2018 Genesis G90 vs. Its Competition

2018 Genesis G90
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Genesis G90 takes on some serious, established luxury rivals—but at a much, much lower price.

The BMW 7-Series is a perennial underdog despite its sporty pedigree.

It’s a good sedan, albeit one often discounted.

Does that say something? Maybe.

Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class sets the bar for luxury cars, but it’s nearly double the price of a G90.

Porsche’s Panamera offers more performance, less interior room, and infinite customization options.

It’ll take you a while to drive a Tesla Model S across the country, but this flagship luxury sedan remains highly competitive and is a statement piece as much as it is a car.

Lexus’ redesigned LS is a knockout at every level, yet it’s the G90 that channels the original Lexus better than the latest iteration does—if that’s your thing.
