Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A6 than the Genesis G70. The Genesis G70 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
With the Audi A6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Genesis G70, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive than the Genesis G70. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A6 and the Genesis G70 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A6 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 Audi A6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Genesis G70.

Handling
The Audi A6 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 Audi A6 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 Audi A6 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 Audi A6 and the Genesis G70. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A6 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Genesis G70.
