Genesis’ flagship G90 sedan is revised for 2023 with a styling update, new engine and suspension, plus additional tech features and a steep price hike. The 2023 G90 now comes standard with all-wheel drive for both of its trims, and it starts at $89,495 (all prices include destination) — over $10,000 more than the outgoing base model when it’s optional with AWD.

What does this price increase bring you? For starters, a new engine. The entry-level G90 3.5T AWD model uses a new 3.5-liter turbocharged engine developing 375 horsepower; it is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It replaces the outgoing options, a standard 365-hp twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 and an optional 420-hp 5.0-liter V8.
Along with a full suite of driver assistance and active safety features, Genesis says the new standard suspension technology will improve ride quality and handling. Camera-based Electronically Controlled Suspension with Road Preview monitors road conditions to optimize suspension for passenger comfort. Mood Curator is also new and standard, allowing customization and control of features such as ambient lighting, audio system, scent system, and massaging seat settings. Four different mood modes are available and each can be customized. And the Digital Key system, also standard, uses a smartphone app that allows the driver to unlock and start the vehicle simply by touching the door handle.
The other version for 2023 is the 3.5T AWD which adds a 48-volt electric supercharger to increase power up to 409 hp; it starts at $99,795. This trim adds extras such as the 3D surround sound feature which uses a Bang & Olufsen system to optimize musical themes. Power rear seats, wireless device charging in the rear, a rear wheel steering system and a three-way air suspension to improve stability depending on the conditions are standard.
The 2023 Genesis G90 goes on sale August 10.
