Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Genesis GV80, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV80, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV80 as you will with the Nissan Armada, 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). The Genesis GV80 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Armada. 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 Nissan Armada.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV80 is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Nissan Armada.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Genesis GV80 and the Nissan Armada are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Genesis GV80 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan Armada, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis GV80 has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Armada.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Genesis GV80 seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Armada.

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