The refreshed 2020 Genesis G90 gets a price boost to go with the more upscale restyling and upgraded technology — but the brand’s flagship sedan remains a bargain for premium buyers compared with full-size sedans from other luxury makers.
Powertrains carry over from 2019 and the new G90 3.3T Premium with a 365-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 will start at $73,195 (all prices include a $995 destination charge), up $2,850 from the 2019. The 5.0 Ultimate with a 420-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 starts at $76,695, a $1,850 increase from the outgoing version. Those prices are with rear-wheel drive; adding all-wheel drive is $2,500 extra.
That pretty much ends the list of options, too. A very complete list of features is part of the deal as Hyundai’s luxury marque works to gain badge credibility among luxury buyers. The amenities range from premium audio including rear-seat controls and 22-way power driver’s seats to adaptive suspension. Beyond the exterior styling, the 2020’s leather interior adds open-pore wood trim and the 12.3-inch multimedia display, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, is now a touchscreen in addition to having a knob and button controller on the center console.
New standard safety and driver assist technology includes a lane-centering system along with the adaptive cruise control, more views for the 360-degree camera system, updates to the forward emergency braking system to detect lane changes and oncoming traffic, and a blind spot system that now includes a video in the instrument cluster display of the blind spot when you activate the turn signal.

The pricing is several thousand dollars less than the base prices of the flagship sedans from Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz — and those cars run up from there if you add options standard on the G90, starting with paying extra for most of their paint colors. The 2020 Lexus LS 500 is comparable at $76,475 (including $1,025 destination), but it, too, requires checking some package options for comparable bells and whistles.
