    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.

    MotoMan 5.0 First Drive.

    MotoMan has reviewed the 3.3TT prior, but what is of note in this review is MotoMan describing how maneuverable the G90 5.0 is for a large, heavy sedan.

    I question how someone can tell the difference between the v8 and v6 with out having both right there and testing both within the same hour. All you can really do is use accelerometers for this debate.

    It reminds me of these taste tests....Coke vs. Pepsi. I was in a taste test once and only one of about 15 were able to tell the difference between the two. So people give their senses way too much credit.

    When he clicks into Sport mode, there is a huge difference! The acceleration and shifting response difference is insane. He completely missed that! Also talking about massage seats? Am I missing something in my Ultimate?

    Thanks for this post...there are not many if any that do the comparison, and it seems the majority are the B6.

    They need to take those awful Continental Conti-Pro Contact tires off that car and put Michelins on it. Those Conti-pros are garbage!!! Like putting ketchup on a Filet Mignon. Any thoughts?

    Alex on Autos notes a fairly large gap in 0-60 time btwn the 3.3TT and 5.0 G80 - so, likely the same for the G90.


    Edmunds long-term test of the G90.
