The 2020 Genesis G90 is a full-size luxury sedan that provides the perfect combination of comfort and performance. According to Gladwyne Genesis, buyers appreciate the G90's exceptional ride, its long list of features that come standard, and its value for the money.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class is a luxury sedan that competes with the Genesis G90. If you've been considering buying either model, read on and see how these two cars stack up against each other.

The 2020 Genesis G90 is more affordable than the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-class. The G90 has a starting Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $72,200. That's a lot less than the $94,250 starting MSRP of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Keep in mind that the MSRP isn't the actual price you'll pay at a dealership like the Gladwyne Genesis dealer. We use the MSRP as a way to compare the prices of the two vehicles.

Interior Space
One of the advantages of owning a full-size luxury sedan is the generous amount of space the driver and passengers can enjoy. The Genesis G90 has an impressive 46.3 inches of front legroom. That's significantly more space than the Mercedes-Benz S-class, which only has 41.4 inches. Drivers who need space in the trunk to carry luggage or other items will appreciate the Genesis G90, which has a full 15.7 cubic feet of space to store cargo. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has just 12.3 cubic feet of trunk space.

Convenience Features
One reason to select a luxury car is the exceptional convenience features that come standard. Either sedan provides a number of popular convenience features. The Genesis G90 comes with a windshield wiper de-icer and speed-sensitive wipers. The G90's remote fuel door release makes stops at the gas station much easier. You may be surprised to learn that these conveniences aren't available in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Safety is an important consideration when selecting a new vehicle. The IIHS has yet to test the 2020 Genesis G90. However, the 2019 G90, which is essentially the same vehicle as the 2020 model, received the highest marks of Good in all crash tests. In addition, the G90 was named a 2019 Safety Pick+, the organization's top safety designation. Luxury cars aren't usually crash tested by the IIHS unless the automaker specifically pays for the test. The last time the Mercedes-Benz S-Class was crash tested was back in 2011, so its crashworthiness is unknown.

Both of these vehicles provide excellent impact protection. But the 2020 Genesis G90 comes standard with more driver-assistance technologies, including blind-spot warning, driver attention warning, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. If you'd like these valuable safety features on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you must buy an option package.


A vehicle's warranty is a sign that an automaker stands behind its products. Every Genesis sedan comes with the automotive industry's best warranty. The 2020 Genesis G90 gets a basic 5-year/60,000-mile warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. By contrast, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class only gets a 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and a 4-year/50,000-mile powertrain warranty. Buyers who choose the 2020 Genesis G90 will certainly get more peace of mind.

Our Final Word

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a worthy contender, but the 2020 Genesis G90 ultimately comes out the winner of this competition. The G90 is a more affordably priced, provides conveniences you won't find in the S-Class, and has more room for passengers.
