Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi Q7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Genesis GV80, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Audi Q7 and the Genesis GV80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi Q7 as you will with the Genesis GV80, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi Q7 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Genesis GV80. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi Q7 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Genesis GV80.

Dimensions
The Audi Q7 is about the same width as the Genesis GV80. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi Q7, which is slightly longer than the Genesis GV80.

Handling
The Audi Q7 has a larger turning radius than the Genesis GV80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Audi Q7 is clearly the choice over the Genesis GV80 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Audi Q7 has a lot less horsepower than the Genesis GV80.

Powertrain
The Audi Q7 has much lower torque than the Genesis GV80, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Audi Q7 offers greater seating capacity than the Genesis GV80, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi Q7 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis GV80.
