The new G90 uses double-paned glass, sound-deadening materials and acoustic chambers in the wheels to create a quite cabin space.

Electronically controlled dampers serve to smoothe the ride, or stiffen the suspension in sport mode.

The rear seat shows exceptional space, offering over 36 inches of legroom.

The base G90 comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.3-liter V-6 engine, but a 5-liter V-8 is available.

The wide C-pillar lets the rear glass slant back towards the trunk.

The G90 can be rear- or all-wheel-drive, and comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Although no pricing has been announced, the G90 will likely undercut the top Lexus sedan, not to mention top sedans from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
