Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis GV70 than in the Volvo XC40. The Genesis GV70 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC40.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Genesis GV70 as you will with the Volvo XC40, 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). The Genesis GV70 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC40.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV70 is a little wider than the Volvo XC40, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Genesis GV70, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volvo XC40.

Handling
The Genesis GV70 has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC40, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Genesis GV70 will do just as well as the Volvo XC40, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis GV70 greatly out-muscles the Volvo XC40.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Genesis GV70 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volvo XC40.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Genesis GV70 and the Volvo XC40. The Genesis GV70 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC40.
