2023 Genesis G90, All you want to know about a Great Car
2023 GENESIS G90: PREVIEW, PRICING, RELEASE DATE
We get excited when ordinary becomes extraordinary, and that’s exactly what you’ll find with the 2023 Genesis G90. The Korean automaker’s flagship sedan receives a complete makeover, and the new generation takes the existing G90 to a whole new level. Make no mistake, today’s G90 is already a wonderful car; it impressed us so much, it won a comparison against the BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS, and Lincoln Continental.
The 2023 Genesis G90 is a step in the right direction, building on the outgoing car while adding more luxury features and technology that focus on passengers’ emotional state as well as on ergonomics. We spent a couple of hours with the 2023 Genesis G90 at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, home of golf’s Genesis Invitational, and although we didn’t drive the car (we will around the middle of the year), the attention to detail inside the cabin and aimed toward passengers blew us away.
How Are You Doing?
When someone asks you that question, chances are your response isn’t entirely honest or complete. The 2023 Genesis G90 tries to change this with a feature focused on your mood. Depending on your emotions, Mood Curator adjusts the ambient lighting and sound system while the window shades open or close automatically, and a fragrance sprays through the air vents to relax you. The massaging seats are also enabled to enhance the experience. There are four different mood modes, and you may customize each of them.
If that’s not impressive enough, perhaps the reclining rear seats with footrests are. The seats recline a fair amount, though not business-class flat. With the front passenger seat and seat back in their forward-most positions, the Genesis G90’s reclined rear seat can accommodate adults who are up to around 5-foot-9. This scribe stands just taller than 6 feet, and my feet touched the front seat back during full recline.
Your mood might also be enhanced by the 23-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, which positions speakers in key areas of the 2023 Genesis G90’s cabin. Although the car is equipped with a ton of sound-deadening material, the system minimizes exterior noise by adjusting the in-car noise depending on the speed at which the vehicle travels.
Indeed, the attention to detail is so extensive, the blind-spot monitor “beep” sounds its alarm only through the driver’s headrest speakers without distracting the rest of the occupants. We didn’t get to test this feature, but we were massively impressed by how much Genesis designers and engineers focused their attention on everyone traveling in the vehicle.
Screens Without The Overload
Screens have become a big feature in luxury cars. Porsche, Mercedes, and even Jeep have now placed displays running from one corner of the dash to the other. Genesis, however, opted to take a different route while keeping a clean cabin design. .The digital instrument cluster is flanked by a wing-like design that separates it from the infotainment display, making the cabin feel premium but without the screen overload. Buttons for the infotainment are placed under the slim air vents, and the driver or front passenger can operate the screen via touch or a rotary knob located next to the rotary shifter on the center console.
ear passengers can also control the sound system, temperature, and other features via a screen located in the rear center console. The 8.0-inch touch display found in the center armrest can also be used to adjust seat position, massage settings, curtains, and ambient lighting.
Another fun feature found in the G90 sees all four doors close with the push of a button located on the center console or on the door panel.
New Materials, Great Quality
While the 2023 Genesis G90 will be available with different interior options, the one we had access to at the Riviera Country Club featured crushed carbon-fiber trim with metal inlays, which looks contemporary and elegant. It’s something we haven’t seen before, and we applaud Genesis for trying something new and coming up with fresh ideas. The door panels’ metal inlays carried the same diamond pattern as the grille.
Of course, there will be various trims available if the crushed carbon-fiber isn’t your thing. The manufacturer will offer wood and other materials when the 2023 Genesis G90 arrives in U.S. dealers by the middle of 2022.

2023 Genesis G90 Review
What is the Genesis G90?
Just over a decade ago, Hyundai launched the Equus — a large sedan that aimed to beat serious metal like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8 at their own game. It didn’t quite succeed, but a precedent was set. The South Korean automaker was coming for the German triumvirate.
The 2023 Genesis G90 you see here is the culmination of learnings developed since that first Equus and its successor, the 2017-2022 G90. This second-generation G90 is fully overhauled inside and out, sporting a redesigned exterior and interior that leans into Genesis’ bold design language. We recently had a chance to check it for ourselves, and we left impressed. If the G90 feels as good on the road as it looks in person, we may see an upset in the large luxury sedan segment when it launches later this year.
What’s under the G90’s hood?
Genesis confirms that its turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine will power the Korean G90, and we expect it to be standard stateside as well — likely hooked to an eight-speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive. We wouldn’t be surprised if electrification plays a part of the G90’s story since Genesis is already working on the fully electric Electrified GV70 and Electrified G80 models.
How’s the G90’s interior?
Inside and out, the 2023 Genesis G90 is a design tour de force. Blending modern forms with classic detailing, the G90 leads with distinction rather than following with mimicry. The cabin is trimmed in leather, wood, glass and aluminum, and it features front and rear seats with heating, ventilation and massage. Sound-deadening materials and active noise cancellation technology help ensure a quiet ride. The cabin’s overall look isn’t too dissimilar from that of GV80, but it’s clear the G90’s materials and build quality are a notch above.
How’s the G90’s tech?
Digital instrumentation and a widescreen infotainment display dominate the upper half of the dashboard, but Genesis wisely retains a handful of physical controls for commonly accessed functions. The new Mood Curator suite tailors multiple features — including air fragrances, ambient cabin lighting, and the 23-speaker Bang & Olufsen high-end audio system — to create different moods for the cabin. The Korean model’s air suspension, rear-seat control panel and remote parking using the key fob are features that should all make the trip across the Pacific.
