Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G70 than the Nissan Maxima. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Genesis G70, drivers may find the Nissan Maxima a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

With the Nissan Maxima you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Genesis G70, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Genesis G70 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Maxima.

The Genesis G70 is about the same width as the Nissan Maxima. The Genesis G70 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Maxima, which may make it easier to park.

The Genesis G70 has less horsepower than the Nissan Maxima, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

With similar torque, the Genesis G70 and the Nissan Maxima do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G70 and the Nissan Maxima.
