Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Genesis GV70, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Genesis GV70 and the Toyota Highlander.

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 Toyota Highlander, 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. The Genesis GV70 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Highlander.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV70 is a little narrower than the Toyota Highlander, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Genesis GV70, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Highlander.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Genesis GV70 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Genesis GV70 and the Toyota Highlander.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Genesis GV70 seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Highlander. The Genesis GV70 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Highlander.

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