G80 vs Stinger: Safety Features

2018 Genesis G80 Interior SafetyFeeling secure behind the wheel is essential. The G80 and Stinger offer certain features to make it happen, including standard rearview cameras, so you can get a good look at what's coming and going behind you as you back up.

However, the G80 has many more standard driver-assist features, including Forward Collision Warning, to warn you of an impending frontal collision and help apply the brakes to avoid it. Adaptive Cruise Control is also standard, so you can keep a preset distance from the car ahead of you without manually adjusting your speed.

These features are available in the Stinger, but you'll need to upgrade to get them.

All-Star Performance Specs

One thing you can count on with luxury cars? Plenty of power under the hood. You can fit the Kia Stinger with either a punchy turbocharged 4-cylinder engine (255 horsepower) or a potent twin-turbocharged V6 (365 horsepower), which will get you from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.7 seconds.

Options in the 2019 Genesis G80 are even more abundant. You can pick from three engines: a 311-horsepower V6, a 365-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6, and a vigorous V8 that cranks out up to 420 horsepower. If you're looking for thrills, you'll find more in the G80 with its impressive engine lineup.

Both cars come standard with rear-wheel drive (RWD), so you can enjoy sporty driving dynamics wherever you go. If you're looking for sturdiness in inclement weather conditions, both cars offer available all-wheel drive (AWD) for more grip.

Cabin Comforts: The Interior

2018 Genesis G80 PerformanceThe G80 and Stinger are similar in many respects, but they differ when it comes to cabin space. The Stinger is a small car while the G80 is a midsize car, so you'll find more passenger space in the Genesis car. It has 107.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the Stinger offers just 93.8 cubic feet.

Due to its larger size, there's more headroom in the G80. With more than 41 inches of headroom in the front row and more than 38 inches of headroom in the rear, taller drivers and passenger can get comfy without their heads rubbing up against the cabin roof.

The Stinger, on the other hand, offers about 38 inches of headroom in the front row and 37 inches in the rear. Those figures give the tallest among us less room to work with as they try to get comfortable.
