2015 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Hyundai Genesis than in the Lexus GS 350, due to the Hyundai Genesis's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Hyundai Genesis will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Genesis as you will with the Lexus GS 350, 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 Hyundai Genesis will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GS 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Genesis will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus GS 350.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Genesis is much wider than the Lexus GS 350, 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 Hyundai Genesis, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Genesis transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Hyundai Genesis and the Lexus GS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Genesis and the Lexus GS 350. The Hyundai Genesis has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus GS 350.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Genesis than that of the Lexus GS 350.
