Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis G70 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Genesis G70 and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz A-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Genesis G70, due to its tank size and 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 Genesis G70 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, 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 Genesis G70 and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G70 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Genesis G70, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G70 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G70 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G70 and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G70 than that of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
