03 Driving Performance
A fundamental brand characteristic of all Genesis models is the careful melding of sporty agility and refined performance. At the pinnacle of the Genesis line, G90 achieves these often competing goals via an extensive research, development and testing regime.
G90’s engineers worked closely with the company’s European Test Centre based at Germany’s demanding Nürburgring circuit, and also put the car through its paces in controlled environments at the company’s Namyang R&D Center and California Proving Grounds in the Mojave Desert. Through an intensive program of testing and development, the engineering team refined G90 ride, handling, steering feel and suspension damping to deliver an exhilarating driving experience with overall dynamics that are simultaneously luxurious, sporty and refined. G90 also features Intelligent Drive Mode with four distinct driving settings: Eco, Smart, Sport, and Individual (driver-specified parameters). These four driver-selectable modes provide unique calibration settings for suspension, steering, stability control, engine, transmission and available AWD, allowing the driver to determine G90 driving character based on personal driving preferences, road quality, or traffic conditions. Further, G90 includes proprietary “Smart Shift and Drive Control” automatic transmission technology that analyzes driving style and adjusts shift character, engine torque response and suspension damping in real-time driving conditions.
As a foundation for better handling precision, G90 body rigidity has been increased, with an overall bending rigidity six-percent higher than the Mercedes-Benz S550. To achieve this impressive rigidity, G90 utilizes 52 percent Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), a full 300 percent more than the previous generation, along with more than 650 feet of advanced structural adhesives.
To achieve the smoothest possible ride comfort while retaining engaging dynamics, G90 is fitted with a multi-link suspension design for minimized camber and toe changes throughout the suspension travel range. Rear cross member bushings were also improved from a rubber to a hydro construction. In addition, the Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension (GACS) with electronic damping control smoothly and precisely controls body motions throughout the range of dynamics with minimal compromises to ride comfort. This adaptive control suspension, sourced from Sachs/ZF®, offers independent damping control for both rebound and compression strokes of suspension travel for improved body and yaw control. G90 motor-driven power steering was further refined with optimized assist-and-recovery calibrations and increased steering torsion bar rigidity for more precise steering responsiveness. Large, 19-inch turbine-blade design alloy wheels with 245/45R19 front and 275/40R19 rear performance tires ensure immediate response to steering inputs and precise handling character.

G90 brakes were also improved for greater fade resistance with larger, 14.8 inch rotors (5.0 V8 model) and thicker (34 mm) front rotors, with dedicated cooling vents in the front fascia for enhanced front brake heat dissipation. Rear brake performance was also enhanced with larger, 13.4 inch rotors. G90 brake calipers use a 4-piston fixed design in front and a 2-piston fixed design in the rear.
‘Safety without compromise’ summarizes the passenger-centered philosophy that has directed the development of the G90. Its world-class safety technologies accompanied by outstanding structural rigidity combine to increase its overall safety quotient. G90 is expected to receive a 5-star safety rating (NHTSA), and a Top Safety Pick+ (IIHS), based on preliminary internal crash tests. All individual crash scenario classifications are expected to receive a Good rating or above.
The G90 body structure has been strengthened with a dual-layer member connection design and a newly optimized load-dispersion structure for the small overlap crash test. A variety of class-leading standard safety technologies work to minimize risk and maximize protection for the driver, passenger and other road users. These advanced safety features include: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Blind Spot Detection (SBSD), Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross-traffic Alert, Driver Attention Alert, Dynamic Bending Light headlights with High Beam Assist, and a 360-degree Multi-view Monitor. In addition, G90 also features Smart Cruise Control with Stop/Start capability. For enhanced visibility for the driver, the Head’s-up Display has been increased from 7.4 inches to 9.7 inches with enhanced illumination.
05 Convenience Features
Simplicity and intuitive function were key elements in the development of G90 convenience features, delivering the ultimate carefree ownership experience for owners. In developing the car’s specifications and trim levels, every effort was made to provide customers with everything most customers would need without anything unnecessary or overly complicated.
Seating comfort was a key development target for G90. Ergo-design seating, including an electronically-controlled, 22-way power driver’s seat including power bolsters, cushion extension and shoulder adjustment, was approved by the German campaign for healthier backs, Aktion Gesunder Rücken. The G90 passenger seat offers 16-way adjustment for optimal comfort. All front seat positions, side mirrors and steering column position are controlled by an integrated memory system. Front seat positions offer both heating and ventilation.
The upscale rear outboard passenger seats are electronically-adjustable in 12 ways (14-ways for the right seat position) on the 5.0 V8 model, ensuring the highest levels of comfort. These luxurious seats were carefully developed via thorough analysis of the renowned “Stressless” seat design. In addition, the rear seats offer heat, with ventilation on 5.0 V8 models. The rear seats offer an unusually high comfort level on V8 models, including power: slide linked with recline, shoulder-adjusters, rear lumbar support, 4-way head restraints and a rear integrated memory system controlled by a dedicated rear console selector.
Many of the car’s features rely on interaction with the car’s audio visual system displayed via a luxurious 12.3-inch high-definition widescreen in the center stack, operated via DIS control knob. The screen plays a key role in enhancing the ease of parking and tight urban maneuvering for drivers. A one-megapixel digital camera is activated when parking, simultaneously sharing the screen with a high-resolution 360-degree Multi-view monitor with steering guidelines. A heads-up display helps drivers to find key driving data while keeping their eyes safely on the road ahead. In addition, a seven-inch high-resolution TFT-LCD display enhances data recognition for the driver from the center gauge cluster.
Depending on individual taste or mood, one of seven interior ambient lighting mood lamps can be selected, and LED lamps are positioned in the overhead console and cabin lighting positions. From the outside mirrors, Genesis-logo approach lamps are projected on the ground for enhanced visibility while approaching the vehicle.
Ultra-high fidelity was an absolute development requirement for the G90 audio system. Presenting a concert-like experience, the Lexicon® Premium Sound System boasts QuantumLogic® Surround sound with 17 speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer. Developed in concert with Grammy Award-winning artists and producers, QuantumLogic® Surround is a revolutionary new audio algorithm that is designed to mimic the acoustics of the original performance and recording space, identifying individual voices and instruments and re-authoring these into a precise multi-channel soundstage. In addition, Clari-Fi® music reconstruction technology rebuilds sonic details typically lost in the compression process for digital music sources, adjusting fine musical nuances based on the overall quality of the audio signal. This helps to further maximize the high-fidelity listening experience with every track. On the 5.0L V8 model, the rear seats feature dual rear monitors with 9.2-inch, segment-first high-definition screens that can be controlled from the rear seat Driver Information System controller.
Elsewhere in the finely-appointed cabin, the ventilation system offers three distinct zones of control with a segment-first cabin CO2-level sensor and Air Quality System (AQS) that allows additional fresh air to enter the cabin when needed. The G90 steering wheel also offers a heating function as standard. G90 passengers can now conveniently charge their mobile devices with the latest Qi wireless-charging standard technology and utilize both front and rear USB ports. For ease of entry, the G90 includes a proximity key with an integrated push-button start system. Power rear- and rear-side-window sunshades are also standard. From the outside, a power Smart Trunk with hands-free opening adds convenience whenever the owner’s hands are full for convenient loading and unloading, and all doors have power door closure function. For adverse weather, G90 also offers a windshield wiper de-icer, rain-sensing wipers and an auto-defogging windshield.
06 Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH)
Engineers focused on segment-leading low NVH as a key differentiator for G90, dedicating hundreds of hours to fine-tuning every aspect of noise reduction and comfort enhancement. This obsessive attention to detail has resulted in G90 boasting best-in-class ratings for in-cabin noise levels, a major achievement in this critical area of refinement in the luxury segment.
With special sound-absorbing materials throughout the cabin, to the application of specially laminated acoustic film glass on every window, the G90 cabin is a pleasant refuge for its passengers. Road noise was further minimized through the development of a specialized Helmholtz design, with hollow, two-piece wheel construction, and an integral sound absorption chamber for the 19-inch alloy wheels. This design produces an innovative resonance effect which provides sound absorption for reduced tire noise levels in addition to lower overall unsprung weight (7 lbs. lower) for more responsive handling and better ride comfort.
Sound engineering also extended to the suspension set-up, optimized at test centers around the world for high-speed cruising, while minimizing cabin noise intrusion and body vibration. Wind noise in the cabin has been reduced through the application of a 3-layer weather-strip seal on all doors. Special double sound-proof glass insulation is now also applied to the rear glass, while carpet and headliner insulation thickness have been increased by more than 20 percent. In the rear quarter panel, a special plate foam pad has been added as a special sound block for rear passengers.
For the powertrain, the intake ducting now employs a variable-type valve for minimized intake resonance at various engine speeds. In addition, transmission-housing rigidity has been improved with external rib enhancements and increased thickness leading to reduced NVH. In the engine bay, a special single continuous powertrain seal has been applied for reduced sound penetration into the cabin. Underneath G90, underbody airflow has been improved for reduced turbulence and wind noise, greater efficiency and enhanced stability at higher speeds.
