2017 Volvo S90 vs Genesis G80: Let’s Talk Numbers

By  | 

The 2017 Volvo S90 and Genesis G80 are two superb vehicles but let’s take a look at the numbers to find out which comes out ahead.

The 2017 Genesis G80 commands a price tag of $41, 400 while the 2017 Volvo S90 is $46, 950, so there really isn’t much by way of price difference here.

The 2017 Genesis G80 is among the first of the new vehicles from the car maker and it is proving to be superb. It offers up a base engine that is great and it comes with plenty of active safety equipment as standard, with all wheel-drive being optional.

The 2017 Volvo S90 comes with all the styling and elegance of the XC90 crossover but in the form of a sedan. It is elegant and offers a design that is distinctly Scandinavian, the powertrains are refined and are fuel efficient. You should get around 18mpg when driving around the city and 28mpg when out on the highway.

The 2017 Genesis G80 offers the 3.8 litre engine and this is the V6 regular unleaded engine and it is rear wheel drive. The 2017 Volvo S90 has the I-4 intercooled turbo regular unleaded and it is front wheel drive.

On the downside the 2017 Genesis G80 doesn’t really offer any benefit to it having a bigger engine, there isn’t a lot of room in the trunk and it steals its design from other vehicles. The 2017 Volvo S90 doesn’t offer easy access to the back seat, full CarPlay connectivity doesn’t come as standard and the brand is lacking in luxury.

So have you decided whether to go for the 2017 Genesis G80 or the 2017 Volvo S90?
