Luxury Sedan Competitors are Struggling to Keep Up with the Genesis G80

The Genesis G80 is fairly new to the luxury sedan market, but the competition still has a lot to learn from this powerful, cutting-edge model. Providence shoppers will love the sculpted exterior, the extravagant comfort of the interior, and the blood-pumping power of the engine. Every aspect was crafted to provide drivers with a sedan that reaches the apex of luxury.

Other luxury sedans like the Audi A6 have had years to try and perfect their models, but they still lag behind (literally, in terms of performance) the Genesis G80. We've compared the two in areas that shoppers normally look to first, and we think you'll find the Genesis G80 is the best option.


The Genesis G80 is competitively-priced, with a lower starting MSRP than the Audi A6, but it also comes standard with a ton of luxury features that you won't find in the Audi A6.


The Genesis G80 is a luxury sedan in every trim level, but the Audi A6 leaves a lot of luxury features out of its base model.

  • USB ports allow for a simple connection between your smartphone and car. They'll keep your phone charged, and let you access music, apps, and calls and text messages. Every Genesis G80 has two USB ports, but the base model Audi A6 comes with none.
  • The Genesis G80 features a hands-free smart trunk that makes it easier to load the back when your hands are full. The Audi A6 doesn't come with this convenient feature.

With the Genesis G80 you don't have to pay much more for other comfort features that you won't find in any trim level of the Audi A6. These features include:

  • Both models have heated front seats standard, but Warwick rear-seat passengers can enjoy their own heated seats, so everyone can relax in luxury.
  • Heated seats are better for the New England winter, but the ventilated front seats of the Genesis G80 help you escape the heat in the summer.
  • The 9.2-inch HD touchscreen display is easier to use than the 7-inch touchscreen of the Audi A6


The Genesis G80 is not only more convenient, it's safer. It comes standard with innovative driver-assist features like:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert
  • Smart Cruise Control with stop/start
  • Lane Keep Assist/ Lane Departure Warning

These features reduce the likelihood of some of the most common types of accidents, and you'll only find them on the two priciest trims of the Audi A6.

New Bedford shoppers will have their choice of engines with either of these cars, but the Genesis G80 will give them a more thrilling ride. It has three engine options, and the Audi A6 has two options:

  • The 3.8-liter V6 comes standard in the Genesis 80, and still gives you 311 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque. The standard engine of the Audi A6 gets 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.
  • The 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 packs 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque, which blows the 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet specs of the Audi A6's most powerful engine.
  • The 5.0-liter V8 engine of the Genesis G80 gives you power seldom seen in a luxury sedan. It has 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque for instant acceleration and an incredibly fun ride.


The Genesis G80 gives you a more luxurious car than the Audi A6 at each trim level. It gives Fall River drivers a more exciting drive, more convenience, more comfort, and is filled with more safety features at a lower starting price than the Audi A6.
