The verdict: The Genesis G90 debuted for the 2017 model year, and for 2020, it gets a fresh new face that adds a lot of drama as well as a huge new touchscreen multimedia system and more safety features. In the backseat, meanwhile, there was plenty of room to accommodate two car seats.
Does it fit three car seats? No.
Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat scored below in our Car Seat Check of the 2020 Genesis G90.

- Forward-facing convertible: We had an easier time connecting to the lower anchors with the convertible in the forward position; its chunky base didn’t get in the way as much as in the rear-facing position. We raised the head restraint and it fit well.
- Booster: After raising the head restraint, the booster fit well. The sedan’s stable buckles mean that kids should have an easy time strapping in independently.
- Latch: The two sets of lower anchors sit just within the seat bight, where the back and bottom cushions meet; you have to use a bit of muscle to push past the stiff leather to access them. The three top tether anchors on the rear shelf are easy to find and use.
- Infant: After muscling past the leather seat cushions to connect to the anchor, we had no issues installing this car seat and our 5-foot, 6-inch-tall front passenger had ample legroom.
- Rear-facing convertible: As with the infant, the installation was OK and the front passenger’s legroom wasn’t impacted.
About Cars.com’s Car Seat Checks
Editors Jennifer Geiger, Jennifer Newman and Matt Schmitz are certified child safety seat installation technicians.
For the Car Seat Check, we use a Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 30 infant-safety seat, a Britax Marathon convertible seat and Graco TurboBooster seat. The front seats are adjusted for a 6-foot driver and a shorter passenger. The three child seats are installed in the second row. The booster seat sits behind the driver’s seat, and the infant and convertible seats are installed behind the front passenger seat.
We also install the forward-facing convertible in the second row’s middle seat with the booster and infant seat in the outboard seats to see if three car seats will fit; a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. If there’s a third row, we install the booster seat and a forward-facing convertible. Learn more about how we conduct our Car Seat Checks.
Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat, and that Latch anchors have a weight limit of 65 pounds, including the weight of the child and the weight of the seat itself.
