2018 Genesis G90 review: Our expert's take

What it is: Genesis is Hyundai's young stand-alone luxury division, and the G90 full-size sedan is its flagship model. Though less expensive than German luxury sedans like the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Audi A8, the G90 is roughly the same size and is designed for the same customer.

A glove-box-housed CD/DVD player is now standard. The 3.3T Premium trim level gains standard adaptive full-LED headlights while the 5.0 Ultimate model adds a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system.

One of the most reliable vehicles I’ve owned!!!

This vehicle can be placed along side of the Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Lexus, etc. I test drove all of the previously mentioned vehicles and the G90 provides all of what I wanted and with extra features. You get more bang for you buck!!!! No Buyers Remorse on this end!!!!


Great Car

This is my third vehicle in Hyundai luxury line. I have owned the 2016 hyundai genesis Now the G80; also owned 2016 Hyundai Equus; I now have purchased the the genesis G90. over all I like the luxury and the reliability; The G90 is quality beyond compare; I had a Mercedes sclass; Its not a Mercedes, but for the money I would take The Genesis anytime the size of G90 is comparable to the sClass; I like this car!


World-class luxury car at an outstanding price

Took delivery of a Genesis G90 in March and am very, very pleased. The ride, handling, technology, materials, build quality, quietness and performance are excellent. The twin turbo V6 is an absolute gem - even more responsive than the very good V8s in other Genesis and Equus cars I?ve owned. In my opinion, the G90 is close to the equal of a similarly equipped S-Class that costs $45,000 more. The G90 does not equal the Mercedes in prestige or status and probably never will. But it's a fine, world-class luxury car at an outstanding price.
