Steve Says The G90 ‘Is One Of The Best Luxury Sedans I’ve Ever Driven’

Behind the wheel of the 2017 G90

When Hyundai introduced cars such as the Genesis and Equus, scuttlebutt spread about the Korean automaker starting their own luxury division. Well that day has finally come. With a change in name the artist formerly known as the Equus becomes the all-new G90 as the Genesis brand’s inaugural flagship.

Not every Hyundai dealership sells Genesis and they don’t have their own standalone stores just yet, but Genesis showrooms do have their own dedicated floor space and an ownership experience that is quite different from that of the person, say, buying an Accent. For instance, rather than driving to a dealership for service, owners can choose to have their vehicle picked up and a complimentary Genesis loaner car will be dropped off. There’s costless maintenance for the first 3 years or 36,000 miles and Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty surprisingly carries over here. But none of this matters if the car isn’t good. Fortunately for Genesis, the G90 isn’t just good, it’s great. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the best luxury sedans I’ve ever driven. Some are pooh-poohing the G90 as a mere Equus carryover but this effort is far more substantial. The details have been sweated to such a degree that you will not find a single compromise in any of the material or parts choices. From the thick carpeted floor mats to the silky suede headliner and all touchpoints in between, this is true luxury and not some cheap facsimile. My tester is backed by a potent 5.0-liter V8 and the brilliance that is the Adaptive Control Suspension for a remarkable blend of bodacious power and unbeatable composure. You will not find a more sumptuous and undisturbed ride quality at any price.


The G90 takes the Equus to the next level of plushness and sophistication. I’m really impressed with the phenomenally forgiving ride quality…exactly how I want a big luxury car to drive. Lots of power, buttery smooth in everything it does; the G90 is a dream cruiser from every seat in the house.
