There’s fairly a bit to like concerning the newly refreshed 2023 Genesis G90 E-Supercharger AWD. It’s a luxurious sedan good for cruising in type. Naturally, there are bells and whistles galore. However maybe the sweetest optionally available additional on the model’s flagship sedan is that there are none. With most luxurious fashions, the choices and packages are seemingly infinite and more and more expensive. However the Korean maker has adopted a distinct philosophy: In the event you purchase their top-of-the-line, the whole lot comes customary.
Energy and Efficiency
Underneath the hood of this road-going schooner, sits a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 beefed up with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system the model calls an “e-supercharger,” which yields 409 hp and and 405 lb-ft of torque. Not too shabby. With the assistance of an eight-speed computerized transmission, the 2023 Genesis G90 E-Supercharger AWD will saunter from 0-60mph in a tick or two below 5 seconds—once more…not too shabby.
Whereas the G90 is pretty fast, nothing about it feels sporty, nor ought to it. That’s not the purpose. The facility is purposeful and a part of the curated, opulent expertise.
Driving some rain-soaked roads in and round Miami, the G90 does practically the whole lot you ask of it with fluidity and beauty. It’s managed in corners, however not tight, and whereas the steering feels barely boring, it’s exact. Plus, due to the addition of rear-wheel steering and a 12 p.c stiffer chassis, in comparison with the earlier model, the practically 208-inch keel feels extra like a clipper than supertanker.
The eight-speed computerized’s shifts are fairly suave and the start-stop energy-saving operate is likely one of the most seamless we’ve skilled. To maintain the G90 crusing easily, front-facing cameras consider the street floor for bumps and the multi-chamber air-suspension adjusts in anticipation of jolts, mitigating all however essentially the most cavernous pot holes.
