Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Genesis G80 than in the Lexus GS 350, due to the Genesis G80's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis G80 as you will with the Lexus GS 350, 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 Genesis G80 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis G80 and the Lexus GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G80 is much wider than the Lexus GS 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Genesis G80, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G80 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G80 is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus GS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G80 and the Lexus GS 350. The Genesis G80 has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus GS 350, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G80 than that of the Lexus GS 350.
