Coming as a new flagship product of the Korean company, the 2020 Genesis G90 tries to attract attention with a distinctive shape that has proven to be easily likeable.
The vehicle has the impression of a luxury model that is far more costly than its actual price. The massive front grille looks especially charming and would probably remind you of Superman. Even better, it’s in harmony with those new LED headlights. But not less dramatic is the rear of the car thanks to its full-width taillights that steal some Lincoln charisma.
Together, those ingredients create a luxury car with a uniqueness that amazes just about any eye that sees it. On the road, it slightly obscures its identity due to its mixed Bentley-Lincoln vibe that may deceive those who don’t know it well. But the point is, the G90 will impress anyone at first sight, at least that’s what The Straight Pipes thinks when reviewing the car.
Under the skin, the G90 is powered by a 5.0-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine churning out 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard. A cheaper variant will be offered to US buyers, packing a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 engine generating 365 horsepower. The same model will also arrive in Canada, but only as a special order.
Updates received by the interior include a new 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen display and many physical buttons. According to Genesis, the NVH levels in this model have been improved thanks to the new sound-absorbing materials added across the cabin and the car’s sub-structure. As of this writing, Genesis hasn’t yet announced US pricing for the G90, although we think it won’t be much different from its predecessor, which costs from $69,350.
