Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-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). Based on MSRP, the Genesis G70 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G70 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Genesis G70, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing equal maneuverability 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 E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
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 E-Class.

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 E-Class. The Genesis G70 has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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