Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A6 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Genesis G90 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Genesis G90 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
The Audi A6 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Genesis G90, 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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A6 is clearly a better financial choice over the Genesis G90. 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 G90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is a little narrower than the Genesis G90, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Audi A6, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Genesis G90.

Handling
The Audi A6 has about the same turning radius as the Genesis G90, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A6 is significantly less powerful than the Genesis G90. 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 G90, 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 G90. The Audi A6 has less cargo capacity than the Genesis G90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A6 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G90.
