Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the Genesis G80. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RLX as you will with the Genesis G80, 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). Whether you pick the Acura RLX or the Genesis G80, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Genesis G80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is about the same width as the Genesis G80. When looking at overall length, the Acura RLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Genesis G80.

Drivetrain
The Acura RLX has much less torque than the Genesis G80, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a significantly larger turning radius than the Genesis G80, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RLX has less horsepower than the Genesis G80, 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 Acura RLX and the Genesis G80. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura RLX as you will in the Genesis G80.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Acura RLX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G80.
