Car is very important for people in general because it offers status and the opportunity for personal control and self-sufficiency. In lightly populated areas, owning a car is even more vital, since it provides the only chance for traveling long distances due to the absence of public transport.
Genesis G90 Sedan
Genesis is Hyundai’s fresh stand-alone luxury division, and the five-seat G90 full-size sedan is its star model. Though less classy than German luxury sedans like the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and Audi A8, the G90 is nearly the same size and is designed for the same customer. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive, the G90 gets its power from a standard 365-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 or an optional 420-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The G90 has an extensive list of standard features like adaptive LED headlights, a hands-free power-opening trunk lid, a 22-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 16-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, power-cinching doors, and power rear sunshades. You also don’t have to spend any extra for active safety features like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and a driver drowsiness monitor.
There’s a standard 12.3-inch screen for the multimedia and navigation systems, wireless device charging, a head-up display, and a Lexicon premium stereo. The top-level 5.0 Ultimate adds power-adjustable rear seats with memory and a rear-seat entertainment system, among other features.

The CX-30 is Mazda’s latest small crossover, slotting between the CX-3 and CX-5. If you’re wondering why it isn’t just called CX-4, it’s because Mazda already sells a vehicle by that name in other markets, and the company tells me that CX-30 marks the beginning of a new naming convention that will eventually be applied to the whole lineup.
The 2020 CX-30 is offered with either front- or all-wheel drive, motorized by a 2.5-liter, naturally aspirated I4 engine with 186 horsepower, 186 pound-feet of torque and a six-speed automatic transmission. This is the similar powertrain you’ll find in the Mazda3, and for the most part, it’s okay. There’s enough power on tap once you’re up and going, but off the line, this CUV is a little slow — largely a product of the engine’s torque not being fully available until 4,000 pm.
