Pensacola drivers know a good thing when they see it, which is why the Genesis lineup has been flying off the lot here at Allen Turner Genesis. But between the 2019 Genesis vs. G80, which model is right for your particular needs? These two vehicles represent the height of luxury sedans, but each presents a slightly different driving experience and personality. Get to know the Genesis G70 and G80 in depth below, and start thinking ahead to your test drive!

Genesis G70 Specs

The Genesis G70 is the newer vehicle of the two, and it’s already causing quite a stir with Fort Walton and Mobile drivers. Its price range is a little more cost-effective than many luxury options on the market, and you’ll get quite a driving experience and well-equipped interior for that modest cost. The smaller of the two models, the G70 length is about a foot less than the G80, which contributes to its lively handling and agile performance. It’s no wonder this dynamo earned the 2019 North American Car of the Year award! Check out the impressive performance feats:

  • Base Horsepower: 252 hp
  • Max Horsepower: 365 hp
  • Max Fuel Economy: 22 city/30 highway mpg

Genesis G80 Specs

The 2019 Genesis G80 is the larger of the two, which creates a more spacious interior with plenty of room to stretch out. Of course, you’ll enjoy high-tech amenities and sophisticated style in your G80, but this vehicle also racked up the awards for superior safety: IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and 5-Star NHTSA Overall Rating. And though its $42,050* MSRP is slightly higher than the G70, the G80 also earned the ALG Highest Predicted Residual Value vehicle award from J.D. Power. It’s also got the edge on performance, especially when you consider the Genesis G70 vs G80 Sport:

  • Base Horsepower: 311 hp
  • Max Horsepower: 420 hp
  • Max Fuel Economy: 18 city/26 highway mpg
