Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura TLX offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Genesis G70 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Genesis G70 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TLX.

Convenience
The Acura TLX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Genesis G70, making it more convenient to drive.

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 TLX or the Genesis G70, 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 TLX and the Genesis G70 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TLX is much wider than the Genesis G70, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura TLX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Genesis G70.

Handling
The Acura TLX has a larger turning radius than the Genesis G70, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TLX is significantly less powerful than the Genesis G70. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Acura TLX has much less torque than the Genesis G70, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TLX and the Genesis G70. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Acura TLX will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Genesis G70.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Acura TLX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G70.
