Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

While other luxury car manufacturers strive to balance luxury and performance, the 2019 Genesis G90 goes all in on luxury. It offers a supremely quiet and smooth ride at the expense of sporty handling.No significant changes for 2019.

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:

The G90 has comfort-first driving dynamics that won't raise the pulse of serious drivers, but it provides a plush ride; long journeys are rejuvenating rather than tedious. Even the G90's least expensive model—it's hard to call it "base"—is fitted with handsome materials and provides a comprehensive list of equipment that some other brands offer as optional extras. The well-appointed but restrained interior complements exterior styling that is handsome and upscale but avoids overtly flashy details. The harmonious G90 is a low-key luxury sedan that's high on value.While the G90 carries over unchanged for 2019, Genesis has revealed that the refreshed 2020 version will have flashier exterior styling and enhanced interior features.

Pros
Outstanding value,
quiet and cosseting ride,
smooth powertrains.

Cons
Overly relaxed handling,
lack of connectivity features,
not as flashy as the competition.

The 2018 Audi A8 ranks well among super luxury cars, thanks to its athletic performance and sumptuous interior. Where the A8 falls short is with its outdated infotainment system and small trunk.

Pros
Very comfortable seats and loads of rear-seat legroom
Refined, quiet interior
Powerful, fuel-efficient base engine

Cons
Tiny trunk for a car this size
Outdated infotainment system with some hard-to-reach controls

By:

The 2018 Audi A8 is a luxurious full-size new car that's decidedly old school. It's comfortable and quiet, but lacking new self-driving features.

Pros
Opulent interior
Standard all-wheel drive
Beautiful executive trims for rear seats
Big V-8 is fast
Long wheelbase will please a crowd

Cons
Conservative exterior
Lacking self-driving tech
V-8 is a pricey upgrade

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Overall, though, the 2018 A8 gives up little in terms of comfort, luxury and performance. The 4.0T engine, a 450-horsepower turbocharged V8, is of special note for its ability to sprint from zero to 60 mph in about 4 seconds while matching the 22 mpg combined of the standard V6.

PROS
Impeccably crafted cabin
Engines provide plenty of power with decent efficiency
Responsive steering and cornering for a big sedan
All-wheel drive is standard

CONS
Relatively small trunk
Lacks the latest tech offered by rivals and newer Audis
