Starting with the exterior design, both the 2016 Hyundai Genesis and the 2016 Lexus GS 200t are stunning with their aerodynamic shape and dynamic design, but which takes style up a notch? For starters, the Genesis takes corners effortlessly on 18-inch standard wheels, while you’ll only find 17-inch wheels as standard in the GS 200t. For prime visibility during inclement weather, have peace of mind that the Genesis comes standard with integrated fog lights and heated side mirrors. Better yet, the standard rain-sensing wipers on the Genesis turn on as soon as moisture hits your windshield. You won’t find fog lights or heated mirrors at all in the GS 200t, and, if you want rain-sensing wipers, you’ll have to pay extra for a package. You also won’t find a hands-free smart trunk on the Lexus GS 200t, but you will on the Hyundai Genesis. Just stand three feet behind the Genesis for three seconds, and it’ll open up to reveal 15.3 cubic ft. of trunk space. You’ll have to fumble with your keys to open the trunk of the GS 200t, and, once you do, you’ll only have 14.1 cubic ft. of space.
This head-to-head between the 2016 Hyundai Genesis vs 2016 Lexus GS 200t near Laurel, MD, also shows which one has a more feature-packed interior.

Close the standard power rear sunshade in the Genesis, which you’ll only find in the GS 200t with an additional package. To keep you comfortable, the Genesis has a 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, as well as standard heated front seats to fight the winter chill. To compare, the GS 200t only has a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and you’ll only find heated front seats when you add a package.
When it’s time for the family road trip to Richmond, the 2016 Genesis will get you there easily with the standard navigation on the 8-inch touchscreen. Better yet, the Genesis also includes a 3-year subscription to SiriusXM Travel Link®, which keeps you up-to-date with traffic conditions, weather forecasts, gas prices, sports scores, and more. While the 2016 GS 200t, also comes with a standard 8-inch touchscreen, you won’t have navigation unless you add on a package. And although this will come with Lexus Enform Destinations1, it’s only complimentary for one year, and won’t bring as much information to your fingertips.
