2014 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2014 Nissan Maxima 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 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Genesis as you will with the Nissan Maxima, 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). The Hyundai Genesis is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Maxima. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Hyundai Genesis is much higher than that for the Nissan Maxima.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Genesis is a little wider than the Nissan Maxima, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Nissan Maxima.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Genesis is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Maxima.

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

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