Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot than in the Genesis GV70, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Genesis GV70 and the Honda Pilot.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV70 as you will with the Honda Pilot, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Genesis GV70 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Pilot.

Dimensions
Since the Genesis GV70 is much slimmer than the Honda Pilot, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Genesis GV70, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Pilot.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has the same turning radius as the Honda Pilot, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Genesis GV70 is clearly the choice over the Honda Pilot for pulling heavy loads. The Genesis GV70 has a little more horsepower than the Honda Pilot.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Genesis GV70 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda Pilot.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Genesis GV70 seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Pilot. The Genesis GV70 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Honda Pilot.
