2023 Genesis G90 3.5T: Balanced and Enlightened Luxury

Experienced by Leon Brittain

Welcome to the 2023 Genesis G90 3.5T E Supercharger, which represents balanced and enlightened luxury by way of South Korea. Feeling like an automotive buddha in a state of nirvana, I became immersed in the touring sedan’s comforting and therapeutic rear cabin. It begins with profound massaging seats akin to a first-class international flight. All that’s missing is a customized culinary service.

I always revel in the luxury automaker’s unique culture while relishing the technology and inspiration emanating from the innovative vehicle. If you have a driver on hand, the 14-way right and 12-way left rear power seats can quickly put you to sleep on long drives since they recline and hug like love chairs. In the front cabin, Nappa Leather power driver and passenger seats (heated and ventilated) with massaging mechanisms are just as cozy and meditative. They also receive power bolsters to keep you from sliding around in aggressive turns.

Moreover, 3-zone climate control will provide either warmth or cooling, and a Mood Curator will set the tone for your emotional state of mind. Specifically, Mood Curator commingles ambient lighting, the sound system, the fragrance system, massaging seats, and electric curtains to create an ambient environment. The front passenger chair can also be controlled from the rear for additional legroom. Select Chill Jazz from the 12.3″ HD multimedia screen operated by the circular controller on the center console to set the ambiance from the immaculately tuned Bang & Olufsen 3D premium audio. The rear passengers can also manipulate music choices, temperature, and seating positions with their controls.

Aesthetically, the G90’s confident presence is emboldened by the large signature crescent grille, an elongated hood, easy-close power doors, a panoramic sunroof, wide flushed asymmetrical exhaust tips, 21″ alloy rims wrapped in Michelin Primacy Tour all-season tires, and bronze Genesis brake calipers. Genesis offers a power hands-free smart trunk with auto open and power-folding mirrors with Genesis logo puddle lamps for convenience.

Under the hood is a strategically packaged 3.5-liter V6 T-GDI with a 48V e-Supercharger, helping the AWD sedan achieve 24 highway miles per gallon. Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, total horsepower equals 409 with 405 lb.-ft. of torque. The G90 also features rear-wheel steering and a multi-chamber air suspension. Acceleration is terrific and pushes the G90 admirably as an executive sedan should, even when packed with people and luggage. Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go can be utilized when highway traffic hits.

The G90 features the brand’s Highway Driving Assist suite of safety and driver assistance features. The company brings Digital Key 2 to the G90 lineup for the first time so owners can access the vehicle with their smartphones. Genesis will include complimentary scheduled maintenance and valet service for three years or 36,000 miles. A dealer representative will come to your home to pick up your G90 and drop off a loaner. Also complimentary for three years is Map Care. Genesis additionally provides a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain and a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty.

For cross-shopping ideas, compare the G90 to the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Lexus LS, Audi A8, and the Porsche Panamera. Currently in Genesis dealerships, the 2023 G90 has a starting MSRP of $88,400. The vehicle represents virtuous aspirations for individuals who identify with social uniqueness. Keep tuning in people as the brand continues to grow and inspire.
