Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A6 than in the Genesis G80, due to the Audi A6's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A6 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). The Audi A6 is somewhat more expensive 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 Audi A6 and the Genesis G80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A6 is much slimmer than the Genesis G80, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Audi A6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Genesis G80.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a larger turning radius than the Genesis G80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A6 has less horsepower than the Genesis G80, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A6 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 Audi A6 and the Genesis G80. The Audi A6 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Genesis G80.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A6 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G80.
