2018 Genesis G80 vs. Its Competition

2018 Genesis G80 Sport

The Lincoln Continental places a similar emphasis on luxury at all costs, with an extensive range of standard and optional extras, but a much larger backseat.

The Cadillac CTS is big and comfortable, but it’s inarguably more dynamic while boasting a more modern look.

The BMW 5-Series is a star in this class, offering a perfect blend of performance and comfort.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a technological marvel with a trick semi-autonomous system Genesis can’t match (yet).

The Audi A6 remains one of the most elegant offerings in the segment, but offers a broader range of customization for shoppers.

Quick Specs
8.3
Plush, safe, and well-equipped, the 2018 Genesis G80 remains a pure luxury sedan, even as rivals get increasingly sporty.
7.0
The 2018 Audi S6 stands with an impressive hand: quality interior, great performance, functional shape. It's possible to find better examples from other cars, but they all cost significantly more.
7.8
The 2018 BMW 5-Series expands the sedan's already-excellent lineup to include an efficient plug-in hybrid and an uber-quick V-8.
7.5
The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V scorches the earth, and leaves the E63 and RS7 with some burn marks.
7.7
We’re not fans of mismatches, but the 2018 Lincoln Continental’s lithe road manners and retro theming pair awfully well.
8.3
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class goes to excess--the right kinds of excess--to preserve its best-of status.
