2021 Genesis GV80 vs. Its Competition

2021 Genesis GV80
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The 2021 GV80 competes with other mid-size luxury crossover SUVs that shouldn’t fit a third row.

The BMW X5 is due for an update, but a plug-in hybrid and high-performance V-8 give shoppers lots of options.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class just expanded with AMG performance variants of its own.

The Audi Q8 raises Audi’s luxury game with cutting-edge tech.

The refreshed F-Pace finally gets an interior befitting its gorgeous exterior.

The Volvo XC90 seats seven and looks almost as good as the GV80.
