Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 540 than the Genesis G70. The Genesis G70 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 540.

Convenience
With the BMW 540 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 BMW 540 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Genesis G70, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW 540 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Genesis G70.

Dimensions
The BMW 540 is about the same width as the Genesis G70. If you go with the BMW 540, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Genesis G70.

Handling
The BMW 540 has a larger turning radius than the Genesis G70, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 540 has less horsepower than the Genesis G70, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 540 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Genesis G70.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Genesis G70. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 540 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Genesis G70.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 540 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G70.
