Each year, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sets the standard for comfort and innovation in the full-size executive sedan class. But when an all-new, clean-sheet redesign arrives, it's an even bigger deal! That means Mercedes-Benz has rebuilt the S-Class from the ground up to support a more spacious cabin, more sophisticated suspension, more powerful engines and more safety equipment than ever before. It all adds up to so much more than you can get from wannabe rivals like the 2021 Genesis G90. Find out more in the head-to-head comparison below.
The Genesis brand is a newcomer in the world of luxury cars, and it hasn't had time to build the reputation and brand image that Mercedes-Benz has cultivated over decades of design and innovation. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class also offers luxury, comfort and prestige that you won't find on the 2021 Genesis G90. For instance, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers massaging seats both up front and in the rear. For 2021, Mercedes-Benz has further enhanced functionality for a more relaxing or therapeutic massage. Massaging seats aren't available on the 2021 Genesis G90.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is renowned in the automotive world for cutting-edge technology. The all-new 2021 model year is no exception. Mercedes-Benz has created a more modern, more streamlined interior with up to five large screens. In the center stack, you also get a crystal-clear, responsive OLED touchscreen. The 2021 Genesis G90 provides a more typical LCD screen. You can also get a spectacular 3D digital gauge cluster -- no 3D glasses required. There's nothing quite like this available on the 2021 Genesis G90.
And for the finest audio quality, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers an available Burmester® High-End 4D Surround Sound system with more speakers and more sonic power and clarity than anything you'll find on the 2021 Genesis G90.
Whether it's more power and quickness you're after or just a comfortable, confident cruise, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the superior choice. It begins under the hood with the engine. Entry-level 2021 Genesis G90 models feature a twin-turbocharged V6 engine making just 365 horsepower. By contrast, in the new S-Class, you get a turbocharged inline-six engine making 429 horsepower as standard! And since it's an inline engine, it provides a more robust exhaust rumble and smoother power delivery.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class also comes standard with 4MATIC all-wheel drive; all-wheel drive will cost you extra on the 2021 Genesis G90. Best of all, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class provides such a premium ride it seems to be floating on air. That's because it is -- the standard adaptive air suspension glosses over rough pavement and bumps in the road. In the 2021 Genesis G90, you get a standard adaptive suspension, but it has a more traditional steel spring design, which means the S-Class is even more luxurious on the road.
But none of this matters more than your safety on today's hectic roads. Both the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Genesis G90 come standard with driver assist technology, including forward collision avoidance, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping assistance, a surround-view camera and a whole lot more. But there are still many exclusive safety features to the S-Class.
The 2021 Genesis G90 even comes with a standard head-up display -- but it's a small region of the windshield. The new Augmented Reality Head-Up Display available on the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class projects information across practically the entire windshield. Directional arrows and alerts are virtually projected on the road ahead. So your eyes are always looking forward and your attention is where it ought to be. The S-Class also offers rear passenger frontal airbags and PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side technology to keep passengers away from the doors in the event of a side impact collision. These safety exclusives can't be found on the 2021 Genesis G90 at all.
The all-new 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is one of the most anticipated new Mercedes-Benz model releases ever. We're excited to offer the latest in luxury, technology and safety for the executive car class at Mercedes-Benz Of Temecula, serving Wildomar and Lake Elsinore, CA. With more features, more power and more technology from rival brands such as Genesis, it's clear that Mercedes-Benz has no equal. Find out more during a test drive.
