Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Yukon than in the Genesis GV80, due to its greater head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV80 as you will with the GMC Yukon, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 GV80 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Yukon. 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 GV80 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the GMC Yukon.

Dimensions
If you go with the Genesis GV80, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the GMC Yukon.

Handling
The Genesis GV80 has the same turning radius as the GMC Yukon, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the GMC Yukon is clearly the choice over the Genesis GV80 for pulling heavy loads. The Genesis GV80 has a little more horsepower than the GMC Yukon.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Genesis GV80 and the GMC Yukon are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Genesis GV80 seats a lot fewer people than the GMC Yukon.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV80 than that of the GMC Yukon.
