To help members understand the latest automotive technology so they can purchase vehicles that best suit their needs, the Automobile Club of Southern California's Automotive Research Center (ARC) began testing and reviewing vehicles over a decade ago

For the 2023 edition, we include testing and ranking cars and light trucks with the latest technology, including having at least one advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) feature. In addition to vehicle evaluation, the guide covers a number of pertinent automotive topics in detail—for example, the latest advanced safety features, how to properly maintain your vehicle, and new vehicles coming to market in the next few years.

Overall Observations

The Genesis G90, the automaker’s flagship sedan, has been completely redesigned for 2023. But its primary mission remains unchanged: to provide occupants with a luxurious ride and pamper them with a host of comfort and convenience features, virtually all of which come standard. The G90’s new engine - our test vehicle had the turbocharged, supercharged version - is smooth, responsive, and powerful. The 8-speed transmission shifts smoothly and the air suspension (standard on the supercharged edition) delivers a calm, comfortable ride. All-wheel drive is standard. The spacious interior has good headroom and legroom for all passengers. It’s brimming with plush, high-end materials as well, including creature comforts you might not know you needed - or even existed - such as a Mood Curator that adjusts climate, interior lighting, seat massage, and air fragrance to suit its occupants’ different moods. The G90’s tech is top-notch too. Sophisticated ADAS systems include features such as blind-spot intervention, which automatically steers a car back into its lane if the driver tries to change lanes with a car in the G90’s blind spot. Criticisms include limited rear visibility due to wide rear roof pillars and rear head restraints; potentially confusing shifter and infotainment knobs, which are located next to each other; an exterior design not special or distinctive enough for a flagship sedan; and an overemphasis on chauffeur-type features for rear passengers.
