CG Says: After last year’s major refresh, there are few changes for the 2021 Genesis G90. Just as Acura is the luxury division of Honda and Lexus the upscale brand of Toyota, so Genesis is an upmarket Hyundai product. Genesis G90 was a new design that replaced the Hyundai Equus in 2017 and is the flagship of the Genesis brand. The G90 is a premium large car with two powertrain choices: a twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 or a 5.0-liter V8. Both mate to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel or all-wheel drive are available with either engine. Available safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and bicycle detection, blind-spot alert, lane-keep assist, driver-attention alert, rear cross-traffic alert, Highway Driving Assist, lane-following assist, safe exit assist, and 360-degree multi-view monitor. The G90 is well equipped with standard heated/ventilated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate controls, head-up instrument display, rear sunshades, hands-free trunk opener, power door closure, steering-linked LED headlights on all models. The topline 5.0 model adds power-adjustable, heated/ventilated rear seats and rear-seat entertainment system with dual screens. G90 offers the size and luxury of Lexus LS and high-end German rivals at a lower price.
