Any professional luxury car dealer will tell you that the best way to determine the quality of a car is to compare it to its leading competitor. So our dealers at O’Brien Genesis of Fort Myers have put together this comparison of the 2020 Genesis G80 and the equally impressive 2020 Infiniti Q60.
Both the 2020 Genesis G80 and the 2020 Infiniti Q60 are luxury sedans that attempt to wow drivers in terms of performance and overall comfort. In terms of performance, the Infiniti Q60 does an adequate job with its 3.0-liter V6 engine that makes about 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, but it doesn’t quite cut it when you match it against the 2020 Genesis G80. Roaring out of the gate, the base model of the 2020 Genesis G80 starts with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that seamlessly puts out 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque, and that’s just the start. At its best, the Genesis G80 is equipped with a V8 engine that puts out 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft worth of torque.
But what about comfort? The 2020 Infiniti Q70 does come with some high-quality interior cabin materials, but the styling is rather uninspired. That’s not to mention the Infiniti Q70 isn’t particularly roomy. There is also no standard active safety tech, and some of the internal screens are still operated by a dated nob function. The 2020 Genesis G80, on the other hand, ups the ante with heated leather seats, wood accents, and 35 inches of rear legroom. Add in the fact that you’ll get all sorts of active safety features as standard and have an 8.0-inch infotainment screen to manipulate, and you have a luxury sedan that is far more advanced than its competitor.
As you can see, the 2020 Genesis G80 is an outstanding competitor that attempts to make things feel just as premium as they look. You can check out the new 2020 Genesis G80 first hand at our Genesis dealership in Fort Myers, where our dealers will give you an in-depth test drive of this incredible luxury sedan.
