2018 Genesis G90 vs. BMW 7 Series in Concord, NC


The BMW 7 Series has long been one of the dominant offerings in the midsized sedan market when it comes to luxury models, but the new Genesis G90 is a relative newcomer that's deserving of far more attention. A longtime dominant force in the luxury market like BMW can mostly rely on name recognition to sell its cars, while the G90 actually earns its clear advantages in several aspects. Take a look through this comparison to decide which luxury sedan is going to be your best bet, then visit us in Concord today.

  • As we've mentioned throughout this page, pricing is where the G90 is going to offer its clearest advantage. With a price nearly $15,000 lower than the BMW 740i, the G90 offers you the kind of luxurious design, dynamic performance and innovative tech features that the German-made sedan provides, but you won't be compelled to spend that much more.
  • Some of the advantages of the G90 over the 7 Series are subtle and small, but they really add up. Features like rear side airbags, height adjustable seatbelts, side mirror turn signals, speed-sensitive wipers and windshield wiper de-icer are all standard with the G90, while not available with the 7 Series. You'd think that huge cost for the BMW would actually include some features like this, but it's the Genesis G90 that really comes through.
  • The twin-turbo 3.3-liter V-6 in the G90 is good for 365 horsepower, which easily bests the engine setup in the 740i, which only has a 320-horsepower output. When you're spending big on a luxury car, performance is key, and this is just another way the Genesis G90 stands out.

2018 Genesis G90 vs. Mercedes-Benz S-Class in Concord, NC


If BMW boasts one of the most iconic luxury sedans out there, you know Mercedes-Benz isn't far behind. Offering a range of sedans in its iconic S-Class, Mercedes-Benz goes all out with luxury models like the pricey S 550, which you'll compare here to the G90. Once again, pricing proves to be the huge selling point of the G90 over renowned sedans like the S-Class, and as you'll see below, the savings here are even more significant. See how the new 2018 Genesis G90 bests the high-end Mercedes-Benz S-Class before visiting our Charlotte area dealership today.



  • If you're looking to spend as much as possible on a luxury sedan, the S 550 is going to push you toward six-figures, with an estimated $96,600 price tag. That's nearly $30,000 more than what the starting package of the G90 will command, so the advantage here is clear.
  • On top of the more affordable starting price, the G90 offers incredible value in its strong warranty plans, besting what Mercedes-Benz includes with the S-Class in terms of the basic, powertrain and corrosion plans.
  • A luxury car should not only be fun to drive and come with the useful tech features you'd expect if you're paying that much, but it should also be comfortable. The G90 is just about the same size as the S 550, but both front headroom and especially front-seat legroom in the Genesis sedan easily best what the Mercedes-Benz offers.


2018 Genesis G90 vs. Audi A8 in Concord, NC


Audi often eschews the over pretentiousness of other German luxury automakers, making its vehicles more achievable for a wider variety of drivers. Yet they still carry around a sense of legacy and tradition, which is a great thing for enthusiasts of Audi, but it may also prevent them from taking things further like the new 2018 G90 has. When comparing the G90 to Audi's full-sized sedan, the new 2018 A8, you'll notice that beyond the considerably lower price, the Genesis luxury model performs better and includes more standard safety features. Look through this comparison and see how the new 2018 Genesis G90 bests yet another iconic luxury sedan: the new 2018 Audi A8.

  • The starting MSRP for the G90 is about $15,000 lower than what the Audi A8 starts off with. That's especially important to notice as the new G90 is better equipped with a number of standard features like smart cruise control with stop/start, lane departure warning and keep assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, all of which are available with the new A8, but come at a considerably higher cost.
  • Performance is key in a luxury sedan, and it's another area where the new G90 bests the A8. The starting 3.3-liter twin turbo V-6 in the G90 produces 365 horsepower, while the turbocharged 3.0-liter engine with the A8 tops out at only 333 horsepower.
  • Along with slick styling and dynamic performance, any luxury sedan ought to have the goods when it comes to tech and infotainment features. Both the G90 and A8 certainly accommodate the driver with a variety of standard and available features, but in the Genesis model, the enormous 12.3-inch touchscreen makes for accessing your features much easier than what's available with the A8's 8-inch screen.
