Genesis is known for creating beautiful vehicles, which is why it should come as no surprise that two of the brand’s models were recently honored as 2019 Good Design Award winners. Both the Mint concept car and the 2020 G90 sedan earned recognition in this prestigious annual competition.
“As a relatively new brand, Genesis has introduced a design that greatly resonates with the luxury car market,” said Luc Donckerwolke, Hyundai Motor Group’s chief design officer. “The G90 is the embodiment of flagship transportation while the Mint reinterprets what a luxurious, city-focused runabout could be. The Good Design awards are a high-water mark we aim for each time we put pen to paper.”
The brand’s Athletic Elegance design philosophy is reflected in the Mint Concept with its sculpted body lines and sweeping silhouette. The all-electric vehicle has a range of innovative design elements to help it maximize space, while also providing top-notch performance and comfort. For instance, the G-Matrix diamond-shaped pattern is used on the battery floor to help the air circulate and the battery cool. Other innovations include a swiveling bench seat to easily get in and out of the vehicle and a storage compartment that is accessed through reverse scissor doors.
The 2020 G90 is also designed with Athletic Elegance in mind. Its headlamps and taillamps incorporate the G-Matrix design, while its spacious interior utilizes the brand’s Horizontal Architecture for an elegant feel.
While the Mint concept hasn’t entered production yet, the 2020 G90 is available for you to admire — and test-drive — right here at Genesis Downtown.
