ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • A bold new look highlights the midcycle refresh of the 2020 Genesis G90.
  • Engine choices remain a base twin-turbo V6 or a naturally aspirated V8.
  • The new G90 will be on sale in December of 2019.

The Genesis G90 serves as the flagship of the Genesis brand, which is still a fairly new luxury brand. Even though the G90 has already been around since the 2017 model year, it is already receiving a significant refresh for the 2020 model year. The changes are mostly aesthetic, but the changes are significant enough to get our attention.

Bold New Look

The pre-face-lift G90 is a nice-looking luxury sedan, but the post-face-lift model commands attention in a bigger way. This full-size sedan has what Genesis calls "Athletic Elegance and Horizontal Architecture" design themes that translate to a car with a huge grille, a rear light bar and an overall look that says "flagship" in a louder voice than its predecessor. The roof and the doors are the same as the 2019 model, but other than that, every other body panel on the G90 has been changed for 2020.

The interior also has a revised look that makes it look a little more modern. Everything is very parallel and horizontal in this interior, giving it a dignified look while also serving a practical purpose with ergonomic controls. It's clear that Genesis prioritizes premium materials when crafting the interior of its updated flagship.

Modern Technology

The 2020 G90 gets some technological updates to keep it competitive with other luxury flagship sedans that are often more expensive. For example, it now has touchscreen controls on its 12.3-in infotainment system and over-the-air wireless updates for maps and software. You get standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay plus car management services that keep you up to date on any necessary maintenance or vehicle wear.

To help keep things quiet in this lovely interior, the G90 has Active Noise Cancellation which uses audio technology to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. Another thing that helps with that is adaptive control suspension that keeps the ride smooth and quiet. Sound-deadening is even engineered into optional 19-in wheels that use sound absorption technology to reduce tire noise.

Some new safety technology for the Genesis brand debuts on the 2020 G90 including lane-keeping assist, which helps with lane centering and steering assistance, rear cross-traffic assist, forward-collision mitigation, which can help detect vehicles including bicycles, safe exit assist, which alerts the driver of objects approaching an opening door, and highway driving assist, which serves as semiautonomous driving tech that helps you stay in your lane at a safe distance from the car in front of you on the highway.

When Can I Get One?

You won't have to wait long for the 2020 Genesis G90 -- it goes on sale in December of 2019. Pricing hasn't yet been confirmed for the 2020 model as of this writing, but the 2019 model starts at $69,350 and we expect the 2020 G90 to have a similar cost of entry. Find a Genesis G90 for sale
