2020 Genesis G80 vs. Its Competition

2020 Genesis G80
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Genesis G80 competes with luxury sedans from all over the world and costs less than all of them.

It doesn’t offer as much variety of models as its German rivals, and it isn’t as fuel efficient as most.

However, the G80’s three engines all deliver smooth, responsive power.

The Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes E-Class all cost much more and have more cachet, but none is the bargain of the G80.

The Volvo S90 offers beautiful Scandinavian luxury with a large rear seat, while the Lincoln Continental’s relaxed take on American luxury is similar in mission to the that of the G80.
