Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Genesis G90 than in the Lexus ES 300h, due to the Genesis G90's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Genesis G90 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h.

Convenience
The Lexus ES 300h requires fewer visits to 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). The Genesis G90 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus ES 300h, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis G90 and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G90 is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Genesis G90, which is slightly longer than the Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The Genesis G90 has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 300h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G90 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G90 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G90 and the Lexus ES 300h. The Genesis G90 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus ES 300h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G90 than that of the Lexus ES 300h.
