Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Suburban than in the Genesis GV80. The Chevrolet Suburban will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV80.

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

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 Chevrolet Suburban 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. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Suburban is much higher than that for the Genesis GV80.

If you go with the Chevrolet Suburban, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Genesis GV80.

The Chevrolet Suburban has a significantly larger turning radius than the Genesis GV80, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

With similar torque, the Chevrolet Suburban and the Genesis GV80 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Chevrolet Suburban more than the Genesis GV80, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Suburban is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis GV80.
