Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis GV70 than in the Lexus NX 300. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Genesis GV70 and the Lexus NX 300.

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). Whether you pick the Genesis GV70 or the Lexus NX 300, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lexus NX 300 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV70 is much wider than the Lexus NX 300, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Genesis GV70 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus NX 300.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has the same turning radius as the Lexus NX 300, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Genesis GV70 is clearly the choice over the Lexus NX 300 for pulling heavy loads. The Genesis GV70 has a little more horsepower than the Lexus NX 300.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV70 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus NX 300.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Genesis GV70 and the Lexus NX 300. The Genesis GV70 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lexus NX 300.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV70 than that of the Lexus NX 300.
