The 2019 Genesis G80 comes standard with a strong, 3.8-liter V6 engine that puts out 311 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque. This is significantly more performance than you get from the Volvo S90's turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which produces 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. When accelerating, you'll definitely feel the Genesis G80's extra punch under the hood. A twin-turbo V6 engine is found on the G80's new 3.3T Sport trim. It develops a more exciting 335 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque. While the Volvo S90 offers a 400-hp hybrid model, expect the G80 5.0 Ultimate to deliver more fun. Its 5.0-liter, DOHC V8 engine pushes out a total of 420 hp.


While the 2019 Volvo S90 feels secure around corners, it's not quite as athletic as the 2019 Genesis G80. This is especially true for the all-new G80 3.3T Sport. This fun-to-drive trim comes equipped with an adaptive CDC suspension for sharper handling. Volvo doesn't offer a sport version of the S90. A tighter turning radius also makes the G80 easier to maneuver in tight spots.


These well-engineered luxury sedans provide excellent impact protection. In fact, the 2019 Genesis G80 scored a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. Both cars also come standard with valuable accident-avoidance technologies like blind-spot monitoring and forward collision intervention. However, only the G80 provides height-adjustable rear seat belts. This means passengers sitting in the backseat will have an easier time buckling up.

Passenger Room

Both the 2019 Genesis G80 and the 2019 Volvo S90 are spacious. Your family will have ample space to stretch out. However, the G80 is bigger on the inside. It has a total passenger volume of 107.7 cubic feet, which is better than the S90's passenger volume of 102 cubic feet. Tall drivers will especially prefer being behind the wheel of the G80. Not only does the G80 provide 3.5 inches more front legroom, but it also provides significantly more headroom in the front.


Class-leading warranty coverage gives the 2019 Genesis G80 a clear advantage. Genesis provides a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. Meanwhile, the 2019 Volvo S90 comes with a 4-year/50,000-mile powertrain warranty and a 4-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. You'll definitely appreciate the Genesis G80's extra buyer protection.


Although the 2019 Volvo S90 is a great luxury sedan, it's been upstaged by the 2019 Genesis G80. A more powerful engine lineup, greater passenger room, a better warranty, and a lower MSRP help give the G80 the edge.
