Compare Genesis and Audi to Find the Best Brand for Your Gaithersburg Commute

When shopping for a new luxury vehicle to add to your Arlington, VA driveway, the options may feel overwhelming at first. That's where comparing and contrasting comes in. If you've been considering purchasing or leasing a new Genesis model but find yourself debating between other popular luxury carmakers such as Audi, now's the time to do some research and reveal the real winner for your lifestyle. Let's compare Genesis and Audi today.

Technology Offerings

Technology is often one of the most important things to modern-day drivers. You'll find that Genesis vehicles take things a step further for a truly unique, user-friendly, yet futuristic tech experience. For example:

  • Both Audi and Genesis offer a large center screen for which to control smartphone integration, navigation, and all of the other standard perks most luxury vehicles have these days. However, Audi utilizes a dual 12.3-inch stacked screen system, placing all of your controls in the digital sphere. Genesis utilizes a single 14.5-inch center infotainment system with a user-friendly interface and an analog cluster of controls for temperature and comfort features to minimize glitches in the realm of comfort.
  • Audi offers parking assistance when you're inside your vehicle, but Genesis vehicles offer a Remote Parking Assist, which allows you to park your car while you walk alongside it.
  • The digital gauge cluster in Genesis models is the same size-12.3-inches-as it is in many Audi models, but features 3D haptics for a dynamic, activated look that you won't find in the Audi interface.


There's no doubt about it: Genesis models are known for their exceptional performance capabilities. Explore where the Genesis lineup succeeds when compared to Audi:

  • Genesis vehicles are known for their spectrum of options, offering shoppers a choice between rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, multiple engine options that go into the V6 realm, and both manual and automatic transmission options. Meanwhile, Audi vehicles come pretty pre-packaged in terms of performance, offering no choice but their quattro® all-wheel drivetrain and no manual transmission choices across the entire lineup.
  • Genesis vehicles that have gone head-to-head with Audi models continually outperform. For example, recent models of the Genesis G70 offer drivers a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine that produces 252-horsepower compared to the Audi model's mere 188-horsepower. Upgrade to the turbocharged V6 from Genesis for even more power of 260-horsepower.

Price Point

Genesis can do what many other luxury brands cannot and offer all these state-of-the-art features and impeccable performance at a price point that you'll jump for. In fact, models like the Genesis G80 and Genesis G70 are known as some of the most affordable midsized luxury vehicles on the roadways and fall several thousand dollars under the Audi prince points, with more features. Every Genesis model features a more robust suite of features for less than that of its Audi segment equivalent at the base level.
