You have a fair point. The RX is the #1 seller with a lot of brand loyalty. But compared to the German makes I wouldn't be surprised if the RX will be cross shopped more with the GV80.
I'd like to think the average consumer would realize the RX is a front wheel drive based econo car on stilts and the Genesis is at least rwd based. But I know they won't.
