The 2021 Genesis GV80
The 2021 Genesis GV80 is up against some stiff competition – the cheapest Bentley Bentayga you can buy. Granted it’s a few years old and the depreciation has made it more affordable. But there is no denying that these two SUVs share much of the same DNA. In fact, the more you look into what makes these two luxury rollers tick, the more you will see their similarities. However they also differ in more ways than just price.
The Genesis has a turbocharged six cylinder engine in this trim, putting out a respectable 375 horsepower and 391 foot pounds of torque. The Bentley Bentayga on the other hand, slams 600 horsepower out of an incredibly smooth twin-turbo W12. This leaves Thomas comparing it to a boulder at the top of the cliff, where with one push of your foot you can command tremendous power. The GV80’s engine on the other hand, the guys describe as a bit coarse but certainly not slow. How do you think the new Genesis will stack up against the mighty Bentley Bentayga? Watch and find out!
Luxury and Class for Half the Price?
James lived with the 2021 Genesis GV80 for a week and really enjoyed his experience. Both the ride quality and powerplant had him showing his respect to what Genesis has done. But the burning question lingers: Does the GV80 provide the full Bentley experience for nearly half the cost? The guys share their thoughts and examine just how well the Genesis performs in the market. Enjoy the video!
