Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis G70 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S60 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 Volvo S60.

Convenience
The Volvo S60 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Genesis G70 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo S60. 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 Volvo S60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G70 is about the same width as the Volvo S60. When looking at overall length, the Genesis G70 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Genesis G70 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Genesis G70 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S60, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G70 is significantly less powerful than the Volvo S60. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G70 and the Volvo S60. The Genesis G70 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S60, 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 Volvo S60.
