Genesis G70 or Genesis G80 - Which Luxury Car Best Suits Clearwater Drivers?

You know that Genesis makes posh luxury cars, but do you know which sedan suits you best? Genesis of Clearwater has a full line of new Genesis vehicles for sale near Largo, FL. We've thrown together this comparison of the new Genesis G70 and the new Genesis G80 to help St. Petersburg drivers decide which car is better for them.

Genesis G70 vs. Genesis G80


The Genesis G80 is about a foot longer than the G70, so you can expect it to have a smoother ride. The Genesis G70's smaller size and tight turn radius make it a bit easier to park and navigate through tight spaces in Tampa. Other size benefits include:

  • Cargo Space: You can fit more suitcases or shopping bags in the Genesis G80, which has 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space. The Genesis G70 has a 10.5-cubic-foot trunk.
  • Passenger Room: You and your passengers will have more wiggle room in the Genesis G80. It has 103.8 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to 93.8 cubic feet in the Genesis G70.


  • Ride and Handling: The Genesis G70 is exciting to drive, with controlled body lean, strong brakes, and responsive steering that are great for carving corners in Clearwater. The G80 is tuned more for comfort, with a multi-link suspension that keeps its ride soft and silky.
  • Acceleration: When equipped with the optional twin-turbocharged V6 engine and Launch Control, the Genesis G70 can race from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. The Genesis G80 takes 5.0 seconds to get from 0 to 60 with its most powerful setup.

Interior Comfort & Quality

  • Seating: Both the Genesis G70 and Genesis G80 come standard with synthetic leather upholstery, but the G80 comes with heated seats, which are just optional in the G70. Additionally, taller passengers in Largo will like that the G80 has 38.7 inches of backseat legroom. The G70 has 34.8 inches of second-row legroom.
  • Cabin Materials: The Genesis G80 has a handsome, cohesive, uncluttered interior that's awash in lavish materials like leather, wood, and aluminum. The G70 also has an attractive, tastefully designed cabin, but its materials don't match the G80's quality.

Infotainment & Tech

  • Infotainment System: A good infotainment system makes long drives go by faster. St. Petersburg drivers will love the Genesis G80's infotainment setup, which includes a standard, 14.5-inch touch screen with crisp graphics, large icons, and an intuitive menu structure. The Genesis G70 has an 8-inch touch screen and lots of physical buttons and dials for quick access to climate and audio settings.
  • Standard Tech Features: The Genesis G70 comes standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a six-speaker stereo. The Genesis G80's base trim has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, and a 12-speaker stereo system. Navigation and a nicer stereo are only optional in the G70.
