2021 Genesis GV80 Engines & Powertrain

Compare the GV80 to Macan by looking at the engine options. The Genesis SUV comes on the G80 sedan platform, allowing for either rear- or all-wheel-drive variants. GV80 owners have two engine choices - the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6. We don't have the horsepower, or EPA fuel economy estimates yet, but we will update it once the information becomes available. However, if these powertrains are similar to what's offered on the G80 sedan, we expect at least 300-hp and 18 city/26 highway mpg.

2020 Porsche Macan Engines & Powertrain

There are three engine options with the 2020 Porsche Macan. The base engine is a 248-horsepower turbo-four. The Macan S comes with a 3.0-liter turbo-six, while there is also a 434-horsepower 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. The base 2020 Macan achieves 19/23 mpg. While we don't know the Macan Turbo's mpg ratings, we do know that the Macan S has mpg numbers of 18/23 mpg. The GV80 has comparable power, and if expectations hold, it will be more fuel-efficient than the Macan.

The 2021 Genesis GV80 hasn't been rated yet but comes with many standard safety features. We expect to see a semi-autonomous driving mode, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. Not to mention that, according to Business Insider, Genesis is ranked as the #1 most reliable car brand in 2020 by J.D. Power.

2020 Porsche Macan Safety & Reliability
