Shoppers will find our Genesis dealership on Airline Hwy, less than 45 minutes outside of Hammond, LA.

Genesis G70 vs Mercedes-Benz C-Class

  • Price: While the retail price of a luxury sedan might not be a difficulty for you, the G70 can save you money over its Mercedes-Benz competitor. The base trim of the C-Class begins at a retail price well over $40,000 and is over $5,000 more than the starting price of the G70.
  • Convenience: For a little extra convenience during your daily drive through Prairie Springs, the G70 comes standard with speed-sensitive windshield wipers, speed-sensitive volume control, an auxiliary jack, and a remote fuel door release button on the key fob. All of these features cost extra with the C-Class.
  • Warranty: All warranties provided by Mercedes-Benz cover the C-Class for up to 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Genesis warranties are much more comprehensive, with a 60-month/60,000-mile Basic Warranty and 120 months/100,000 miles of powertrain coverage.
  • Interior: Wile a compact sedan, the G70 is quite roomy with up to 94 cubic feet of passenger volume. While the passenger volume of the C-Class is unlisted, this sedan ultimately falls short when it comes to legroom and shoulder room.

Genesis G70 vs Lexus IS

  • Interior: As with the C-Class, the Lexus IS sedan offers less legroom and shoulder room for you, your copilot, and backseat passengers as you drive through Gonzales, LA, with a passenger volume of 90 cubic feet.
  • Performance: Through its standard 252-horsepower twin-turbo engine, that generates 260 pound-feet of torque the G70 soars past the Lexus IS. The standard performance of this sedan from Lexus generates 241-horsepower and 258 pound-feet.
  • Convenience: The base trim of the Lexus IS does not come with a remote fuel door release button, active head restraints, memory settings for the exterior mirrors/steering column, or power lumbar support. All of these features are fully standard on the new Genesis G70.
  • Warranty/Price: The IS sedan starts out around $3,000 more than the price of the G70, and comes backed by a 40-month/50,000 basic warranty as well as a 72-month/72,000-mile powertrain warranty. Whereas, the Genesis G70 comes backed by a 60-month/60,000-mile Basic Warranty and 120-months/100,000 miles of powertrain coverage.
