2018 Genesis G80 vs 2018 BMW 5 Series in Dallas


While a new luxury sedan can be a stylish and classy way to get around, good looks are not the only components that make a sedan excellent. The right sedan for you needs to have a lot of practical features to match its sophistication, such as important safety features, a powerful and efficient engine, and all of the latest technology. While the Genesis brand is relatively new to the luxury sedan game, it is already becoming a model of luxury sedan excellence and allows its users to truly have it all in their next car. The spacious and stylish Genesis G80 is here in Dallas at Genesis of Dallas, less than 25 minutes outside of Arlington, and it is ready to make a difference in your life!

However, it is one thing to simply say your sedan is one of the best out there, but smart shoppers like you deserve facts of this as proof, so we here at our Dallas, TX Genesis dealership put together some information about the sedans in our new inventory and how they stack up against the leading luxury competitors, so let us see how the 2018 Genesis G80 fares against another worthy challenger of its class: the 2018 BMW 5 Series!

Which Luxury Sedan has More to Offer Texas? The Genesis G80 or the BMW 5 Series?

  • While both of these sedans are 2018 Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the G80 features second-row side airbags, front seatbelt height adjusters, and active front head restraints. All of these features are either absent from the base trim of the BMW 5 Series or absent from the sedan entirely.
  • Overall, the Genesis G80 is the more affordable of these two sedans as it starts out at $41,750, which is over $13,000 less than the $54,950 starting price of the BMW 5 Series.
  • If it is a powerful engine and dynamic drive that you seek from your next sedan, then the G80 will not disappoint as it features a 311-hoersepower 24 valve V6 engine in its base trim level, which generates 293 pound-feet of torque. The starting engine of the BMW 5 Series is a 180-horsepower inline four-cylinder (I4) engine which generates 255 pound-feet.
  • In addition to its powertrain, the Genesis 80 has a great deal of fuel efficiency to offer and can travel an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway, with a total fuel tank capacity of 20.3 gallons. The fuel economy of the BMW 5 Series is unlisted, and this sedan can hold about 12.1 gallons of fuel. Most BMW models are not generally known for their fuel efficiency.
  • Finally, the Genesis G80 is the better choice when it comes to the comfort of you and your passengers, and features about 108 cubic feet of interior passenger volume, which is about as much space as a mid-sized SUV. The BMW 5 Series features about 99 cubic feet of passenger volume and has considerably less head and leg room to offer up in the front seats.
