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 740 than the Genesis G80. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 740.

Convenience
The BMW 740 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Genesis G80, 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). The BMW 740 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Genesis G80, 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. The BMW 740 and the Genesis G80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 740 is about the same width as the Genesis G80. If you go with the BMW 740, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Genesis G80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 740 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Genesis G80.

Handling
The BMW 740 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Genesis G80, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 740 has less horsepower than the Genesis G80, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 740 and the Genesis G80. The BMW 740 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Genesis G80.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 740 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G80.
