Compare The 2018 Genesis G90 vs The 2018 Acura RLX in Danbury, CT

The 2018 Genesis G90 and the Acura RLX both claim that they are a luxury sedan that doesn't compromise performance, but only one follows through on those promises.

What does the Genesis G90 give Carmel drivers that the Acura RLX can't?

Compare Power and Performance

Both models have two engine options, but the 2018 Genesis G90 comes standard with more power than the best Acura RLX engine.

  • The standard 3.3-liter V6 of the G90 packs 376 pound-feet of torque, easily besting the 341 pound-feet output of the Acura RLX.
  • New Milford drivers will feel the power of the Genesis G90 at lower engine speeds, so you don't have to redline the engine to get the most out of it.
  • The 5.0-liter V8 available in the G90 gives you by far the most amount of power.

Compare Technology and Safety

Convenience and protection are standard in every Genesis G90 because we know that an enjoyable drive is more than just power.

  • The G90 uses sound and vibration-cancelling technology throughout the car, such as the hollow 19-inch alloy wheels, to reduce the outside din when driving in Waterbury. The Acura RLX does not use these technologies.
  • Driver-assist safety features come standard on both the Genesis G90 and Acura RLX, but the G90 offers a more comprehensive package. Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, pre-active seatbelt, and driver attention alert are some of the G90's standard features not found in the Acura RLX.
  • On top of the extra features, the G90 has more airbags and a more durable frame than the RLX.

Compare Special Options and Trims

There are four Genesis G90 trims while the Acura RLX has two options. Fairfield drivers have a greater range of options with the G90.

Other special options for the Genesis G90 that you won't find in the Acura RLX include:

  • A 22-way adjustable driver's seat
  • Heated and ventilated seats throughout the cabin
  • Two hi-definition monitors for your back seat passengers.
  • Seat memory systems for each front and rear outboard seat.
