2021 Genesis GV80 Exterior Colors, Design, & Dimensions

The exterior dimensions of the 2021 Genesis measure in at 194.7" L x 77.8" W x 67.5" H. This new luxury SUV comes with your choice of 19- or 22-inch wheels, plus at least eight standard exterior colors. These colors include Uyuni White, Vik Black, Savile Silver, Himalayan Gray, Adriatic Blue, Gold Coast Silver, Alta White, and Lima Red. The Genesis GV80 has a sleek appearance with a prominent grated, honeycomb front grille, sloped rooflines, and a unique headlight design.

2020 Range Rover Sport Exterior Colors, Design, & Dimensions

You won't find many Range Rover lookalike models, but that's not a bad thing. This luxury SUV dimensions measure 192″ L x 78″ W x 71″ H. This significant height increase makes the Range Rover Sport appear boxier and less sporty, giving the concern of a top-heavy drive. The 2020 Range Rover Sport is equipped with 19-, 20- or 21-inch wheels while offering 31 exterior color options. Even though this color variety is impressive, it is also a bit misleading. More than half of those color options are multiple, all-to-similar shades of black and white.

2021 Genesis GV80 Engines & Powertrain

In-depth specifications such as horsepower, torque, and towing capacity are not available at this time.

2021 Genesis GV80 Safety & Reliability

We don't have safety ratings for the 2021 Genesis GV80 as most vehicle safety ratings are released after launch, but it should do well in testing. We do know that this luxury Genesis SUV will come with lots of standard safety equipment. So far, we expect to see a semi-autonomous driving mode, lane-keeping assist, automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning.

2020 Range Rover Sport Safety & Reliability

We don't have safety ratings to share on the 2020 Range Rover Sport yet. Unfortunately, for many years now, consumers have been left in the dark. The Range Rover Sport has no official safety rating from either the IIHS or NHTSA in over a few years. However, owners do gain many safety features, including lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, and parking sensors.

Genesis GV80 or Range Rover Sport? It's time for something new.

As you look at the differences between the new Genesis GV80 SUV or Range Rover Sport, you can see that we still have a lot of information to learn. Right now, we know that the new GV80 will be the pinnacle of SUV luxury and will be available for far less than the Range Rover Sport. Budget is such a big part of any purchase decision, including luxury vehicles. Why spend so much more for a car that doesn't offer more standard luxury? These two factors alone show why the new Genesis SUV is the winner of the Genesis GV80 or Range Rover debate. Please browse our inventory below and contact us with any questions or concerns.
