Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Genesis G80. The Genesis G80 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will require fewer stops at 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Genesis G80, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Genesis G80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is a little narrower than the Genesis G80, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Genesis G80.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Genesis G80 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Genesis G80, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Genesis G80. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has less cargo capacity than the Genesis G80, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
