Compare the Lexus ES 250 AWD vs. the Genesis G80

The Lexus ES 250 AWD is the latest version of the popular ES Sedan series. Featuring a new all-wheel-drive powertrain, the new Lexus ES 250 for sale is the best way to conquer the weather, wherever you may be. There are many worthy competitors to the Lexus ES 250, but we thought you would like to see how it compares to the Genesis G80.

It is the latest in a long line of Lexus vehicles, available right now at Napleton's Lexus of Milwaukee. 

How do they compare?

The Lexus ES 250 and the Genesis G80 are both midsized five-passenger, four-door sedans. Identically-sized 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engines power them. In the case of the Lexus, expect to receive 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The Genesis G80 and its 2.5-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine supply 300 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. 

That's admittedly a difference of 97 horsepower that the Genesis has over the Lexus. But consider for a moment that on the Lexus ES 250 AWD, the all-wheel-drive is standard. On the Genesis G80, the AWD powertrain sets you back a few thousand dollars.


Which looks better?

Let's call this the grapple of the grilles. The Lexus ES 250 AWD utilizes the by now ubiquitous "spindle grille" while the Genesis is still getting familiar with its shield-like face. Blinged out with lots of chrome, the two vehicles are trying to woo the same customer. It all comes down to style, but we love the longer, leaner looks of the ES 250. 

Why Lexus?

People choose the Lexus brand for its stellar reliability, impeccable build quality and great resale value. Oh, did we mention all the standard equipment you get with it? That too. The 2021 Lexus ES brings all of that and excellent value for your money.

The ES 350 is well-equipped with dual-zone climate control, variable driving modes, three USB ports, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, an eight-inch display with a ten-speaker Pioneer audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels. From a safety standpoint, the ES includes the Lexus Safety System Plus 2.0, with adaptive cruise control, forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking, as well as intelligent high-beam, LED headlights. There's plenty of legroom for rear-seat passengers, not to mention a good-sized trunk.

What about the Genesis?

Following a recent redesign, the new Genesis G80 is back in a revised form. Gone is the V8 engine. It is now powered by a 2.5-liter inline turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V6. Rear wheel drive is standard, but AWD, which is standard on the Lexus ES 250, is available on the Genesis as extra. 

Navigation and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility are standard. Safety features include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance. It's a good but pricier package.
