Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the BMW X5 than the Genesis GV80. The Genesis GV80 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X5, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

The BMW X5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Genesis GV80, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The BMW X5 is somewhat more expensive 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. In this case, the BMW X5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Genesis GV80.

The BMW X5 is a little wider than the Genesis GV80, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW X5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Genesis GV80.

The BMW X5 has a larger turning radius than the Genesis GV80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the BMW X5 is clearly the choice over the Genesis GV80 for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X5 has a little less horsepower than the Genesis GV80.

With its lower torque engine, the BMW X5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Genesis GV80.

The BMW X5 offers greater seating capacity than the Genesis GV80, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

The basic warranty of the BMW X5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis GV80.
