2023 Genesis G90 Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

The G90 sedan, Genesis' most opulent vehicle, has undergone a significant makeover that updates it for the 2023 model year. The G80 sedan and GV80 SUV served as inspiration for the G90's exterior design, but with a few distinctive additions that represent the G90's position at the top of the company's model classification. While the outgoing model had a V8 engine as an option over the base V6, the 2023 Genesis G90 will stick to just a twin-turbo V6 but those looking for more power can pay extra for an additional electric supercharger that increases the overall output. The G90's interior continues to be a tranquil space that offers a wealth of surprising features to treat passengers. For instance, an air purifier works to keep aromas from the outside from entering while an onboard fragrance diffuser can fill the area with a calming scent.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

All G90 versions come equipped with a Nappa leather interior, genuine wood trim, and massaging front seats. Standard power-operated doors act as a personal built-in valet. A new exterior design for the 2023 G90 emphasizes the car's length with a streamlined bonnet and slimmer double headlamp strips. The brand's Korean heritage is reflected in the gentle, cascading design language used inside. The end effect is an eye-catching and pleasantly distinctive luxury sedan that is prepared to contend with our top-ranked options from Europe. The rivals for the G90 have been the pioneers for this particular segment of luxury-oriented fullsize sedans and they are the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the BMW 7-Series, and the Audi A8L.


Features


The Genesis G90 will come in just two trims but there will be no shortage of features as Genesis is taking the premium tag a little too seriously considering the kind of rivals they are up against. The standard 3.5T variant will sell for $89,495 while the 3.5T e-SC will wear a price tag of $99,795. The dashboard will feature a long panel that comprises two 12.3-inch displays which play the role of an infotainment touchscreen and a digital gauge cluster. Front seats on the G90 come with heating, ventilation, and massaging functions by default. Unlike the previous generation, the G90 will now come only with an all-wheel drive configuration.

We Recommend

Someone reaching out in search of a premium vehicle towards such a price bracket would be expecting all the possible luxe and amenities in their car and hence, we would recommend going all out b picking the 3.5T e-SC as it comes with a lot more features, despite the base model already being packed to the brim.

Release Date

The new Genesis G90 started production later in the fall of 2022 and the car is expected to hit dealers in January 2023.

Engine and Performance

8.0/10

This year, the G90 has done away with its 5.0L V8 in favor of a twin-turbocharged V6 that comes in two power levels and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The E-supercharged variant combines an electric supercharger and a 48-volt hybrid system to increase the twin-turbo V6's output from 375 horsepower to 409 horsepower. The G90 is designed for cruising and feels comfortable accelerating to highway speeds to provide a polished ride. Put the car in Comfort mode, place yourself in the plush driver's seat, and let the vehicle take care of the driving. The V6 outputs enough torque to all four wheels, and the 8-speed automatic transmission hardly makes a grunt as it changes speeds. The powertrain is the epitome of keeping things smooth. The standard engine is capable of shooting this sleek sedan from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds but if that seems slow to you, pick the e-SC powertrain option and the time reduces to 4.9 seconds.

The Genesis G90 has a mild hybrid powertrain as an option while the rivals come standard with a tiny electric motor backing their internal-combustion engine. Mercedes manages to churn out maximum power in the segment, leading to an impressive acceleration of 4.9 seconds. Both Genesis and BMW produce the exact same figure of power but the Beemer takes the second spot in terms of acceleration by hitting 60 mph on the odo in just 5 seconds. On the bottom of the table are Genesis and Audi which took 5.3 seconds to complete the deed. The same order is followed even in terms of their pricing as the most expensive vehicle is the Mercedes and the most affordable are Audi and Genesis.

2023 Genesis G90 Ride and Handling

There is a lot of body roll and the steering does feel sluggish. To keep its inevitable swaying and tilting in check, the air suspension works extremely hard. The G90, however, has more positive aspects than negative ones. Rear-wheel steering, which turns in opposition to the front wheels at low speeds to enable a tighter turning radius and in coordination with the front wheels at highway speeds for improved stability, is standard on models with electrified powertrains. It all feels really smooth and silky. While it doesn't provide for an exciting drive through fast turns, Genesis has hit its mark in the competition with more reputable luxury brands.

2023 Genesis G90 Braking Performance

The brake pedal of the G90 feels squishy and isn’t the most pleasant one that the segment has to offer. However, braking does not feel compromised and regenerative braking is used to power the mild-hybrid version, which can cause unexpected stops in other sedans when you apply the brakes, but not in the G90. The front wheels carry 14.2-inch rotors while panning to the rear reveals 13.6-inch rotors. G90 also comes with a Stop/Start function which cuts the power while halting at a light and the vehicle starts back on the moment the driver lifts their foot off the brake pedal.

While none of these luxury sedans have been tested for their braking distance yet, they all come with vented discs on both ends, allowing optimal cooling of the brakes, which are an integral factor for promising braking performance. From the available information, the Genesis seems to be the heaviest vehicle, and considering how sharper the brakes on the rivals feel, it is most likely that the G90 would take the last spot. BMW hasn’t revealed the sizes of its brake rotors but the newly redesigned 7-Series happens to be the lightest vehicle here. As of now, the Audi has the largest set of brakes which should help it stop within a commendable distance.

Fuel Economy

7.5/10

The G90 equipped with the 375-hp twin-turbo V6 will be the most economical model of the two available options. The model has an estimated 18 city mpg and 26 highway mpg. Choosing the 409-hp powertrain reduces those figures to 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Although these aren’t figures to boast about, we don’t think that it would matter much to someone spending close to $90K for a car and would lean more towards what is offered in terms of equipment and performance.

It is clearly evident that Genesis takes a massive slap from its rivals in terms of fuel economy as the EPA ratings of the G90 fall behind in comparison. To make things worse for the Korean manufacturer, the G90 carries the smallest gas tank, cutting down on the maximum range. The closest rival to the Genesis is the Audi but it offers over 70 extra miles in combined driving conditions. Both BMW and Mercedes offer over 100 miles of extra combined range than the Genesis. The table topper happens to be the BMW with a total of 526 miles of range and carries EPA ratings which make it look like a daily drivable family vehicle. The largest gas tank is equipped on the Mercedes-Benz and is the second-best option to pick if you're looking for an efficient option.

Interior

9.0/10

The "less is more" design philosophy and a plethora of soft-touch surfaces warmly welcome you inside. The 18-way driver's seat and the 16-way passenger's seat are covered in ultra-soft, quilted Nappa leather, and there is no driver discomfort even after extended driving. The gear selection dial is also well-known and, intriguingly, vibrates when shifted into reverse to prevent unintentionally selecting the wrong gear. The "Mood Creator" feature is new for 2023 and it integrates the sound, ambient lighting, fragrance system, and electric curtains to create a relaxing environment, which can all be tailored for a high level of customization. It comes in four feelings: Vitality, Delight, Care, and Comfort. All electronically aided doors have additional weight and heft, and the G90 completely fits the bill. By pressing a button on the armrest, you can automatically open the door a few inches, and then you may push it open the remaining distance. Simply glide your finger across the square on the door handle to close the door, and it will do so on its own. The G90 excels for passengers in the back, particularly in the right-side rear seat. The rear passenger receives first-class treatment when the "Rest" button on the door panel is pressed. The seat reclines, a footrest appears, and the front passenger seat moves forward and folds almost in half. Back passengers receive their dedicated sunroof in addition to the five automatic sun shades including the ones on the rear windows.

All these sedans don’t lack in terms of passenger space and they manage to keep everyone very comfortable despite the prolonged seating. The Genesis offers slightly better front-row legroom than its rivals but that isn’t the case when you move to the rear. The G90 offers the shortest rear legroom but it isn’t cramped in any way. The largest passenger space overall is offered by Audi. Moving to the cargo space, the BMW tops the segment with a massive 19.1 cu-ft of trunk storage area.

Some standout interior features on the 2023 Genesis G90 include

  • Power adjustable driver and passenger seats
  • Nappa leather upholstery
  • Front and rear seat massager
  • Heated and ventilated seats
  • Power closing doors
  • 3-zone automatic climate control.

How intuitive is the 2023 Genesis G90 infotainment system?

The 12.3-inch infotainment system is one of the best on the market and is configurable for touch or may be operated by a dial on the center console. Another 12.3-inch digital dashboard follows a pure minimalist design and is very easy to read. Sadly, a wire is required for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is a strange exclusion in the era of wireless connectivity. The Bang & Olufsen stereo system is standard on both versions, but the E-supercharged has an improved version with 23 speakers and a setting that mimics concert hall acoustics. Additionally included are a wireless smartphone charging station and a head-up display. Those picking the higher trim will get an additional wireless charger for the rear row passengers integrated into the armrest that can be accessed by folding it down from the rear middle seat. The armrest will also feature an 8.0-inch touchscreen for rear media and temperature control along with seat adjustability.

Some of the standout infotainment features on the 2023 Genesis G90 are

  • 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen
  • 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Dual wireless device charger
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • 15 or 23-speaker audio system by Bang & Olufsen
  • Navigation system

Exterior

8.5/10

The G-Matrix grille dominates the front end and is noticeable at first glance. The G90 is identifiable, to put it mildly, though not as controversial as BMW's extremely vertical kidney beans. In front of it is a clamshell hood that, when open, neatens up sloppy design lines, keeps the front end low, and looks good overall. For a fluid design, the two-line headlamps continue through the fenders and reappear at the tail. The headlamps are composed of several tiny squares and are extremely thin. Surprisingly, the side view reveals a balanced appearance and feel thanks to short frontal overhangs and a big back overhang. The G90 comes standard with 20-inch alloy wheels while the higher version wears 21-inch wheels that look way too massive compared to the overall proportion. The wraparound tail lights' large angles, gentle curves, and long lines across the trunk lid give them a posh, seamless appearance. One of the most attractive luxury sedans on the market is finished off with twin tailpipes.

From the very first glance, the Mercedes looks like a limousine against the rest of the sedans. This is due to the Mercs' massive proportion in terms of its length, width and height. The smallest vehicle in comparison is the Genesis but this helps to keep the handling more planted and minimize the body roll. Both BMW and Audi share very similar exterior dimensions but BMW sure will pull more eyes towards it, not necessarily for its road presence but for its new controversial design. If we were to pick the best-looking sedan of them all, Genesis clearly would take our vote as it's very elegant and balanced.

Some of the standout exterior features include

  • Dual strip LED headlights
  • 20 or 21-inch alloy wheels
  • G-Matrix grille
  • Dual exhaust tips
  • LED tail lights
  • Dual pane sunroof

Safety

8.5/10

Every version includes a variety of driver-assistance features as standard equipment, such as an automatic high beam and an adaptive cruise control system with lane-centering. Like any other premium sedan, the G90 hasn’t been crash tested and we doubt if it will undergo tests by NHTSA or IIHS. However, it would be hard to doubt the safety that the Genesis provides after going through the long list of safety features that come along and it is also evident that the Korean manufacturer didn’t take things lightly.

Some of the standout safety features available with the 2023 Genesis G90 are

  • Lane following assist
  • Smart cruise control with stop & go
  • Surround view monitor
  • Rear cross-traffic assist
  • Blind spot monitor
  • Forward collision avoidance

Competition

8.5/10

2023 Genesis G90 vs 2023 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The most-priced luxury sedan in 2023 is without a doubt the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It is the sole option to cost more than $100,000 for the base model. Simply put, this is a result of the prestige that the "Mercedes-Benz" brand possesses. The G90 appears to be far more affordable than the S-Class at this pricing bracket. It would be sensible to choose the more practical and less expensive option over the more expensive S-Class.

2023 Genesis G90 vs 2023 BMW 7-Series

One of the industrial powerhouses is BMW, and the 7 Series, the company's flagship model, is one of the most coveted luxury cars on the market. The 7 Series is the segment's most fuel-efficient vehicle. Even while it is just as well-equipped as the G90, it cannot compare to the luxurious cabin that Genesis has curated. The G90 leads in a crucial area where the cost is concerned. The price difference between the 7 Series and the G90 may be the deciding factor for many purchasers. However, BMW offers family car-worthy fuel efficiency and also carries a better brand value.

2023 Genesis G90 vs 2023 Audi A8L

The Audi A8L despite being a German offering manages to keep the price slightly under what the Genesis is offered for. In terms of performance, there isn’t much of a difference and both these vehicles stay neck and neck in various aspects. Audi has a slight edge in terms of fuel economy while the Genesis feels more opulent and rich on the inside. This comes down to whether you want a car that carries a lot more brand value or if you want a lot more for what you pay.

Final Verdict


Although it doesn't sell in great numbers, the G90 is an essential part of Genesis' lineup. By removing many barriers, Genesis has made it easy for buyers to choose from an appealing, well-equipped, extravagant, and opulent selection. Regardless of where you sit, the 2023 Genesis G90 aims to delight with a calm, smooth, and powerful driving experience. While the German manufacturers are cruising along, Genesis is catching up and becoming more and more visible in their rearview mirrors. Genesis offers so many features and tech that it makes the purchase feel almost like a steal and hence, we’d recommend this luxury sedan to everyone looking to step out of the regular German offerings.
