View our extensive inventory | Genesis Dealership Serving New JerseyRiding in style in a full-size luxury sedan is a great way to get around. What you might not know is the 2018 Genesis G90 serves up loads of premium comfort, technology, and conveniences in an attractive package. Any Genesis dealer serving New Jersey would be happy to let you try one on the road, since it's such a compelling vehicle. Just as interesting is how the Genesis G90 compares to the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.


When searching for a 2018 Genesis G90, price might be a concern. Your Genesis NJ dealer can give you the exact details on pricing for every option you would like, but know that that G90 is a surprisingly affordable luxury sedan. The base model has an MSRP that starts at just $68,350. Even if you choose the top-of-the-line Genesis G90 5.0 Ultimate AWD, MSRP is still only $74,350. That's well under the starting MSRP of $89,900 for a Mercedes-Benz S 450, showing that the G90 is truly loaded with value.


While you might not be racing on a track, a powerful engine helps you get up to freeway speeds, pass, and climb hills with confidence. Choosing the 2018 Genesis G90 5.0 Ultimate means you get a stout 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 420 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. That outmuscles the 3.0-liter V-6 in the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S 450, which only puts out 362 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque.

Interior Space

One of the highlights of a full-size luxury sedan enjoying the ample space it provides. It's a great option for taller drivers and passengers, or anyone who wants to hit the open road for adventure. With the Genesis G90, front legroom is quite impressive at 46.3 inches. That's markedly more than the 41.4 inches you get with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. When you need trunk space for luggage or other cargo items, the Genesis G90 has you covered, with a full 16 cubic feet of trunk space. The Mercedes-Benz S 560 only gives you 12 cubic feet of space in the trunk.

Convenience Features

Another reason to choose a luxury model is the excellent convenience features that are loaded into the car. You certainly enjoy quite a few with either sedan. The Genesis G90 comes with speed-sensitive wipers and a windshield wiper de-icer. Both are great for inclement weather at home or while traveling. You'll also enjoy the convenience of a remote fuel door release, which makes gas station stops that much easier. Genesis also includes a CD/MP3 player in the G90 for more entertainment options on the road. It may surprise you to learn that you can't get any of these conveniences on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, no matter what trim you choose.

Fuel economy for the G90 with front-wheel drive is estimated by the EPA at 21 mpg combined (18 mpg city/25 mpg highway).* All-wheel drive, models are rated at 20 mpg combined (18 mpg city/24 mpg highway).
