2019 Genesis G90 review: Our expert's take

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.

Incredible ride, comfort and style

Comfort was the prime element for my wife due to prior orthopedic surgeries and had become uncomfortable even in our Acuras. We have had 3 long road trips in this G90 and you do not get beat up, stiff, and tired, even after long 10 hour days on the road. LOVE this car, well appointed, organized and conveniences, some of which I am just discovering after many months.

Genesis G-90

Moved up from the G-80. Really enjoy the very comfortable ride and the excellent gas mileage. Took a while to figure out all of the bells and whistles that that the G-90 a valve luxury vehicle.

HANDS DOWN THE BEST

This is my first Genesis and I am pleased 100 percent. The car is loaded with just about everything that you could possibly want in a car and turns heads everywhere you go. Best value in its class and rides like a smooth sail. I own a Hyundai sonata and I love it too but I think the mold was broken when they made the G90, the "granddaddy" of the Hyundai family. I think I've found my lifetime car! In love for sure
