Considering your luxury sedan options in the Pensacola area but unsure of what the perfect model for you is? Many drivers find themselves comparing the new Genesis vs. BMW lineups for their renowned performance, premium interiors, and comparable pricing. However, in terms of luxury sedans, the 2020 Genesis G80 vs. BMW 3 Series comparison reveals the Genesis has a much stronger selection when mpg, dimensions, and price are all factored together. Take a closer look below, with Allen Turner Genesis.

Genesis vs. BMW: Sedan Pricing and Configurations

When you look at the Genesis vs. BMW spec sheets for the G80 vs. 3 Series, the difference in starting price is negligible, considering the Genesis provides more spacious dimensions, more impressive standard features, comparable mpg, and more horsepower in its standard trim. 

We'll discuss those differences below, but it should also be noted that throughout the range of configurations, the BMW 3 Series and Genesis G80 price stay neck-and-neck. The 2020 BMW M340i xDrive, the highest trim level in 3 Series lineup, whose price starts at $56,000 MSRP, while the fully-loaded 2020 Genesis G80 starts at 60,000 MSRP. Again, the difference represents the chasm of a divide between the superior performance the G80 offers. 

Genesis G80 vs. BMW 3 Series: Performance 

Both luxury vehicles earn their claim to sport-tuning and powerful engineering. However, the range of new Genesis G80 engine options is simply not comparable to the BMW 3 Series.

2020 Genesis G80

  • Standard Engine: 3.8L V6 engine with 311 hp
  • Engine Upgrade: 5.0L V8 engine capable of 420 hp

2020 BMW 3 Series

  • Standard Engine: 2.0L I-4 engine with 248 hp
  • Engine Upgrade: 3.0L I-6 TwinPower Turbo capable of 382 hp

With comparable fuel economy mpg specifications, the overwhelming power of the 2020 Genesis G80 makes it a vastly superior choice for Fort Walton touring. 

Genesis G80 vs. BMW 3 Series: Dimensions and Design

Luxury doesn't take a back seat in either of these exceptional sedans, but if it did, it would certainly be more relaxed in the spacious 2020 Genesis G80 dimensions. In the Genesis vs. BMW comparison, the significant difference in passenger volume means more comfort for those in the Genesis G80. See below for a closer look:

2020 Genesis G80

  • Front Head Room (inches): 41.1
  • Front Leg Room (inches): 45.7
  • Front Shoulder Room (inches): 58.3
  • Second Row Head Room (inches): 38.2
  • Second Row Shoulder Room (inches): 57.1

2020 BMW 3 Series

  • Front Head Room (inches): 38.7
  • Front Leg Room (inches): 42
  • Front Shoulder Room (inches): 56
  • Second Row Head Room (inches): 37.6
  • Second Row Shoulder Room (inches): 54.6

107.7 cubic feet of passenger volume in the 2020 Genesis G80 is simply impressive. While the 2020 BMW 3 Series does not list a passenger volume, we can surmise that it is significantly lower than the G80 in the Genesis vs. BMW comparison as G80 offers more room in every category, which makes listening to its larger and more powerful surround-sound system even more enjoyable.
