Launched for 2017, the G90 massive sedan has been redesigned for 2023, that includes recent exterior and inside styling, up to date cabin expertise, and a brand new high drivetrain choice.
The 2023 G90 is obtainable in two trim ranges, every decided primarily by powertrain. The usual 3.5T AWD is powered by a 375-horsepower 3.5-liter turbocharged V6. Changing a 5.0-liter V8 as the highest engine providing—and high trim degree—is the three.5T E-Supercharger AWD, which options an electrical supercharger and mild-hybrid help and is rated at 409 horsepower.
The three.5T AWD begins at $88,400, whereas the E-Supercharger AWD begins at $98,700. Our take a look at automobile, with vacation spot cost and premium paint got here to $101,295—making G90 the primary Genesis product to crack the $100,000 barrier.
On the highway the E-Supercharger drivetrain is surprisingly refined, and really fast. Energy is out there nearly instantly, and there’s loads of oomph left for passing and merging at greater speeds.

The brand new G90 boasts a deft melding of trip consolation and informal sportiness, although no critical driver will ever accuse Genesis engineers of getting constructed a canyon carver. That mentioned, the G90 is simply sporty sufficient to maintain issues attention-grabbing.
The cabin itself is lavishly appointed. As I’ve famous relating to the interiors of different Genesis merchandise, there’s nothing right here that may not be applicable in a Bentley. And for the indulgent, could we advocate the Genesis Temper Curator? The techniques, which options Vitality, Delight, Consolation, and Care modes, manipulates cabin sound, lighting, curtains, therapeutic massage, and even scent, to offer a fastidiously crafted in-cabin expertise. You solely assume that is overkill till you’ve skilled the Curator from the passenger seat on an extended journey. Although, even then, it’s fairly excessive.

The G90 isn’t the flagship sedan cut price it as soon as was, although the G90 is not meaningfully subordinate when it comes to expertise or content material to the massive German sedans both. And when it comes to styling, we predict the G90 stands alone.
G-90’s seems to be are putting (somewhat attention-getting actually). Nonetheless, the take a look at automobile’s flat white paint had the impact of wanting considerably soiled even when the automobile was fairly clear.
Inside room—headroom and legroom—is nice in each rows. Properly appointed seats are comfy. Rear occupants get pleasure from power-adjustable seats with a management console that additionally offers them a say in local weather and audio picks (although it restricts capability to only two in again).
The trunk is vast and deep. General house is beneficiant—it needs to be since rear the seats don‘t retract as in smaller automobiles.
The G90 proves a luxurious automobile doesn’t want a maddeningly complicated infotainment system. Entry to options is simple to determine; the display is a “toucher” that makes direct picks potential for individuals who desire that sort of operation. Driving and comfort controls are inside simple attain of the motive force. (There’s one thing in regards to the angled blades on both facet of the instrument cluster with trunk-release and panel-lighting buttons that jogs my memory of overdone “space-age” instrument arrays on Chrysler makes, circa 1961.)

Although a fairly large automobile by immediately’s requirements, the G90 drives prefer it’s somewhat smaller than it’s. Experience is fairly comfortable with out going flabby, even in “Consolation,” or overly stiff in “Sport.” I felt just a few odd standing begins—momentarily delayed, then abruptly engaged—however this wasn’t constant. The engine was pretty quiet underneath concerted acceleration, and it delivered simple cruising and passing energy.
