2016 Ford Taurus vs. 2016 Hyundai Genesis Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Taurus than the Hyundai Genesis. The Hyundai Genesis will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Taurus.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Taurus as you will with the Hyundai Genesis, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Taurus will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Genesis. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Taurus will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Hyundai Genesis.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Taurus is much wider than the Hyundai Genesis, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Taurus, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Genesis.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Taurus doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Genesis.

Handling
The Ford Taurus has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Genesis, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Taurus has less horsepower than the Hyundai Genesis, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Taurus and the Hyundai Genesis. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Taurus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Hyundai Genesis.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Taurus is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Genesis.
