Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G80 than the Acura TLX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TLX.

Convenience
With the Genesis G80 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Acura TLX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Acura TLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Genesis G80. 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 G80 have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Performance
The Acura TLX has less horsepower than the Genesis G80, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Genesis G80.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TLX and the Genesis G80. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura TLX as you will in the Genesis G80.

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