Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 540 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Genesis G80. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 540.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 540 as you will with the Genesis G80, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW 540 is somewhat more expensive than the Genesis G80. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 540 and the Genesis G80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 540 is a little narrower than the Genesis G80, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 540 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Genesis G80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 540 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Genesis G80.

Handling
The BMW 540 has a larger turning radius than the Genesis G80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 540 has less horsepower than the Genesis G80, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Genesis G80. The BMW 540 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Genesis G80.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 540 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G80.
