Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis GV70 than in the Hyundai Kona EV. The Genesis GV70 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona EV, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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 Genesis GV70 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Kona EV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis GV70 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV70 is much wider than the Hyundai Kona EV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Genesis GV70, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Hyundai Kona EV.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Kona EV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis GV70 greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Kona EV.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV70 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Genesis GV70 and the Hyundai Kona EV. The Genesis GV70 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Hyundai Kona EV.

Warranty
The Genesis GV70 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Kona EV.
