Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis GV70 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Land Rover Discovery Sport, with comparable head- and legroom. The Genesis GV70 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

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 Land Rover Discovery Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Genesis GV70 and the Land Rover Discovery Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV70 is about the same width as the Land Rover Discovery Sport. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Genesis GV70, which is slightly longer than the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has the same turning radius as the Land Rover Discovery Sport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is clearly the choice over the Genesis GV70 for pulling heavy loads. The Genesis GV70 has a little more horsepower than the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV70 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Utility
The Genesis GV70 has less seating than the Land Rover Discovery Sport, making the Land Rover Discovery Sport the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Genesis GV70 as you will in the Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV70 than that of the Land Rover Discovery Sport.
