Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo S90 than the Genesis G90, 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 Volvo S90.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis G90 as you will with the Volvo S90, 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). The Genesis G90 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S90, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S90.

Dimensions
The Genesis G90 is a little wider than the Volvo S90, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Volvo S90.

Handling
The Genesis G90 has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S90, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G90 is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S90.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G90 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S90.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G90 and the Volvo S90. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Genesis G90 as you will in the Volvo S90.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G90 than that of the Volvo S90.
