Look at the styling you see on the new Genesis G90 sedan, some of that styling remains and it's a very Bentley style headlamp design, all LED. I love this split tier design which gives it a great unique look. with the daytime running lights we rolled out it's got functional side air curtains it's all painted here which is really beautiful a little bit of chrome trim just goes in a little bit and an angle when we come across that big grill now this grill is B a brand name Genesis brand love the crisscross pattern it's got its forward facing camera nice chrome frame all the way to the top and then when we go down it's the same design but it's not glossy black all its safety tech is hidden behind of this panel here very clean finish even the underside nice and clean now when we get on the hood i love what they have done they took the genesis logo which a lot of people have said is like aston martin asked bentley asked if you know what it suits the brand very well and look at how they took the lines of the bodywork and circled the very very clean Genesis badging all the way to the windshield. laughs, now that we come to the curve, it can be seen from this angle. the way the front end spreads out a bit and I really like the way the green goes all the way now that we get down to this wheel and tire combination you actually have three different wheel options with this being the best one It's the ultimate wheel 22-inch wheel Check out the intricate design work that goes into many nice touches The Genesis logo The massive six-piston caliper It's going to clamp down just like you Clamping down like Bigfoot clamping down on your head as it stomps on you that's the kind of stopping power you'll get fully vented rotors I love how much clearance we get from the top of the tire to the inside of the fender nice and clean all around but that 265 wheel on the series sidewall 40 22 inch wheel as we go down the side another signature of the Genesis brand besides that grille will be the side marker lights with the m oops very nicely done clean look like I said you'll see this on the new G 90 sedan as well the great news is to have the lighting here we don't have to have it higher on the side mirrors we keep working down as it's one of the only real wheel drive rigs very similar to lincoln aviator so this is a competition. not only for the BMW x5, also for the Audi q7, but also for the Lincoln Navigator, especially since it is rear-wheel drive, you can get all-wheel drive, of course, as an option, we continue for the very low side rails of the roof.
