  1. For affordable entry level luxury I would have no problem recommending the Genesis G70 (or Kia Telluride),
    but for top end luxury which is still relatively attainable the Lexus 600h is king of the hill.

    The G90 is rather vulgar-looking inside and out, the G80 is attractively styled and a very good value and ultimately pointless, but the G70 is the real standout in the Genesis lineup — a more powerful, better handling and more luxuriously appointed Kia Stinger GT for about the same money.
