Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis GV80 than in the Volvo XC90. 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 Volvo XC90.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV80 as you will with the Volvo XC90, 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 Volvo XC90. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Genesis GV80 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volvo XC90.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV80 is a little narrower than the Volvo XC90, 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 Volvo XC90.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV80 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC90.

Handling
The Genesis GV80 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volvo XC90, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Genesis GV80 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC90.

Utility
The Genesis GV80 has less seating than the Volvo XC90, making the Volvo XC90 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 Volvo XC90.
