As Genesis’ flagship vehicle, the G90 provides the level of sophistication expected from a full-sized luxury sedan, but at a sensible price point. This award-winning car has everything a discerning driver could want: refined style, a quiet and plush interior, plenty of modern amenities and safety aids, and a potent powertrain selection.
The 2021 Genesis G90 comes with a complimentary maintenance plan that lasts for 3 years or 36,000 miles. It covers routine maintenance visits like oil changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections. There are two versions of the ’21 G90 you can choose from: the 3.3T and the 5.0. If you’ve had your sights set on this classy vehicle but aren’t entirely certain which trim you’d be interested in, this page can help you make a more informed decision.
Genesis G90 3.3T
Although this is the entry-level version, it has plenty of high-end features to enjoy. Under the hood, it gets a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine (365 hp and 376 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. With either drivetrain, the 3.3T returns an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Some of its most notable standard features include an elegant diamond-shaped grille, an adaptive control suspension, electronic damping control, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, quad-beam LED headlights, a hands-free power trunk, power soft-close doors (when the doors aren’t fully shut, the soft-close function automatically closes them in a quiet manner), dual-pane insulated acoustic glass, a head-up display, a wireless smartphone charger, Nappa leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated and ventilated front seats.
It also gets an infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, a premium 17-speaker Lexicon surround-sound audio system, and remote connected car services. What’s more, several advanced active safety aids are included, such as forward collision-avoidance assist, driver attention warning, lane keeping and following assist, safe exit assist, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, a blind-spot view monitor, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and a surround-view camera system.
Genesis G90 5.0
On top of every amenity mentioned for the 3.3T, the 5.0 is upgraded with its namesake 5.0-liter V8 engine, which makes 420 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Once again, both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive are offered, and the transmission is an eight-speed automatic. Some upscale features are added to the slate of standard equipment, such as a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 10.3-inch screens, ventilated power-adjustable rear outboard seats with position memory, and rear-seat illuminated vanity mirrors. With RWD, the 5.0 gets 16 mpg city/24 mpg highway, and with AWD, it achieves 16 city/23 highway.
