Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Genesis G90?

Genesis is Hyundai's young stand-alone luxury division, and the five-seat 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 nearly the same size and is designed for the same customer. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive, the G90 gets its power from a standard 365-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 or an optional 420-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

What's New on the 2019 Genesis G90?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2019 Genesis G90 Are Most Important?

The G90 has an extensive list of standard features like adaptive LED headlights, a hands-free power-opening trunk lid, a 22-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a 16-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, power-cinching doors and power rear sunshades. You also don't have to spend any extra for active safety features like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist and a driver drowsiness monitor.

There's a standard 12.3-inch screen for the multimedia and navigation systems, wireless device charging, a head-up display and a Lexicon premium stereo. The top-level 5.0 Ultimate adds power-adjustable rear seats with memory and a rear-seat entertainment system, among other features.

Should I Buy the 2019 Genesis G90?

The full-size luxury sedan class has been dominated by European automakers, but the G90 looks to make inroads by mostly matching them on a feature and driving experience basis for considerably less money. There's no question the Genesis badge doesn't have the prestige of Mercedes-Benz's or BMW's and may not for some time, but if the badge on the hood matters less than what's on the inside, the G90 is a worthy alternative to established competitors.

great ride

by Happy Mercedes owner from woodway wa on October 12, 2019

The car is amazing. I was just disappointed it didn't come with mats. I thought for the price that Elliot Bay would have purchased mats before it put it up for sale. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
