2019 Genesis G80 vs. Its Competition

2019 Genesis G80
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Genesis G80 undercuts its German rivals by thousands, if not tens of thousands, when comparably equipped.

Sure, its lineup doesn’t offer the breadth of the Mercedes E-Class or BMW 5-series, but most drivers will find a lot to like in the Genesis’ three powertrains.

The Audi A6 is nearly as subtle as the G80, but again costs far more with similar features.

The Volvo S90 wowed us when it debuted a few years ago, and a recent update gave it massive rear-seat space.

Lincoln’s Continental is a stylish option that’s often discounted.
