Compare the 2017 Genesis G80 vs Lexus GS 350

2017 Genesis G80 vs Lexus GS 350 

Luxury vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and Brent and Ferry Pass drivers will find themselves comparing the 2017 Genesis G80 vs the 2017 Lexus GS 350. Although both are attractive, the Genesis is the better choice, and here's why:


Ferry Pass drivers appreciate having enough space to bring everyone along for the ride. When you are looking between the Genesis G80 and the Lexus GS 350, you'll find the Genesis provides you with more interior space for your passengers. Sure, both vehicles allow you to seat up to five passengers, but your passengers will have 107 cubic feet of space in the Genesis compared to only 99 cubic feet of space in the Lexus. When you don't want to be cramped on the Brent roads, be sure to choose the G80.


Regardless of where you go in Pensacola, you want to be sure you get there with the right type of power under your hood. The 2017 Genesis G80 provides you with two engine options. The standard 3.8L engine delivers 311 hp and 293 lb-ft of torque. You can also upgrade to the 5.0L V8 engine if you're looking for more power.

If you instead opt for the Lexus, you'll find that performance isn't as attractive. This model only comes with one engine, the standard 3.5L V6. This version will get you 311 hp like the Genesis, but it will only snag 280 lb-ft of torque, making it less superior.


You and your passengers are the most precious cargo, which means that your vehicle of choice needs to work hard to keep you safe throughout Brent. The 2017 Genesis G80 comes with plenty of safety features, including automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist and lane departure warning, high beam assist, pre-safety seatbelt, nine airbags, smart cruise control with start/stop capability, electronic parking brake with automatic vehicle hold, and an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation system and rearview camera.

The 2017 Lexus GS 350 has a few safety features, such as a pre-collision system and lane departure alert, but it doesn't come with the full suite of features like the G80.


When picking a new sedan, you want to be sure you're choosing one you can rely on. The Genesis G80 offers an extensive warranty package. This includes:

  • 3 years/36,000 miles complimentary scheduled maintenance
  • 3 years/36,000 miles complimentary valet service
  • 3 years complimentary Genesis Connected services
  • 3 years complimentary SiriusXM and Travel Link
  • 3 years complimentary Map Care
  • Roadside assistance and concierge service

The warranty on the Lexus doesn't even come close.
