So Hyundai finally revealed a new version of the Genesis sedan in full at the Detroit Motor Show, and the first thing you need to know about it is that it’s not called a Hyundai anymore. This car is officially called the 2017 Genesis G90, as it goes on sale in America under the Genesis brand.

Regardless of what that says about Hyundai’s confidence in their own brand, the new Genesis G90 is everything you expect it to be. That means it’s a big luxury sedan with tons of features, good powertrains, very nice quality, a meh design, and incredible value for money. I mean, if you can get past the brand and the way it looks, this thing is better than an S-Class!

One of the highlights of the 2017 Genesis G90 is the GENESIS SMART SENSE which is a comprehensive safety package consisting of tech features such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start, Smart Blind Spot Detection and Lane Keep Assist. Then there is the luxury stuff, including items like 22-way power driver seat, nappa leather, Lexicon and pretty much anything else you get from the Germans in this class.

As for the powertrains, the G90 comes with a new 3.3-liter direct-injected, twin-turbocharged V6 engine developing an estimated 365 horsepower – the engine we are expecting to see in the next Genesis Coupe – and the old Tau 5.0 liter V8 with 420 horsepower. In the chassis department, active damping and multi-link suspension plus 19-inch wheel guarantee a refined and comfortable ride with very low NHV levels. There is even an optional H-TRAC AWD system available if you live somewhere with slippery roads.
