As the flagship successor to the celebrated Hyundai Equus, the new 2017 Genesis G90 excels, says Kelley Blue Book, and in no uncertain terms. The expert calls it "exceedingly comfortable, quiet, and surprisingly agile," a model of "all the luxury trappings" and "masterfully" so. So what makes the 2017 G90 from Genesis a standout?

For one, even the base Genesis G90 3.3T Premium, says KBB, is "loaded" right out the gate, a full-size luxury sedan, they continue, to make a strong competitive showing against segment rivals like Lexus LS and Audi A8. For our Atlanta, GA Genesis dealer, it's easy to see why.

The power of a hard-charging 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 is just the beginning. Nappa leather seating surfaces offer a practical lap of luxury, a 22-way-adjustable driver's seat met only with the comfort for fellow riders that a dovetailing 16-way passenger seat can deliver. A standard 12.3-inch infotainment system burgeons from the dash, putting control of numerous apps and vehicle functions within reach, flanked by a 17-speaker Lexicon audio system delivering the height of symphony-quality sound for the trip. Factor in rear and rear side power sunshades, and 2017 Genesis G90 becomes a world apart.

But for KBB as for us here at Jim Ellis Genesis, the favorite was the safety suite standard in the new 2017 G90, replete with driver-assist tech galore. It includes active cruise control with full stop and start to make the drive a pleasure cruise, alongside lane-keeping assist for maintaining course with feedback and emergency braking with pedestrian detection to help stave off a collision. There's even a driver attention monitor that helps you remain focused, and with more than a little help from metrics at a glance via a standard head-up display.
