Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G90 than the BMW 530, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Genesis G90 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 530.

Convenience
The BMW 530 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Genesis G90, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the BMW 530 is clearly a better financial choice over the Genesis G90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW 530 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Genesis G90.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 530 is much slimmer than the Genesis G90, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 530 is slightly shorter than the Genesis G90, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The BMW 530 has about the same turning radius as the Genesis G90, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 530 is significantly less powerful than the Genesis G90. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The BMW 530 has much less torque than the Genesis G90, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 530 and the Genesis G90. The BMW 530 has less cargo capacity than the Genesis G90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 530 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G90.
