    The wood trim on the G90 is so glossy that it has a fake-looking sheen to it (the fake wood trim in the Cadenza actually looks better in videos).
    Yeah but if you look at the BMW 7 series, the Audi A8, even the Lexus LS all have glossy wood as well (at least in some packages). Perhaps the difference is that it isn't as thick on the other vehicles.

    I find it interesting that reviewers come to the conclusion that glossy wood looks fake. This dig usually only gets thrown at value brands. Lexus, BMW, Mercedes and Audi have had glossy wood for years, and rarely is it called fake.

    I can also recall one early G90 review that flat out came to the conclusion that the wood was fake. The only thing that was fake, was the news!

    For a car that could potentially be used as a commercial limousine or even a high end Uber ride, the coated wood is easier to maintain than the open pore one.

    There's glossy wood and there's glossy wood that for whatever reason ends up looking like the not real thing.

    I've got burled walnut speakers that have a glossy finish which don't take away from the look of the wood.

    One could easily say the same for the S Class (the most popular luxury sedan for the high-end black car/livery fleet in NYC is the S Class).

    At the very least, Hyundai should have offered a matte-finish option.

    I have been in BM's and Audis that had fake looking wood. Not sure if it was real, but it appeared to be photo print on metal.
