2017 Genesis G80 vs. Its Competition

2017 Genesis G80
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Genesis G80 doesn't have the brand cachet—or history—of some of its European rivals, but it does have a much more attractive pricetag.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is all new this year, and very good, and features some of the more advanced technology available on cars today—for a very high price.

The BMW 5-Series is one of our favorites in the segment and manages to get right some of the special-ness that the Genesis lacks for now.

Audi's A6 is a popular pick for all-wheel drive needs, and its relatively fuel efficient compared to the all-wheel-drive version of the G80.

The CTS may be the sportiest in its class, and we hear there'll be a performance G80 at some point, but highly doubt that it'll touch the CTS-V.
