The 2022 Genesis G90 arrives for its third model year on sale with minimal updates. The sedan’s navigation system gets over-the-air map updates, while new 19-inch wheel designs have been added.
While the G90 lacks the prestige of its European rivals, it makes up for it with a can’t-miss design, a plush ride, tons of standard features, and lavish accommodations. Not to mention, the G90 is a serious value option in a class that’s not known for value.
Choosing Your Genesis G90
Genesis offers the G90 in two trims: 3.3T and 5.0. Pricing starts at $74,995 for the 3.3T trim and goes up to $78,745 for the 5.0.
The trim’s names portray what kind of engine they come with. The 3.3T is powered by a turbocharged V6 engine, while the 5.0 comes with a V8.
Rear-wheel drive is standard for both engines with all-wheel drive being available for $2,500. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The G90 is classified as a large sedan and offers seating for up to five. Four adults are treated to all-day comfort in the G90’s interior.
On the cargo front, the G90 offers up to 15.7 cubic feet of cargo space in its trunk. That figure is average for the segment.
Genesis packs the G90 with every conceivable safety feature as standard. Forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, lane tracing assist, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view parking camera, parking sensors, a head-up display, safety exit assist, and a driver attention monitor are standard. Genesis also includes its highway driving assist system with the G90.
Genesis fits the G90 with a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen and a seven-inch digital instrument cluster. Additional standard features include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a 17-speaker Lexicon audio system, navigation, Bluetooth, a wireless smartphone charger, satellite radio, and an HD radio.
The 5.0 adds a rear-seat entertainment system with a 10.3-inch display.
Even the base G90 3.3T comes generously equipped. Standard features include Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a sunroof, tri-zone automatic climate control, power soft-closing doors, and power rear-window sunshades. Adaptive suspension, a hands-free power trunk lid, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a heated steering wheel, remote start, keyless entry, a universal garage door opener, and ambient interior lighting are also standard.
The 3.3T trim doesn’t have any optional packages or features. Every paint scheme costs an additional $500.
In addition to the V8 engine, the 5.0 trim brings better accommodations for passengers in the back. Heated and ventilated outboard seats, a 14-way power passenger-side rear seat, a 12-way driver-side rear seat, and a rear entertainment system are standard.
Large luxury sedans like the 2022 Genesis G90 are all about pampering passengers. While the turbocharged V6 engine in the 3.3T offers plenty of grunt and comes well equipped, the 5.0 raises the bar. Plus, the V8 engine is a better fit. With the G90 being an absolute bargain, we recommend going for the most expensive 5.0 trim.
