2017 Hyundai Genesis G80 vs. 2017 Cadillac CTS

For many years, the most ideal options for shoppers of luxury cars were limited to only car models from certain marques. However, in the past few years, several other luxury car models emerged to offer drivers with more options. The two fascinating possibilities that are turning heads are the Genesis G80 and the Cadillac CTS. The Genesis is a new creation from Hyundai that combines two car models namely the Hyundai Equus and the Hyundai Genesis. The new creation was rebranded as the fresh Genesis. This car competes with top luxury cars in terms of features and technology. The 2017 Genesis G80 biggest competitor is the 2017 Cadillac CTS but the G80 delivers a better overall value deal. Let’s look at why the Genesis emerges as the better choice.

Design & Style

Hyundai came up with a redesign in 2015 to create the Genesis and over the years, the newer model has become more nuanced and stylish in its design. The interior of the 2017 Genesis G80 has a look that emphasizes horizontal lines to create a classy finish. The cabin has beautiful interior hints of exciting color palette, soft-touch materials and cut-and-sew upholstery. It is no secret that both the G80 and CTS have more sharp style and sporty drive, but the G80 is highly valued and has some of the most advanced style features than its counterpart. In addition, the G80 takes things a step further with the best pricing between the two models.

Technology & Safety

Both the G80 and CTS have exceptional safety features and they have been ranked the highest in their class. However, the G80 has more advanced safety features which come as a standard but only offered as an option on the CTS. For starters, the G80 has front mounted radar that detects the distance between the cars ahead and automatically maintains your speed and distance. It also has a blind spot detection alert when there is an object in the way during a lane change. The G80 Lane Departure Warning feature detects when a driver drifts out of the lines and gives an audio and visual alert. All these safety features are available from Cadillac only as an option.


The G80’s standard 3.8L V6 delivers a muscular 311 horsepower at 6,000 RPM. Only offering 268 standard horsepower, the CTS doesn’t match the G80. Both cars are automatic and shift smoothly but when it comes to the base engine, the G80 offers a lot of other options that makes it more powerful and smoother.

The Bottom Line

Despite the Hyundai Genesis being a newer model in the market compared to other sedans, over the years, it has proved itself to become one of the hottest cars in its class. Both the G80 and CTS have outstanding features but clearly, the 2017 Hyundai Genesis G80 is better of the two.
