G80 vs E-Class: Potent Performance

2018 Genesis G80 in Victoria BlackLet's not beat around the bush: Those robust engines are what every driver is looking for in a luxury car! When you look at the base trim levels of the G80 and E-Class, it's clear that the G80 has a solid advantage. Its 3.8-liter V6 cranks out 311 horsepower, for power behind the wheel you can really feel.

While the base E-Class has an impressive output, it can't quite compete with the robust G80. The standard powerplant is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, and it produces just 241 horsepower. That's enough to get you from Point A to Point B, but not with the same liveliness as the Genesis car.

You'll enjoy the sporty rear-wheel drive (RWD) in both vehicles-unless you decide to upgrade to the optional all-wheel drive (AWD) for more traction on rough or slippery roads.

Extravagant Exterior Features

You can't discuss luxury cars without mentioning style. The Genesis G80 and Mercedes E-Class really shine in this respect, with top-shelf features like available LED headlamps. For a brighter shine that lasts longer and runs more efficiently, you can't go wrong with either car.

However, there's no denying that the G80 exudes a more muscular, athletic, and modern vibe than the E-Class. The cascading grille, furrowed headlamps, and sloping fastback style of the G80 combine to create a decidedly dynamic look.

Meanwhile, the E-Class sedan lacks the fastback styling of the G80, and those rounded headlamps lend it a wide-eyed, rather than aggressive, look. The grille's two chrome bars exude style in a classical way, but it lacks the lively, fluid appearance of the G80 front fascia.

Intuitive Safety for Your Drive

2018 Genesis G80 Safety TechnologyThe G80 and E-Class have fared well in crash tests in recent years. They both earned 5-Star Overall Safety Ratings from the NHTSA in 2018, the organization's highest honor. Both also earned 2018 Top Safety Pick+ designations from the IIHS.

On the other hand, you'll find many more standard driver-assist features in the Genesis car. Its standard features list includes: Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Keep Assist.

While many of these same features are available on the Mercedes-Benz, Forward Collision Warning alone comes standard. When it comes to accident prevention technology, that gives the G80 a major leg up.
