2020 Genesis G90 Overview
This is the big boy from Genesis, a smooth-riding flagship sedan with plenty of baked-in opulence. Confidently restyled for 2020, the G90 is also packed with additional sound-deadening technologies that take an already-quiet executive sedan to noise levels that Genesis claims are the lowest in the segment. For 2020 the G90 also includes nine new or updated safety systems. It’s big, it’s quiet, it’s safer, and now it looks like a proper posh yacht.
Like last year, the G90 comes in only two trims: 3.3T Premium and 5.0 Ultimate. The 3.3T Premium uses Genesis’s twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 producing 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. The 5.0 Ultimate offers 5.0-liter V8 motivation good for 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Both trims come with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and both can be had with either rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).
Like every Genesis model, the G90 comes stacked with standard technology and safety features that will cost extra on most cars competing in its segment. In fact, a stripped G90 doesn’t exist. Pick an engine, and pick RWD or AWD. Nineteen-inch wheels, which themselves feature designed-in sound-damping technology, are the only other meaningful option.
For 2020 the G90’s body is virtually all new—only the doors and roof panel remain from the 2019 model. Up front a massive grid-pattern grille, the new signature Crest Grille, matches the optional wheels, and the full LED headlights are redesigned.
Standard tech and infotainment features on the 3.3T Premium include a 12.3-inch touchscreen with navigation, 17-speaker audio system, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Wireless device charging plus a 7.0-inch LCD screen in the instrument cluster are also included. The 2020 enhancements also bring a glut of standard safety equipment: adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision avoidance, and a surround-view monitor with ultrasonic parking sensors. Every G90 comes with adaptive dampers and 10 airbags.
In addition to the V8 engine, stepping up to the 5.0 Ultimate trim adds a backseat entertainment system with dual 10.3-inch displays, ventilated rear seats, and backseat vanity mirrors.
Pricing for the 2020 Genesis G90 starts at $72,200 and tops out at $78,200, not including destination or options.
Although the 2020 G90 lacks the boundary-pushing technologies offered by BMW and Mercedes, its simple, honest approach to luxury is respectable. And the tens of thousands of dollars it saves over German competitors can’t be ignored.
