Comparison Review

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

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 XL, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 XL. 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 XL.

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 XL.

The Genesis GV80 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the GMC Yukon XL, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

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

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