Hyundai's luxury flagship sedan has been renamed the Genesis G90, which features a 5.0-liter V8 or a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6, the better choice of the two.
Both are mated to a smooth eight-speed automatic and are available with either rear- or all-wheel drive, addressing a shortcoming of the rear-drive-only Equus predecessor.
The spacious cabin is bathed in soft-touch materials and decked out with wood and chrome trim, but it comes up short on wow factor.
The ride is cushy and cosseting; the cabin is super-quiet.
Handling is responsive, although not sporty.
As is typical for this oft-chauffeur-driven class, the backseat is really the place to be.
It has massaging seats, and controls in the rear armrest manage audio and climate settings.
A complete suite of advanced safety features is standard.
