2020 Genesis G90 Review - Finally As Good As The Mercedes S Class?

  • Published on Oct 22, 2019
  • 2020 Genesis G90 Review by The Straight Pipes. The Genesis G90 has been heavily refreshed for the 2020 model year, which brings it closer in line with some of its full size luxury car competitors like the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes S Class, Audi A8, Volvo S90, Lincoln Continental. With its 5L Naturally Aspirated V8 putting down 420hp and 383lb-ft of torque , it provides a lot of value at $89,750.

      @Purple Porker Hyundai bought Kia back in 1997 and Genesis is a luxury brand of Hyundai. Just like Lexus being a luxury brand of Toyota.

    Only issue with genesis is the fact that Hyundai built their brand on making the cheap cars for so long and now they build great vehicles. But I used to sell Hyundai and Genesis. Everybody would always say “a 75000 Hyundai?”
    Or “I thought Hyundai made cheap cars”

    Tom Hanks would be the perfect spokesperson for this car. He's sensible and classy, smart and accomplished. With a droll delivery, he could question the status quo of what passes for luxury but is really pretentiousness, and make the argument for luxury without the need to impress, 'cause he's got it all already without the car. No need to impress anyone else.

    First Hunday in the history of mankind that i will ever consider to buy.
    I hate Korean design, i hate big cars.
    I see lots of '90 vibes in the rear lights and the whole front, just as i should be, for me.
    Perfect proportions.
    This is a game changer.

    Hey guys! Firstly, I found your channel recently and I like how you review cars. Honest, factual and your observations are not overly exagerated *cough* Doug Demuro *cough*. I am a strong believer that you pay for what you get for. Yuri said it best: "You take the essential elements of the other brands and focus that in this car". Having said that, the price to pay for the service which is done by Hyundai is where it hurts! Hyundai North America has a HUGE issue with customer service. If I am about to drop 90K$ CDN on any car, I want the service to be tip-top! Lexus has been a solid stable when it comes to after-sales service and many car makers in the "premium category" such as Lincoln, Infiniti and Volvo have and continue to improve and cater to this selective clientele. Having done a stint at a Hyundai/Genesis dealership, I would wait a bit longer before considering buying this type of vehicle (G70 is OK). My money would be 1st: Mercedes-Benz E Class, Volvo S90, Lincoln Continental and BMW 5 Series (540i and above). Like anything in life, if you are paying less for something "similar" then this is a clear sign that something was sacrificed. Keep up the good work!

    I think the exterior design is really terrible...awful...absolutely ugly! But quite a lot of people here seem to love that.
    Hmm...Hyundai employees must be working hard here...lol Cheer up~!

    Love my 2017 G90 and looking forward to upgrading to 2020 next year. Disappointed that it still doesn't have heated/cooling cup holders like my old Chrysler 300.

      This is better than an S Class if you ask me. It does everything the Germans do just as good or better for tens of thousands less.

    It seems like every auto manufacturer is looking for people with big wallets and no sense of style. This car is ugly from the fake exhaust tips to cheap expanded metal looking grille. This car has every styling faux pas imaginable save the floating roof.

    Guys, the title is ridiculous and what you are doing is the same... First, the Mercedes is made of German metal... I should stop here and let you do whatever, but I'm also going to say that the Hyundai is made of some sort of Chinesium... Second, and after this one I'll leave you alone, you are comparing gadgets and general feeling at new; do the same after 100k miles and see which holds better... Also, regardless of the price tag, if you sit in a Hyundai, you will always look-up to a German car. Goodbye
