GV80 vs BMW X5

Both standard with all-wheel drive, turbo engines, a suite of safety features, and 300+ horsepower, the GV80 and X5 truly go head-to-head in luxury features, but according to Motortrend, the Genesis GV80 comes out on top with incredibly comfortable, diamond-quilted interior seats, a sleek, stylish design, and a smooth powertrain. The GV80 also comes with slightly more cargo space, an all-digital 3D instrument cluster, and a standard 14.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Most importantly, the base trim BMW X5 costs $6,000 more than the base trim GV80 with similar safety features and amenities.

GV80 vs BMW X5

The BMW X5 is a luxury car for a reason with high tech features like the wireless phone projection, front seats with massage function, soft close doors, heated and cooled cup holders, and a heads up display. It also a very intuitive iDrive system, a great native navigation system, and safety features like Extended Traffic Jam Assistance. However, the X5 does it all at a much higher price tag while the GV80 comes equipped the almost 80-90% of the same features for a lower price point and without the need for additional packages as add-ons. In fact, AutoGuide.com rates the new GV80 as the clear winner over the BMW X5 because of its inclusive value. 

GV80 vs Lincoln Aviator

The Lincoln Aviator, with its 7-seater capacity, optional plug-in hybrid model, and beautiful interior is a nimble luxury competitor to the GV80. The Aviator's smooth ride is made possible with its sleek suspension and 400-hp twin-turbo V6 engine. It also comes standard with features like tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, remote start, simulated leather upholstery, and Lincoln's Co-Pilot 360 safety suite. Where the 5-seater Genesis GV80 wins out, however, is its better base engine, a longer warranty and sportier handling.

The Lexus RX 350 and GV80 are similar in performance, each offering around 300 hp, with the GV80 coming out just 20 horsepower ahead, but almost 50 more lb-ft of torque. The base level GV80 outperforms the RX 350 engine and offers an additional twin-turbo V6 engine option, where its Lexus competitor does not.
