You’ll be tempted to drive this powerful sedan, but here are six reasons why you’ll want to be driven.
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to have a chauffeur and be driven everywhere you need to go? Me too! So when I got my first look at the Genesis G90, I knew exactly how it would feel – absolute luxury!
Sure, driving the Genesis G90 is smooth, quiet, with an all-powerful 420 horsepower V8. And at $75,000/US it’s well priced and deliver a lot of luxury, possibly much more than its competitors from BMW, Lexus or Cadillac. But nothing quite beats the feeling of the rear-seat luxury in this beauty.
Here are 6 reasons the rear of the Genesis G90 makes you feel just a little like a movie star being driven to your next red carpet event!
1. Control All the Entertainment From the Back Seat
I have never ridden in the back of a car that let me control the music, both audio source and volume, from the rear seats. The center console in the back seat of the G90 is almost like second infotainment and driver console because it has all of the functionality a chauffeured passenger could need and more.
2. Rear Climate Control for a Little More Ahhhh…
Yes, even the climate control in the rear of the car can be adjusted in the rear by the passenger and is a separate zone from the front two seats. Your driver may need heat, while you may want to keep yourself cool for your calm cool arrival at the red carpet.
3. Heated and Ventilated Seats
If the temperature isn’t quite right, add heated and cooled seating in the rear to make it even more comfortable. This comes in especially handy on hot days with a pet in the back seat. Extra ventilation for them is always a good thing!
4. Absolute Customizable Comfort
The seats in the rear (and front) are adjustable in every way, even a ‘Rest Mode’ in the back reclines the seat to give you time to close your eyes for a moment should your driver be stuck in traffic or you have an extra-long commute to the airport for your private-jet getaway.
The leather seating is soft and very cushioned as well as wide and spacious for any size human (or animal in the back).

5. Privacy and Sun Protection
The rear windows, all 3, have screens that are electronically controlled with the touch of a button. This was the first time I’d seen a rear window in a sedan with a window shade but it won’t be the last (just have a look at my upcoming Lexus ES300h story!)
6. More Goodies to Round Out the Luxury Experience
The G90 is filled with touches that make you feel like you really are on your way to a red carpet movie premiere, like high end finishes, a quiet cabin, rear mirrors, and coat hangers, not to mention exterior styling.
So Let’s Talk About the Exterior Styling for a Moment
The lines and lights on the G90 are nothing short of beautiful. It was mistaken for a Bentley in several of my TikTok videos! The front grille is massive, but I love that. I know some don’t – but if you’re going to own a $90k luxury sedan, let people gawk at this massive grille coming at them, I say.

The MSRP on the Genesis G90 is $89,878 CAD / $75,725 USD and includes all of the luxurious details at an all inclusive price.
This car is truly a luxurious choice, from the exterior styling to the high-end finishes, to the rear-seat amenities. Whether you’re on the go with your family, an important client, or you really do have a driver of your own, the G90 will not disappoint.
