Genesis G90

The flagship sedan from Hyundai's luxury brand, Genesis, is the 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. The spacious cabin is decked out in soft materials and trimmed in wood and chrome, but it comes up short on wow factor. We like that the controls are user friendly. The ride is cushy and cosseting, and the cabin is super-quiet. Handling is responsive though not sporty. As is typical for this oft-chauffeur-driven class, the backseat is really the place to be. Those in back even get controls in the rear armrest to manage audio and climate settings. A complete suite of advanced safety features is standard.

Genesis G90 2018
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.
