Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis G70 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Genesis G70 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 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). Based on MSRP, the Genesis G70 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis G70 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Genesis G70 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. The Genesis G70 has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
