Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon.

Convenience
The Toyota Avalon 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). Whether you pick the Genesis G70 or the Toyota Avalon, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota Avalon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G70 is about the same width as the Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Genesis G70 and the Toyota Avalon do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis G70 has less horsepower than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon. The Genesis G70 has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon.
