The Genesis G90 aims to take on some heavy hitters.
The big German sellers are in the same size class, but it's hard to think of someone stepping down from the BMW 7-Series or the Mercedes-Benz S-Class into a G90 if they're at all brand-snobbish--and the same holds true for the Audi A8, which may have some great tech features, such as its Google Earth maps, but its look isn't so distinct.
Elsewhere, it comes close to Japanese luxury marques.
In several decades of building the Lexus brand with standalone dealerships and products that really take on the German stalwarts, Lexus has an enviable reputation with its LS, which is, like the G90, a little cool to the touch and disengaged from the driving experience.
And while not quite as large, Infiniti's extended-wheelbase Q70 makes a decent competitor, although it too is somewhat more driver-focused.
