Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 300h than the Genesis G80, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h.

Convenience
The Lexus ES 300h requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Genesis G80, 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). The Genesis G80 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus ES 300h. 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 G80 and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis G80 is a little wider than the Lexus ES 300h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Genesis G80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 300h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G80 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has a smaller turning radius than the Lexus ES 300h, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis G80 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Genesis G80 and the Lexus ES 300h. The Genesis G80 has less cargo capacity than the Lexus ES 300h, 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 G80 than that of the Lexus ES 300h.
