We'd Be Willing To Pay More For The New Genesis G90 For These Reasons

Review

A little more. Not much.

If you don’t already know by now, Genesis is Hyundai’s new luxury sub-brand, and it has just two models at the moment: the G80 and G90. We’ve already reviewed the G80, formerly known as the Hyundai Genesis, and today we got our hands on the all-new 2017 G90, formerly known as the Hyundai Equus. Like the G80, the G90 is simply not a rebadged version of its predecessor, but rather a new model with its own unique design inside and out.

Our sampler came powered by the standard 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 with 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, with power going to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic. What’s optional is all-wheel drive and a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 with 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of twist.

To be honest, we’d stick with the base engine, and not only because it costs less. It’s a fine engine and it does its job admirably. Remember, the G90 is not by any means a sport sedan, but rather a large sedan that competes with the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Speaking of which, the G90 costs a lot less than those two, basing at just $68,100. A new 7 Series costs at least $83k. But there are two things we wished Genesis would’ve given the G90 to make it more premium: fancier sheet metal and higher quality window and mirror function buttons. We’d be willing to pay a bit more for both.
