Comparison Review

Comfort
The Genesis GV70 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Nissan Pathfinder. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV70.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV70 as you will with the Nissan Pathfinder, 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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Genesis GV70 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Pathfinder.
