Genesis is making significant moves in the American automotive industry. This offshoot of Hyundai, which became its own, standalone luxury brand in 2015, has been surprising critics and Genesis loyalists alike with its class-leading features at a great price.

Most auto critics have loved almost every 2023 Genesis model that they have tested. With two home runs so far this year in particular, here is everything you need to know about the 2023 Genesis models that have received fantastic reviews.

The 2023 Genesis GV60 earns praise across the board

If the 2023 Genesis GV60’s design looks familiar to you, that is no coincidence, this Genesis EV shares a platform with the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. The GV60 is not a simple rebadged Hyundai with Genesis logos and a leather interior, Genesis is a much better luxury brand than that.

The GV60 boasts 429 horsepower alongside a 321-mile range according to Genesis. Compared to its Hyundai Ioniq 5 cousin, the GV60 has more power and more range than any Ioniq 5 model available. 

Aside from the performance, Motor1 also praised the GV60’s fast charging capabilities and its huge 12.3-inch touchscreen and digital instrument cluster. The technological feats continue with the GV60’s facial recognition technology that allows the owner of the vehicle to leave their keys at home.

If there are any issues with the Genesis GV60, it is the price point, with the base model coming in at over $60,000 with an included destination fee. The GV60’s high price and scarce availability with its limited release in just a few states keep this EV SUV just shy of a perfect score.

The 2023 Genesis G90 is large and in charge

Genesis has a truly unique vehicle in the 2023 G90, being one of the only options available on the market when it comes to a full-size luxury sedan. The story of the G90 starts all the way back before Genesis was its standalone brand in the United States, with the full-size Hyundai Equus acting as the flagship sedan for the Hyundai division.

With the 2017 G90, Genesis had to make an entrance. Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura had already made their impression on the American luxury automotive market decades prior, so they had to make a splash with a luxury full-size sedan that could appeal to an American audience. Luckily, Genesis knows how to stand out among a crowd. Motor1’s review of the Genesis G90 features a 409 horsepower model with a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 engine.

From the start, the G90 makes a strong appearance with a bold exterior design full of design language that you can’t find anywhere else in the market. Sweeping lines with stark, horizontal lights that contrast against the rest of the car’s body can be found on the outside of the G90.

When it comes to the interior, the cabin is loaded with technology, including an 8-inch touch screen for back seat passengers to control their seats, climate control, and audio. The interior even has a Mood Curator to make sure the interior lighting is matching the mood of your drive.

While the Genesis G90 is a little expensive, it is a luxury full-size sedan that aims to improve on an already perfected formula from Mercedes and BMW with the S-Class and 7 Series respectively. With solid performance and an intense visual design, the 2023 G90 really impressed critics and consumers alike.
