Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Stinger than the Genesis G70, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Stinger, the Genesis G70 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis G70 as you will with the Kia Stinger, 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). Whether you pick the Genesis G70 or the Kia Stinger, 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 Stinger have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G70 is a little narrower than the Kia Stinger, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Genesis G70 is slightly shorter than the Kia Stinger, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has about the same turning radius as the Kia Stinger, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Genesis G70 and the Kia Stinger.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Genesis G70 and the Kia Stinger do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G70 and the Kia Stinger.

Warranty
The Genesis G70 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Stinger.
