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

Convenience

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Genesis transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Maxima.
