Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Genesis G90 delivers a spacious and luxurious interior that's backed up by a blissfully hushed and smooth ride. Add a giant list of standard features that will satisfy all but the most tech-obsessed buyer and the option of a robust V8 engine, and you have all the building blocks of a traditional luxury sedan.

PROS
Refined suspension smooths out the roughest roads
All versions come fully loaded
Delivers exceptional level of luxury for far less than competitors
Lavish rear-seat accommodations on V8 models

CONS
Less refined semiautonomous systems than the competition
Limited dealer network and support
Interior materials aren't as special as those of rivals

The 2018 Genesis G90 is the modern interpretation of a luxo-barge—and it’s a great value, all things considered.

Pros
Among the best-riding cars ever
Hushed, silent operation
Strong engine choices
Roomy, luxurious interior
Impressive safety scores

Cons
Limited brand cachet
Fun to drive? Nope
Design isn’t terribly distinctive

By: 
thecarconnection.com

With elegant styling and a first-class cabin, the G90 is the Genesis brand’s first attempt at a luxury sedan. Few options are offered; instead, nearly every conceivable feature is standard. Highlights include a 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment, adaptive dampers, a head-up display, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Pros
Smooth powertrain,
posh and quiet interior,
compelling value.

Cons
Low prestige score,
what’s-your-hurry handling.

The 2018 Kia Cadenza has matured greatly, and offers exceptional room and polish.

Pros
Premium cabin
Quiet, hushed driving
Lots of storage space
Big back seat
Simple infotainment system

Cons
Evolutionary styling
Middling gas mileage
Rivals have sharper handling
Base model lacks safety tech

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Kia Cadenza ranked #3 in Large Cars. Currently the Kia Cadenza has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale cabin
Lots of features

Cons
Touch screen unresponsive at times
Below-average trunk space

By: 
usnews.com

For 2018, the Cadenza is essentially unchanged. There's only a minor rejiggering of feature content: Namely, the Luxury package now includes a panoramic sunroof and interior LED lighting.

PROS
Well-equipped for the price, especially in the base Premium trim
Vast amount of legroom allows all passengers to stretch out
Generous warranty coverage
Lots of available advanced safety features

CONS
From acceleration to handling, the Cadenza isn't much fun to drive
Trunk is smaller than rivals, and rear seats don't fold down
The ride isn't as composed as in segment leaders
Headroom is a bit tight for tall occupants (especially with sunroof)
