The 2023 Genesis G90 deserves a serious look for anyone in the market for a big, comfy, high-tech luxury car. When you think of a big flagship luxury sedan, your mind probably goes to the established leaders in their class like the illustrious Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series.

The 2023 Genesis G90, like the rest of the Genesis lineup, gives its more expensive German rivals a run for their money at a significant discount. The new Genesis G90 is absolutely packed with features, from automatic doors to a foot massager to a germ-killing UV light.

A facelift for the 2023 Genesis G90 represents the Genesis brand’s design language of “Athletic Elegance.” Genesis revised the front and rear light signatures and gave the body sharper lines, plus some striking new wheel designs.

We expect the same twin-turbo V6 to remain as the base engine, but it’s uncertain whether the naturally aspirated V8 will continue. Since there’s an electric 2023 Genesis G80, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the G90 get electrified.

ENGINE AND IMPLEMENTATION

The standard engine will be a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine that’s found in other Genesis models. An eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive arrangements are also expected to be standard.

The engine makes a stout 375 horsepower and should deliver brisk acceleration. A 420-hp powertrain will also be offered and uses a 48-volt hybrid system and an electric supercharger to boost the output from the twin-turbo V-6.

An air suspension will be available and Genesis has said the car will feature a “Chauffeur” driving mode which we assume will create an extra-smooth experience for passengers.

An electric variant—likely to use the name Electrified G90—is also expected, but Genesis has not yet released any info about that car. When we get a chance to test-drive the new 2023 Genesis G90, we’ll update this story with test results and driving impressions.

ENERGY AND REAL-WORLD MPG

The most efficient G90 will be the one with the 375-hp twin-turbo V-6. That model is rated for 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Going with the more powerful 420-hp powertrain drops those numbers to 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

When we get a chance, we’ll put the new G90 to the test on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy test route and update this story with the results. For more information about the 2023 Genesis G90’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

INTERIOR, CONVENIENCE, AND BOOTH

Like the exterior, the G90’s cabin gets an overhaul for 2023 too, with a fresh design and posh materials that will help it go head-to-head with its rivals.

Passenger space is likely to be generous in both the front and the back seats and Genesis has incorporated several features that intend to take the luxury experience up a notch.

An on-board fragrance diffuser, for example, and an anti-microbial sanitation system that cleans both the air and items that are brought into the car such as smartphones. Of course, features such as massaging seats and a premium stereo system will also be included.
