Considering a new 2017 Genesis G80 or Genesis G90? The road between mid-size and luxury performance sedans is paved with plenty to consider. What's more, that from Sandy Springs or nearby Johns Creek and Duluth to visit our Atlanta Genesis dealer should, you might agree, be well worth traveling, too. So, before you make the trip, take into account this helpful comparison, and you can be ready for that test drive to remember when you arrive.

Trim options abound to start, from 3.8 and 5.0 in 2017 G80 to 3.3T and 5.0 trims in the 2017 G90, and they run the gamut from base Premium to the well-equipped Ultimate. You'll find an energetic drive in models like 2017 Genesis G80, to be sure, thanks to a powerful 311-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 and available 420-horsepower, 5.0-liter V8 variant. But if you're looking for a step up in performance, 2017 Genesis G90 showcases a 3.3-liter twin turbo V6 powerplant at a base 365 horsepower.

Handling's a breeze in both new Genesis sedans, thanks to the drive-adaptive capabilities of a standard SHIFTRONIC® auto transmission and, in the new G80, a responsive independent five-link front and rear suspension designed with input from Lotus Engineering experts. Ascend to the new 2017 G90, and you'll find a Genesis Adaptive Control Suspension with Electronic Damping Control delivering the height in sport-driving precision. Models like 2017 G80 even showcase four Intelligent Drive modes -- Normal, Sport, an efficient Eco, and Snow – matched only by the swap of Snow for a personalizable Custom mode in 2017 G90. The torque command afforded by HTRAC all-wheel drive also comes optional in both new Genesis models.

You'll find the same dedication to cutting-edge tech in the range of top-tier safety features of both Genesis G80 and G90. The former makes available an Emergency Steer Assist mode for maneuvering help, Smart Cruise Control with stop/start, course-management features like lane keep and lane change assist, lane departure warning, and blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, and more. Available automatic emergency braking helps mitigate a collision, while high-beam assist sheds light when you need it with other motorists in mind. The new 2017 Genesis G80 even features standard heated side mirrors and available rain-sensing wipers alongside optional front and rear parking sensors.

In the new 2017 Genesis G80, you'll find distinctive driver-assist elements like driver attention alert to help you remain focused, smart blind spot detection, a multi-view camera complete with front and rear parking sensors, and available auto emergency braking that incorporates pedestrian detection. There are even pre-safety seatbelts to help you take preventative measures should the worst approach, and Automatic Collision Notification assistance to summon help in the aftermath.
