Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport 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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross 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). The Genesis GV70 is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. 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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV70 is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

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

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

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV70 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV70 than that of the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.
