Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Genesis GV70, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV70, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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). The Genesis GV70 is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Wrangler. 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 Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV70 is a little wider than the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Genesis GV70 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Genesis GV70 will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Genesis GV70 has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Genesis GV70 and the Jeep Wrangler. The Genesis GV70 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV70 than that of the Jeep Wrangler.
