Just how serious is Hyundai at tackling the luxury market? Very. Not only have the Koreans created an entire Genesis sub-brand, they also built a world-class luxury sedan with the G90. Reconciling upscale luxury with the Hyundai brand's budget-minded origin is a tough sell to consumers. The solution is a separate brand, a-la Toyota's Lexus division.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Various modes of operation enable the car to become a week end racer or a daily luxury cruiser. The Drive Mode console button is amazing."

Rich R., NJ (2017 Genesis G90)

"Great power to accelerate on short mountain passing stretches. Very good cornering with AWD and suspension. 3.3L Twin Turbo with max torque kicking in at 1300 RPM is great. Fully loaded and speed at 120-125 km/hr through prairies of Canada averaged 8.6 L/100km fuel consumption - very pleased with that."

Walter B., BC (2017 Genesis G90)

"I own the V-8 which is a very smooth engine with more power than I could ever use. The ride and handling are excellent. Just completed a 1800 mile trip that was easy for a 72 year old man because of the speed control and lane control feature making the G-90 almost a driverless car. This eliminated driver fatigue."

Larry T., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Acceleration and handling are great, it is a joy to drive."

Scott C., UT (2017 Genesis G90)

"My genesis drives quietly, comfortably, and when needed provides me superior acceleration. All this is coupled with excellent driving experience."

Steph F., NC (2017 Genesis G90)

"Pretty well, feels a bit ponderous in turns"

Casey C., WA (2017 Genesis G90)

"The twin turbo V6 has instant response more than a V8 and it far exceeds your expectations. The car rides smooth, quiet, and is agile enough for almost all but extreme sport driving."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Genesis G90)

"Everything about this car is top notch. Having had three Lexus LS sedans previously, none could come close to the G90 in all around satisfaction."

Patricia R., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Very smooth, quiet and responsive."

Carol L., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"420 horsepower with 383 pounds of torque should be enough for anyone to be totally satisfied."

Rich R., NJ (2017 Genesis G90)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

Fred P., TX (2017 Genesis G90)

"there are no side window wind shields available from any source. I smoke and like to leave my window open slightly so the smoke goes out without rain coming in. Impossible!!"

Michael S., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Having owned two BMW 750's, our G90 gives more options at nearly half the cost. The quality is excellent."

Carol L., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Like riding on a cloud. Truly the best ope all the cars I've had"

Allen G., IL (2017 Genesis G90)

"An awesome car that is so quiet and comfortable"

"Clearly a Luxury vehicle and at a price that beats the other luxury vehicles by tens of thousands of dollars."

Anonymous, IA (2017 Genesis G90)

"There are design flaws which no one would address. Cars built for the China market are not the same as should be designed for theNorth Americanmarket Defrost System leaves much to be desired Laminated glass needs much to be desired Mud protectors were not designed into the overall design and must be an add on option"

Anonymous, OH (2017 Genesis G90)

"G90 has many more features than luxury cars that cost 20 to 30K more."

Fred P., TX (2017 Genesis G90)

"My Genesis provides abundance safety features, abundant luxury features, and a wonderful driving experience."

Steph F., NC (2017 Genesis G90)

"Exceptional value on purchase. It compares favourably to vehicles that are $35,000. more expensive. Great car in all ways."

James L., ON (2017 Genesis G90)

"Fantastic car for the price. 95% of the content of the Germans at 75% of the price."

Anonymous, MO (2017 Genesis G90)

"When you compare quality, options and cost, the G90 is much better than the BMW 750, the Mercedes S550, the Audi A8 and the large Lexus."

Carol L., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Best value I ever received for a new car. Was not forced to buy options I did not want to get others I wanted."

Gail L., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Just about any option you could want is standard on this car - would cost thousands more with other brands."

Anonymous, NC (2017 Genesis G90)

"Best value for money by far when comparing similarly equipped Lexis, BMW and Mercedes. I set out to buy a Mercedes or BMW, but after looking at the Genesis with a test drive it was far superior and about $20k less, I am in the financial position to buys any car, but would purchase a Genesis again -- Best Car I have ever owned."

Larry T., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Price includes all available options, no pricey addons."

Anonymous, AZ (2017 Genesis G90)

"Outstanding value fir luxury car"

Anonymous, NJ (2017 Genesis G90)

"Finally a level that competes with the best from Germany and Japan for $20k - $60k less than the same equipped competitor."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Genesis G90)

Carol L., FL (2017 Genesis G90)

"A great value for a luxury car. All features, options and services included."

Russell R., OK (2017 Genesis G90)

"Incredible value. Virtually no issues in 6 years of ownership. I havw nevee had a more reliable car for such a price."

Anonymous, TX (2017 Genesis G90)

"I priced , researched and drove other luxury cars. The G90 was as good as the others at an unbelievable lower price. After driving it for 6 months, I'm still astonished at the value"

Allen G., IL (2017 Genesis G90)

"Great value but may depreciate too quickly. I am a very experienced car person and realize the exceptional value. Unfortunately the average consumer concentrates more on brands when buying a luxury vehicle."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
