With further questions, feel free to reach out to us.

Performance

While all luxury cars look gorgeous, you still need to know what's under the hood. Both of these cars would blow the average sedan out of the water, but the G80 is a bit more powerful. With 311 horsepower on its base model, the ES's 3.5-liter V6 engine simply can't compete only allowing for 268 horsepower. If you want a little more, the available 5-liter V8 engine for the G80 can produce up to 420 horsepower.

The G80 has an additional advantage with the option for all-wheel drive. With this system, you can maintain control on the road in a variety of hazardous conditions like snow, ice, mud and more. With so much power packed into these cars, you need the extra control no matter how good of a driver you are.

Interior

The interior of a luxury car is where they can really shine, and both of these interiors are gorgeous. With fine leather materials and heated seats, both can offer a comfortable driving experience few other vehicles can match. However, the G80 has a bit more room which will come in handy for taller drivers.

In the front, you can enjoy 41.1 inches of headroom and 45.7 inches of legroom. The ES, on the other hand, only offers 37.5 inches of headroom and 41.9 inches of legroom. If you have to carry some cargo on your drive, both vehicles have nearly the same amount of cargo space with the G80 having an advantage of 0.1 cubic feet.

Safety

With tremendous power under the hood and relaxing comfort inside, it's easy to forget the dangers of driving. No matter what kind of vehicle you have, driving is always a risk, so it's important to play it safe. Both of these cars are well made, but only the G80 received five stars in all crash test categories. The Lexus received only four stars in front collision rating and rollover rating.

To keep up with the latest technology, Genesis and Lexus has included advanced driver assistance features in these vehicles. Lane keep assist, forward collision braking and more are included to make driving that much easier for you. However, only the G80 features driver attention alerts. Fatigue causes a surprisingly large number of accidents each year, so the G80 detects abnormalities in your driving pattern and alerts you with visual and audio cues to keep you awake and suggest you take a break.
