2017 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2017 BMW 440i

The BMW 440i has gained a lot of popularity as a reliable sedan. However, if you are interested in a full-size sedan that has a lot to offer, then it would be a good idea to compare it to the Hyundai Genesis before you make your purchase. The 2017 Hyundai Genesis has a lot more to offer in terms of equipment and value for money, as this comparison will show.

Design & Style

The BMW has an exterior that looks a bit gaudy, with features such as enlarged wheel arches and other bulges in the bodywork. However, its low stance shows that it’s meant to be a sportscar and nothing else. In the interior, the BMW has panels made of high quality material as would be expected. However, the steering wheel and dashboard seem to be cluttered with the presence of too many buttons and knobs.

The 2017 Hyundai Genesis has a more grown-up look, with smooth lines and a graceful profile. The interior is also more comfortable and airier than the BMW’s, making it the better place to be. The quality of material used in the interiors of both vehicles are comparable, only that the 2017 Hyundai Genesis seems to have better build quality as well.

Technology & Safety

You can expect high levels of technology and safety features offered since these are current vehicles. Both vehicles are fitted with modern amenities including multiple airbags, antilock braking systems, seat-belt pre-tensioners and traction control. However, the Hyundai Genesis offers a lot more, with features such as lane departure assist, adaptive cruise control and side assist available as standard options.


The BMW has a 3-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine which produces 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to an eight-speed sport automatic transmission, with a manual shift mode present.

The base Hyundai Genesis has a 3.3-liter V-6 petrol engine capable of producing an impressive 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with enhanced features such as SHIFTRONIC technology, overdrive lockup and shift lock. There are other drivetrain options available for the Hyundai Genesis, so you can easily find one that has power that matches that of the BMW. All in all, however, the Hyundai Genesis is a lot of fun to drive and is safer even in poor conditions such as wet roads.

The Bottom Line

The BMW might be one of the best luxury vehicles out there, but owning it does have its downsides. Buying the Hyundai Genesis means that you get all of what the BMW has to offer, without the negative aspects of it. The Hyundai is more easily maintained, and has less depreciation compared to the BMW. In addition to that, it’s also simply more fun to drive and is way more reliable as well.
