Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G70 than the Nissan Maxima. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Genesis G70, drivers may find the Nissan Maxima a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Nissan Maxima 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Maxima.

Dimensions
The Genesis G70 is about the same width as the Nissan Maxima. The Genesis G70 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Maxima, which may make it easier to park.

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 Nissan Maxima.
