2020 Genesis G90 Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 8.0

The 2020 Genesis G90 has two potent engine choices and a composed ride, though it’s not particularly sporty, and fuel economy is poor for the class.

  • "Once speeds pick up, though, it's easier to separate the G90 from the German sedans that cost tens of thousands of dollars more. At 65 mph, you can feel a busy undertone to the ride that's simply absent in a hunkered-down S-Class or 7 Series. It's extra noticeable for rear-seat passengers, as the rear end seems to be less firmly planted than the front." -- Road and Track
  • "The refreshed 2020 G90 feels the way you'd want a big luxury sedan to drive: very comfortable on highways and planted at all times. Genesis made a great move by staying with 19-inch wheels since the taller tire sidewalls provide better ride comfort. Driver and passengers feel isolated from road imperfections. It's very quiet inside with nary a hint of wind noise and just minuscule tire noise." -- Edmunds
  • "The G90 is a big car, and it won’t let you forget it from behind the wheel. … This is not a car for hustling, and it makes no sporting pretensions, but neither is it a wallowing yacht when asked to turn – it’s bulky, but reasonably athletic." -- Autoblog

Acceleration and Power

The Genesis G90 comes standard with a 3.3-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine is a 5.0-liter V8 that makes 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Both powertrains deliver responsive acceleration and comparable performance. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard.

The 2020 G90’s fuel economy is poor for a luxury large car. The standard G90 with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The G90 with the V8 engine and rear-wheel drive gets 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, while V8 models with all-wheel drive return 15/23 mpg city/highway.

  • "The V8 makes the G90 quicker, but not meaningfully so. The V6, which delivers nearly equal peak torque 3,700 rpm earlier in the rev range, is the practical choice for more than just financial reasons." -- Autoblog
  • "The twin-turbo V6 is strong, with lots of low-end torque. The V8, meanwhile, offers a heartier exhaust note and linear power delivery. I think the 5.0-liter engine kind of suits the G90's boulevardier character a little better -- there's something about a big engine in a big sedan that just feels right. But since no one is buying a G90 for its performance credentials, for most people, the 3.3T engine offers more than enough grunt." -- CNET
  • "It's generally easy to get up to speed and merge or pass slow vehicles. The turbo V6 feels more potent than the V8 since it produces more low-rpm torque. The 5.0-liter V8 is strong but there's more immediacy in the V6." -- Edmunds

Handling and Braking

The Genesis G90 has a plush, comfortable ride and a relaxed driving demeanor. Critics disagree about its handling. Some say that it feels less connected to the road. There are also mixed reviews about the steering being light or heavy and how much feedback there is from the road.

  • "There’s nothing about G90 that encourages aggressive driving. The ride is soft, but there’s no floatiness to its motions. The steering is heavy and insulated from the road, the throttle travel is long and its response is languid. So, sit back and relax and enjoy the benefits of joining the AARP." -- Car and Driver
  • "The G90 doesn't have the same bank-vault solidity of an Audi A8 or BMW 7 Series on the road -- it can be a touch floaty by comparison -- but by no means is the ride uncomfortable or unsorted. With light but accurate steering, a suspension that soaks up all but the largest bumps and no wind or tire noise permeating the cabin, I'd happily drive one of these things from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back in one sitting." -- CNET
  • "It's important to note that the G90 is more American in its driving dynamics than German. A soft, wafting demeanor was prioritized over the composed, stiffer setup of a conventional autobahn cruiser. Truth be told, the Genesis prefers not to hustle." -- Road and Track
