2015 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2015 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Genesis offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S80 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Genesis will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Genesis as you will with the Volvo S80, 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 Volvo S80. 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 and the Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Genesis is about the same width as the Volvo S80. 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 Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Genesis doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Genesis is somewhat more powerful than the Volvo S80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Genesis and the Volvo S80. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Hyundai Genesis as you will in the Volvo S80.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Genesis than that of the Volvo S80.
