Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis G80 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 300h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. 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.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G80 is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Genesis G80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus ES 300h.
