Ready to experience an SUV performance like no other? Thanks to robust powertrains and adaptive agility in the GV80 and the X5, these luxury models will easily take your breath away.

Power That Gets Your Heart Pumping

Much like you’re a spirited explorer at heart, the 2023 Genesis GV80 and the BMW X5 house heart-pumping engines at their core. The GV80’s 2.5L turbocharged engine and the X5’s 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo engine deliver impressive horsepower for smooth accelerations.

They both offer all-wheel drive systems, so your luxury SUV can maintain traction on all types of road conditions. However, this drivetrain is standard on the Genesis and merely available on the BMW.

Unleash Your Inner Explorer
  • Comfort
  • Snow
  • Eco
  • Sport
  • Custom

The BMW X5 offers only three drive modes: ECO PRO, COMFORT, and SPORT. Specifically, the lack of a Custom mode gives X5 drivers less customization of their drive. So, if you wish to fully unleash your inner explorer, the 2023 Genesis GV80 can satisfy your call to the wild.

Your comfort on both long and short drives is essential. Fortunately, the Genesis GV80 and the BMW X5 have cabins designed for drivers just like you. Go on, explore their spacious seating appointments and luxurious amenities below.

Wiggle Room Included

While these luxury SUVs’ engines supply the brawn, their luxurious cabins provide the beauty and the brains. The Genesis GV80 and the BMW X5 supply soft-touch seating with plenty of wiggle room for long road trips or adventures to the woods.

Although they have similar cabin sizes, you can enjoy a lot more legroom in the Genesis GV80—perfect for those weekend adventures or long commutes to the office. It might be a bit more cramped in the BMW X5.

As for the BMW X5, its standard 12.3-inch display may be more challenging to use due to its smaller size. Plus, its available Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio only comes with 16 speakers. Meanwhile, the Genesis GV80 provides next-level technology on its standard trim.

Your Security Entourage

As for safety, the GV80 comes with a suite of cutting-edge safety systems, both standard and available. While both models share a few features—Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist—the 2023 Genesis GV80 also has these intuitive systems at its command:
