Though celebrating its European premiere in Geneva, the new Genesis G90 didn’t receive as much media attention as one might have expected.
Ask anybody at Hyundai and they’ll probably tell you that the G90 is capable of battling it out with Europe’s best in this segment, and to some extent, they could be right.
The car was after all rigorously tested at the Nurburgring in Germany during its development, and the fact that by purchasing a flagship 5.0-liter V8 model you also get 420 HP, at least puts you in the conversation with other luxury saloons.
As it so happens, this very model on display in Geneva is the G90 5.0 H-TRAC, which aside from the impressive power output, also comes with 509 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque and an advanced all-wheel drive system. Other powertrain configurations for the G90 include a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 T-GDI unit with 365 HP as well as the 3.8-liter V6 GDI, which is good for 311 HP.
However, some European customers might need to look elsewhere if they also care about fuel economy, since there currently is no diesel option available for the G90.
