Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G90 than the BMW 540, 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 540.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 540 as you will with the Genesis G90, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 540 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 540 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Genesis G90.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 540 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 540 is slightly shorter than the Genesis G90, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The BMW 540 has about the same turning radius as the Genesis G90, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 540 has less horsepower than the Genesis G90, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 540 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Genesis G90.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Genesis G90. The BMW 540 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 540 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G90.
