There are two big questions you need to ask: Do you need all-wheel drive? How often do you plan to use the rear seat?
The Taurus SHO comes with all-wheel drive standard, while the Genesis is rear-wheel drive only. If you don’t need all-wheel drive, the Genesis has some favorable traits compared with the SHO.
If you plan to use the rear seat, the Genesis is better suited for the task. A few of our editors have noted the Taurus’ rear seat is on the smaller side for being such a large car. On the outside, the Genesis isn’t as long or as wide as the Taurus. But step inside, and the Genesis feels larger in the driver and passenger areas.
Both cars have similar pricing, horsepower and gas mileage. To compare their specifications, click here. If you’re looking for a more engaging driving experience, the rear-wheel-drive Genesis is surprisingly engaging for a large car.
Financing and cash-back incentives on both cars are offered in your area. To find them, click here. You also may want to consider the warranty programs, with Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty topping Ford’s five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
