Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis GV80 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Land Rover Discovery, with comparable head- and legroom. The Genesis GV80 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV80 as you will with the Land Rover Discovery, 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). Whether you pick the Genesis GV80 or the Land Rover Discovery, 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 GV80 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Land Rover Discovery.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV80 is a little narrower than the Land Rover Discovery, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Genesis GV80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Land Rover Discovery.

Handling
The Genesis GV80 has a smaller turning radius than the Land Rover Discovery, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV80 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Land Rover Discovery.

Utility
The Genesis GV80 has less seating than the Land Rover Discovery, making the Land Rover Discovery the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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