  • Height-adjustable suspension: The Lexus features a height-adjustable suspension system that enables you to keep ride height level when carrying a heavy load and raise ride height when driving off the pavement. The Genesis does not have this feature.

Luxury & Convenience

The 2019 Lexus LS 500 and the 2019 Genesis G90 both offer a long list of comfort and convenience features to give drivers and passengers a pleasant ride. However, the Lexus has a number of well-thought-out features that give it a slight upper hand in this department, such as:

  • Windows you can control from the outside: If you leave the windows on your Lexus LS 500 open, you can close them at the outside door handle or with the keyless remote. On a hot day, you can reduce heat in the cabin by opening the windows from outside the car. You cannot open or close the windows on the Genesis G90 from outside the car.
  • Optional 115-volt AC outlet: The LS 500 also comes with an available 115-volt AC outlet that allows you to run household appliances or recharge a laptop without using a special adapter. The G90 does not feature a house-current electrical outlet.
