Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Genesis G80 than in the Volvo S90, due to the Genesis G80's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S90.

Convenience
The Genesis G80 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S90, 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). Whether you pick the Genesis G80 or the Volvo S90, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 S90.

Dimensions
The Genesis G80 is a little wider than the Volvo S90, 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 Volvo S90.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Genesis G80 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volvo S90.

Handling
The Genesis G80 has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S90, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis G80 has less horsepower than the Volvo S90, 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 S90. The Genesis G80 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S90, 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 Volvo S90.
