2017 Genesis G90 AWD




Genesis is the 2nd Luxury Brand to begin in the 21st century. It is the Luxury Brand of Hyundai.

Genesis only has 2 models of cars the G80 and G90, and I love that they are simple. They offer NO options, the vehicles are standard with features so they have a set price, and that is it. No options to decide from. ONLY option is AWD or not (which is $2500 more). 
Genesis offers complimentary Maintenance for 3 years! As well as a 10 year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

I had the luxury of testing the Genesis G90 for a week!
I really wish I had this in the summer so the pictures didn't look so gloomy

The Genesis G90  AWD receives 17/24 MPG, with an average of 20 MPG. This car has some SERIOUS pickup to it. This is possibly the fastest 0-60 car I've ever had. NOW most won't be drag racing in their luxury vehicle, but this is something I test with all vehicles I test.... because I can!


All controls right at your fingertips

It looks like a lot of controls/buttons, I know, but trust me, it was super easy!

 Electronic shifter and heated/cooled seats!






This G90 had some SERIOUS leg room, but you haven't seen the best of it yet.

The passenger seat completely comes forward and out of the way for the rear passenger. There are controls there on the drivers side so the driver can control the seat. There are also controls in the rear for the rear passenger to control it as well.

This back seat fit a car seat, a booster and my daughter in the middle with EASE! I forgot to take a picture though, but it was a seamless process. We use a Diono RXT and a Combi Kobuk for seats. 

THIS is the rear legroom, in the middle pic is behind the drivers seat, plenty of room there, but the right pic is me behind the folded up passenger seat!!! LOOK at that room! I felt like I was on a private jet back there!

The controls from the rear seat. They can control the radio (this can be turned off), their temperature, move the front seat and more.

Vents in rear, they are right by the door.
 Cupholders in rear. 

The G90 featured a rear window shade as well as rear side window shades. Electronically powered and super easy/fun to do.

The G90 had the fancy side view mirrors. When the car is in reverse they rotate down to make sure you're clear of objects, when put back in drive they rotate back up.


I've never seen an automatic trunk on a car! Well the G90 had that!

At night when you lock your car or when you approach it, the mirror has the logo that lights up the ground. Fancy Fancy!

The G90 features a 22 way adjustable driver seat (and yes, it has memory so you never forget your placement). Also, as you adjust the seat, the headrest moves accordingly and can determine how tall you are based on seat placement. It also features pedestrian detection. Each purchase of a G90 comes with an Amazon Echo so you can start your car (or lock/unlock) from the comfort of your own home. They also have Genesis Connect which is an app that does the same. And the G90 also features a 360° backup camera.

Here is the Camera, in the first you can see that it is 360° and you can see all around the vehicle, as well as the standard backup camera. In the middle you can see that you can change the view and can make it JUST the backup camera. AND when you put your car back in drive it shows you a front image as well to make sure you're clear of all obstacles! I LOVED this about the G90

This car had SO many features, I didn't even touch the surface, but this is long already as it is. 
Overall I completely fell in LOVE with this G90. I want to buy one... like TOMORROW! 

The model I received was 3.3T AWD so the total price on it was $70,600. Base is $68,100 without the AWD. I LOVE that they have no extra features, they are all standard! They also offer a 5.0 style. The G80 model is $41,400 base price, with a few different styles to choose from.

I know the G90 seems super expensive, but it's a VERY competitive price to other luxury brands, and probably has more features!

The G90 is a VERY safe vehicle, it features 9 airbags, Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Anti Whiplash front head restraints, and more. I touched base on a bit in a couple places earlier in this post.


This car was stunning! Here is a stock image of this car so you can see the TRUE color, it's Manhattan Brown and it's STUNNING!





*Disclaimer, I received a Genesis G90 for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle
