonious flow of horizontal surfaces with a parallel layout that includes the air ventilation system. The audio controls are designed to maximize simplicity and provide an intuitive user experience.
The G90’s premium materials and finishes are said to befit a flagship, including chrome plating applied to switches and premium leather wrapping applied to the center console. Authentic, open-pore wood acts as a garnish, as does double stitching and piping throughout the cabin.
The 2020 G90 introduces multiple technology firsts for the Genesis brand. It is the first Genesis vehicle to offer over-the-air wireless updates for maps and software. Its 12.3in display navigation system now incorporates touchscreen controls and a copper GUI. The split screens are highlighted with signature copper accents. There’s also standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Mirror Link.
The interior environment should be more serene thanks to active noise cancellation (ANC), which reduces noise, vibration and harshness by using audio technology to reduce unwanted noise intrusion. Meanwhile occupant convenience is claimed to be enhanced when entering tunnels through automatic external air prevention.
