Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Cadenza than the Genesis G70, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Genesis G70.

Convenience
The Kia Cadenza requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Genesis G70, 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). Whether you pick the Genesis G70 or the Kia Cadenza, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis G70 and the Kia Cadenza have similar Destination Charges.

Handling
