    Expert Rating

    3.6 (Good)
    MPG
    16 City / 24 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2018 Genesis G90 OVERVIEW

    Choosing a flagship for its affordability may seem like tuxedo shopping at Walmart, but the fact that the 2018 Genesis G90 offers nearly all of the luxury features and technology found in the products of established flagship makers at their used car prices makes the Genesis a respectable choice. Its styling is an acquired taste, and its interior is filled with more buttons than a shirt factory, but unless either fact is a deal breaker, buyers looking for value over brand cachet would do well to consider this Korean upstart.

    What's New for 2018

    LED headlights that turn around bends are now standard on base G90's, the 5.0 Ultimate model gains a standard rear seat entertainment system with dual seatback-mounted 10.3-inch monitors, and both trims now include standard glovebox-mounted CD/DVD players.

    Choosing Your Genesis G90

    Put simply, G90s come with either a six- or eight-cylinder engine and in rear- or all-wheel drive forms. Apart from that, the only decisions a buyer need make are which of its seven exterior paints they’d like matched to one of its pair of interior color schemes.

    The base model – the $69,325 (including $975 destination) 3.3T Premium – is named for its 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. For $3,500 more one can move up to the $72,825 5.0 Ultimate RWD and its 5.0-liter V8 with 420 hp and 383 lb-ft. All-wheel-drive is a $2,500 option with either engine. EPA ratings on the two very different engines are remarkably similar, at 17 mpg city, 24 highway, and 20 combined for the V6 (regardless of drivetrain), with the V8 rated at 16/24/19 (RWD) and 15/23/18 (AWD).

    All G90s feature the same eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, and Intelligent Drive Mode, which allows drivers to choose transmission, throttle, steering, and suspension control setting combinations, either preset (Eco and Sport), adaptive (Smart), or custom (Individual).

    There are two available trims:

    3.3T Premium

    What the G90 lacks in choice it more than makes up for in its myriad standard features. The very embodiment of the “nothing base about this base model” ethos, the depth and breadth of the features list on the 3.3T Premium nearly beggars belief.

    Its comprehensive suite of handling and safety systems includes an adaptive suspension with electronic damping control, driver attention alert, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection, front and rear parking sensors, and a surround-view camera.

    Exterior features include full LED automatic headlights with running lights and dynamic bending function, LED turn signal indicators and automatic, power-folding, heated, and auto-dimming side mirrors, 19-inch chrome wheels, and dual exhaust outlets.

    The base G90's interior is even more crowded with luxury features, including Nappa leather upholstery, a microfiber suede headliner, 22-way power driver’s seat and 16-way power front passenger seat with memory function, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel with power tilt-and-telescoping, leather-wrapped dash, wood trim, a seven-inch LCD display in the instrument cluster, full-color heads-up display, interior ambient lighting with seven colors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, three-zone automatic temperature control, and rain-sensing wipers with auto-defogging windshield.

    The infotainment system is impressive as well, with a 12.3-inch display with navigation system, a Lexicon 17-speaker surround audio system, Genesis Connected Services (like parent company Hyundai's BlueLink telematics suite), Qi wireless device charging, front and rear USB ports, auxiliary inputs, and Bluetooth hands-free phone system.

    Rounding it all out is a grab-bag of additional premium features, including power door closure, hands-free, power-operated trunk lid with auto open, proximity key with push-button start, acoustic laminated front, side and rear windows, a sunroof, and power rear and rear side window sunshades.

    5.0 Ultimate

    In addition to its 5.0-liter DOHC V8 engine, the $3,500 bump required to reach 5.0 Ultimate status adds a rear seat entertainment system with dual 10.3-inch seatback-mounted touchscreens, a 14-way power right rear seat and 12-way power left rear seat – both with ventilation, power head restraints with manual tilt, and a memory function – and rear seat illuminated vanity mirrors.

    CarsDirect Tip

    As strange as it sounds, the row in which one plans to sit – or seat others – best dictates which G90 model is the best fit. Though it offers slightly better performance, the real reason to choose the 5.0 Ultimate is its enhanced rear seat comfort, convenience, and entertainment equipment. If you won't be riding in the back (or don't much care for those who are), save the $3,500 with the 3.3T and enjoy its additional fuel economy.
