While some automakers are throwing in the towel on sedans, Genesis is giving its flagship G90 a good polish instead. Updated for 2023, the full-size luxury sedan gains styling tweaks inside and out, a new suspension that promises a smoother ride, and new high-tech features to automate the driving experience.

Exterior Refinements

The 2023 G90 sports a new face, with an update to its signature grille and slimmer two-line headlights that mimic the Genesis badge. The sedan’s rear end is also updated with full-width taillights and an elongated trunk. Genesis says it lowered elements including the license plate, sensors and reverse lights to draw focus to the upper area of the vehicle and to achieve a cleaner look.

The G90 is available as a standard sedan or a long-wheelbase model that adds roughly 7.5 inches of interior space in the second row. The long-wheelbase model also features an exclusive 20-inch wheel design.

Customized Comfort Inside

The interior of the G90 blends high-tech elements, such as an integrated cluster and navigation screen, with premium materials like glass and aluminum in the center console. With a focus on sustainability, elements including recycled newspaper can be found in the vehicle’s trim along with a traditional Korean inlay technique in the vehicle’s metal, wood and forged-carbon elements.

The sedan provides rear-seat passengers the option to customize their ride by offering two panoramic moonroofs for the first and second row, which can be operated independently. The second-row seats can also recline separately, and new storage options like a large tray for books are added. A touchscreen found in the second-row armrest lets passengers set their own climate control modes, seat positions, massage and lighting settings.

To create a customizable sensory retreat for occupants, the Genesis offers a 3D-surround sound function that uses a Bang & Olufsen 23-speaker system to optimize musical themes like ‘Boston Symphony Hall.’ A Mood Curator further tailors the vehicle’s cabin experience by controlling ambient lighting, the sound system and Genesis’ first-ever fragrance system that offers the choice of three different scents.

A Smoother, Quieter Ride

The G90 will house a new 3.5-liter turbocharged engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission to replace the outgoing options: a standard 365-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 and an available 420-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Genesis says performance specs for the new engine will be revealed closer to the vehicle’s arrival.

In addition to the new engine, the G90 will get new suspension technology for a smoother ride and improved handling, according to the automaker. A camera-based Preview-Electronic Control Suspension system that monitors road conditions to optimize the suspension in various conditions will come standard. An air suspension offers three settings to improve stability depending on conditions: During high-speed driving, the system can lower the vehicle height for improved wind resistance, raise the vehicle on rough or uneven terrain, and elevate the front wheels when going down a steep slope.

Genesis says a quieter ride will accompany the smoother driving experience that comes from the suspension updates. This is thanks to a noise-canceling system called Active Noise Control-Road, which deadens road noise in each of the sedan’s seats.

New Automated Tech

Another way the G90 aims to help drivers take a load off is with new automation features including an EasyClose system that closes the vehicle’s doors with the push of a button or a press of the brake pedal (for the driver-side door). A hands-free smart trunk system uses sensors to automatically open the sedan’s trunk when the driver stands nearby, and a Digital Key system uses a smartphone app that lets the driver unlock and start the vehicle by simply touching the door handle.

The driver can also outsource tough parking jobs to the G90’s Remote Smart Parking Assist, which uses a wide-angle camera that offers standard perpendicular parking, parallel parking or diagonal parking capabilities.

A spokesperson for Genesis confirmed that the Genesis G90 is expected to arrive in the U.S. in 2022 as a 2023 model. Specs for the U.S. model will be shared closer to its on-sale date.
