Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G80 than the BMW 540, 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 BMW 540.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 540 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 BMW 540 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. In this case, the BMW 540 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Genesis G80.

Handling
The BMW 540 has a larger turning radius than the Genesis G80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Powertrain

Utility
