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 G80 than the Kia Stinger. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Stinger.

Convenience
With the Genesis G80 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, 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 G80 is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Stinger.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G80 is much wider than the Kia Stinger, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Genesis G80, which is slightly longer than the Kia Stinger.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Stinger, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis G80 has less horsepower than the Kia Stinger, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Genesis G80 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Stinger.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G80 and the Kia Stinger.
