2022 Genesis GV80 vs. Its Competition

2022 Genesis GV80 Prestige Signature
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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

The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has slightly more third-row space, not to mention a whale of a good time in its AMG performance variants.

The BMW X5 has both plug-in hybrid and high-performance V-8 versions, and a radiant cabin with white leather and a crystal shifter on the options list.

The Audi Q8 raises Audi’s luxury game with cutting-edge tech, and still comes in seven-seat Q7 spec.

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, but it’s aging.
