Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Genesis G70 than in the Subaru WRX STI, due to the Genesis G70's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Genesis G70 and the Subaru WRX STI in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Genesis G70 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru WRX STI, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Subaru WRX STI. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Genesis G70 is much higher than that for the Subaru WRX STI.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G70 is much wider than the Subaru WRX STI, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Genesis G70 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru WRX STI.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Genesis G70 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru WRX STI.

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

Performance
The Genesis G70 has less horsepower than the Subaru WRX STI, 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 Subaru WRX STI. The Genesis G70 has less cargo capacity than the Subaru WRX STI, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G70 than that of the Subaru WRX STI.
