The top-of-the-line model from Genesis is the full-sized G90 sedan that incidentally happens to be the first ground-up model to be released after its parent company Hyundai decided to make Genesis a separate luxury brand. Officially, it is the successor to the Hyundai Equus.
Genesis has tried to create a luxurious interior that’s backed up by a blissfully hushed and smooth ride with very good NVH management and modern suspension set-up. Highly adjustable seats come with ventilation and heat warmers. Most of the controls and interfaces aren’t overly complicated and hip points are pretty decent while passenger space is comparable to the rest of the class.
For 2018, the base model in Premium trim gets adaptive LED headlights, while the 5.0 Ultimate adds a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 10.3-inch screens. Also new is a CD/DVD player for both trims.
The top trim features a 12.3-inch touchscreen display for infotainment with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Befitting its flagship positioning, the G90 is loaded with goodies like a 17-speaker Lexicon-branded audio system, a 22-way power driver╒s seat, and power-closing door.
The G90 also has a longwheel version and in the GCC is offered with three engine options. The base model comes with the Lambda turbocharged 365hp 3.3-litre V6, the middle order is served by Lambda 311hp 3.8-litre V6 and top end 420hp Tau 5.0-litre V8. All engines are mated to 8-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC manual function. The G90 is available in both rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configuration.
Standard kit includes power steering, power windows, electric folding mirrors, central locking, keyless entry, push engine start-stop, leather upholstery, memory and ventilated seats, audio system with AUX/USB support, automatic climate control, navigation, auto defog system, rain sensors, sunroof, parking assist system, rear electric curtain, xenon headlamps, LED headlights and taillights with LED daytime running lamps, front and rear camera, air suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels.
