2019 Genesis G90 vs. Its Competition

2019 Genesis G90
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The top brass of the class are the Germans: Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7-Series, Audi A8.

All heap on tech and driver-assistance features, with a bevy of powertrains among them.

Compared to the G90, they’re a half-step more polished—but they run away from the G90’s low price.

The Acura RLX offers a hybrid powertrain that’s relatively frugal, but it’s not as polished as the Genesis.

The Cadillac CT6 is a smidge smaller than the rest, but it’s on the way out this year and could be steeply discounted.
