Need a little help telling these two models apart and selecting your perfect fit? We're here with the inside scoop.

A Side-By-Side Look at the Genesis G70 vs. the Genesis G80

  • Size. The most obvious difference between these two cars is their size. As mentioned, the G80 is midsize, while the G70 is a compact car. This means that the Genesis G80 is around 12 inches longer and 2 inches taller than the G70, and it has a wider wheelbase as well.
  • Cargo space. Both sedans give drivers a useful and secure cargo hold in the form of a locking trunk that keeps cargo out of sight for passerby. However, as the larger of the two models, the G80 has a larger trunk capacity than the G70, with the G80 trunk space measuring around 13.1 cubic feet and the G70 coming in around 10 cubic feet. Both cars have multiple storage solution options throughout the cabin for smaller objects.
  • Passenger space. As the larger car, the Genesis G80 also has a little more room to stretch out in on the inside. However, both cars offer a ride that's comfortable and retains coziness even on long road trips. Its larger dimensions mean the G80 has more shoulder space and rear seat legroom, although the G70 offers nearly identical amounts of headroom and front seat legroom.
  • Power. Both of these sedans give drivers a choice of turbocharged engines to choose from, including a turbocharged four-cylinder and an upgraded turbo V6, depending on the trim level you select. But the larger Genesis G80 requires a more-powerful acceleration and performance, which means it has a higher power output than the G70.
  • Technology. While both of these world-class cars have a comprehensive menu of standard amenities, Washington DC drivers who choose the Genesis G80 will find more of the features they like listed as standard equipment. For example, while both cars have heated front seats, a touchscreen infotainment system, and smartphone integration, the G80 also adds ambient interior lighting and heated rear seats as standard equipment.
  • Safety. As with the tech features before this, the Genesis G80 also has a few extra safety features standard that are listed as optional for the smaller car. These include blind-spot intervention (as opposed to blind-spot monitoring, which both cars get standard) and parking sensors, among others.
