2021 Genesis G90 vs. Its Competition

2021 Genesis G90
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

Most luxury flagships share many of the same elements but none of the same character.

For its smooth quiet ride and understated luxury, the Lexus LS 500 shares the practical path of the G90.

The Volvo S90 doesn’t have the same interior space but the spartan design compels inside and out.

The benchmark for most full-size luxury sedans, the S-Class continues to evolve with performance, convertible, and ultra-lux Maybach variants.

The 7-Series tries to be the tech leader, but Audi does most of it simpler, even if its powertrains aren’t as varied as BMW’s.
