View our extensive inventory | Genesis Dealers In Washington TownshipNow in its second model year, the 2018 Genesis G90 continues to demonstrate that luxury sedan buyers can get everything they want without having to pay the extra cost associated with a European luxury marque. Genesis' flagship model is popular with customers at dealerships like Cherry Hill Genesis, thanks to its upscale interior, sophisticated design and long list of features that come standard (many of which offered as expensive options on other luxury sedans). The G90 is truly a luxury vehicle at a value price.

The 2018 Porsche Panamera is a luxury sports sedan that competes with the Genesis G90. We'll take a close look at both vehicles to see which one is the best buy.


While a vehicle's manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) isn't the actual price you'll pay at a dealership like the Cherry Hill Genesis dealer, it's a good way to compare the relative cost of two vehicles. The 2018 Porsche Panamera is a very expensive luxury sedan, with a starting MSRP of $85,000. The 2018 Genesis G90 starts at $68,350. That's a savings of $16,650. We believe you'll want to keep that money in the bank. According to The Car Connection, the estimated monthly payment on the G90 is $1,139 a month, while the Panamera will set you back $1,417 a month.

Interior Ease of Use

The 2018 Genesis G90 features controls that are easy to figure out without having to read the car's user manual. The automotive experts at Edmunds.com gave the G90 4.5-out-of-five stars in this category. Edmunds gave the 2018 Porsche Panamera just 2.5 stars, writing: "The operation of the capacitive touch 'buttons' take the driver's attention away from the road, and the gear selector takes some getting used to."

Audio and Navigation

The G90 features a 17-speaker premium Lexicon audio system as part of the 12.3-inch infotainment system. Edmunds rated the Genesis' system at four stars, while the Panamera only received 2.5 stars. Edmunds pointed out that that audio and navigation system found in the Panamera isn't as good as the competition. They also noticed that the controller knob doesn't always work when pushed.
