Serving Brunswick, GA

In a class filled with several midsize luxury cars, there are only two options worth mentioning; the 2020 Genesis G80 and the 2020 BMW 5 Series. Going head to head with some of the top European models is no easy feat, but the Genesis G80 easily holds its own. A close rival to the 2020 Genesis G80 is the 2020 BMW 5 Series. Also available with some good options, the 2020 5 Series comes close to toppling the king of this segment, but still, the Genesis G80 remains on top.

The 2020 Genesis G80 slots between the G70 and the G90. It is a standout option in its segment because of its appealing engine options, style, and affordable price. The 2020 model offers drivers in Brunswick the right mix of comfort and power, while adding a little style and an appealing price tag. Moreover, if you want a plethora of technology and safety features, the Genesis G80 at Genesis of Brunswick got you too. Visit us at Genesis of Brunswick at 5400 ALTAMA AVE, Brunswick, to learn more about the new Genesis G80. Here is more on why the 2020 BMW 5 Series is no match for the 2020 Genesis G80.


Midsize luxury cars are known for their athletic nature, so you want a quick car when shopping in this segment. This is what the Genesis G80 at Genesis of Brunswick offers you; three engine options, all of them fast and furious. The new G80 comes with a V6 as the base engine – a 3.8-liter V6 good for 311 hp and 293 lb-ft torque. Besides the standard engine, you have two other options; a turbocharged V6 and a V8. If you do not fancy the base engine, the twin-turbocharged V6 making 365 hp, will surely get you. But if that is still not enough power for you, you have the optional 420 hp V8.

When it comes to the BMW 5 Series, they offer you plenty of engine options, but most of them are not powerful. The BMW offers a 4-cylinder at the base trim, where the new G80 offers a V6. Their second option only manages 248 hp, which does not match the G80’s base V6. You have to upgrade to their third engine to get to 300 hp, which is still no match for the G80’s twin-turbocharged V6.


The Genesis G80 at Genesis of Brunswick comes with a classy, intuitive, and comfortable five-passenger cabin. It avoids the complications that most of the competition adds to today’s luxury cars. Everything in the cabin is logically placed, and the new G80 is that car where you just get in and drive. And unlike the other vehicles in this segment, including the BMW 5 Series, you do not have to pay extra to be swaddled in leather. You get a comfortable and well-tailored interior with adult-size friendly rear seats.

Contrarily, BMWs have a history of having rather hard interiors, and the 5 Series is no exception. Unlike in the G80, where you get real leather covering the surfaces, the 5 Series asks you to pay more for faux leather and even more to get real leather. Moreover, the dash has plenty of controls, most of which are not logically arranged, which may cause confusion while on the road, which is very dangerous.

Safety and Technology

The Genesis G80 at Genesis of Brunswick offers you value for your money. When you purchase a luxury car, you expect to get luxury at no extra cost. That is what the new Genesis G80 offers you. You get plenty of safety and technology features available at the entry-level. There are many power-operated amenities, including doors, windows, seating adjustments, steering column, keyless entry, and push-button start. To keep your cabin comfortable, you have the dual-zone climate control feature and heated front seats. Upfront, you get a large 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and navigation. Safety-wise, you get the latest safety suite with plenty of active safety features, including adaptive cruise control, driver monitor, lane-keeping assist, and a collision-prevention system.

The BMW Series is also a luxury car. It costs more than the G80, but still lacks some of the features available on the Genesis G80. You will have to pay extra to get the heated front seats, which are offered as standard on the new G80. They offer an okay safety suite, but if you want the adaptive cruise control and side-collision avoidance features, you will have to go deeper into your pocket.

The BMW 5 Series is a good luxury car, but it is focused on selling you things rather than giving them. If you want an excellent luxury car, visit us at Genesis of Brunswick for a new Genesis G80, a car that offers you the luxury you deserve at an affordable price.
