2017 Audi A6 vs. 2017 Genesis G80

Have you ever been caught in between choosing from a known luxury car brand only to realize later that there is a better choice over what you already have in mind? This happens often to auto buyers in Eastchester New York who happen to think of the 2017 Genesis G80 as the next car they will buy but that is before they come across the better 2017 Audi A6. Learn why we are saying that the Audi A6 is a better choice through this comparison.

Design & Style

Both sedans provide elegance and style in terms of their exterior design. In fact, when you take a look at these car models with the same color, you can even interchange one from the other. To establish the difference, however, it pays to take a look at what is found inside. For the 2017 Genesis G80, you will be delighted by its roomy cabin. This has compromised headroom however. Another point of disappointment is the fact that while the front seats can be adjustable, it does not offer the same comfort as the Audi A6.

Apart from this, consider the fact that the 2017 Audi A6 has a very attractive dash layout complemented by high quality materials. The cabin of this sedan is even known as a front runner for its class. The solid finish makes the interior even more attractive to users.

Technology & Safety

If technology and safety feature is a concern then you will surely want to know which between these two excels in this aspect. Taking a look at what the 2017 genesis G80 can offer, you will notice the standard touchscreen display as well as the smartphone integration that comes with the standard package.

If you want a better set of features, you will never go wrong with what is offered by the 2017 Audi A6. Its MMI system can also be used as a WiFi hotspot that can connect up to eight users. It also comes with Audi's PreSense Basic Safety system. Blind-spot monitoring systems are also offered in various trim levels for this car model.


Performance wise, the 2017 Genesis G80 is gifted with a V6, 3.8-liter engine that can produce up to 293lb-ft of torque and 420 horsepower. Its counterpart in the 2017 Audi A6 range has a 3.0-liter, V6 engine that can produce up to a maximum of 325lb-ft of torque which is much higher than that of what the G80 can produce. While the horsepower produced by the A6 engine is lower at 333 horsepower, it still manages to have a faster response time.

The Bottom Line

With this comparison, it is now easier for you to finally decide on getting a 2017 Audi A6 instead of a 2017 Genesis G80. After all, this car from Audi is a perfect choice, all factors considered. The G80 may impress you at first glance but if you want a car that can provide you the comfort and luxury it promises, you should choose the 2017 Audi A6.
