Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Genesis G80 than in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis G80 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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). Whether you pick the Genesis G80 or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G80 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. When looking at overall length, the Genesis G80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G80 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G80 than that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
