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 Volvo S60. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S60.

Convenience
The Genesis G80 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S60, 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 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 G80 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis G80 is much wider than the Volvo S60, 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 Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G80 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S60.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo S60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis G80 has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, 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 G80 and the Volvo S60. The Genesis G80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis G80 than that of the Volvo S60.
