The 2021 Genesis GV80 vs. Lexus and BMW

Genesis of Baton Rouge is proud to announce that the long-awaited 2021 Genesis GV80 has hit the showroom floor. This luxury SUV offers drivers in Baton Rouge a luxury experience like no other, one-upping the competition in almost every category. While we are well aware of the other upscale SUVs out there, drivers near Hammond will have an easy decision after test driving the 2021 Genesis GV80 at Genesis of Baton Rouge.

What Makes the 2021 Genesis GV80 Outclass the Competition?

Despite the 2021 Genesis GV80, the 2021 Lexus RX 350, and the 2021 BMW X5 all being upscale SUVs, only one is the complete package. But, to get the whole picture of each vehicles performance and many features, we compare and contrast each model.


All three vehicles have a powerful engine under the hood, getting you where you want to go quickly. For example, inside the 2021 Genesis GV80, drivers will find an engine that takes them from 0-60 miles per hour in only 5.3 seconds, picking up quickly. This is because the SUV has a 3.5-liter 6-cylinder turbocharged engine that boasts 375 horsepower.

When we look at the 2021 Lexus RX 350, we find a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers 295 horsepower. Likewise, inside the 2021 BMW X5, drivers will find a turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine with an 8-speed transmission that gets 355 horsepower. Both vehicles are proving to be a powerful drive around Prairieville but are not as quick as the 2021 Genesis GV80.


Comfort and design matter when deciding which luxury SUV you want to take home. Every road trip, short or long, will remind you why you love your SUV or why you regret choosing the vehicle you did. With the 2021 Genesis GV80, drivers will have no regrets as the SUV has buttery, smooth, and soft seats throughout the SUV, giving a look and feel of luxury. There are also heated and ventilated seats and tri-zone climate control.

On the other hand, the 2021 Lexus RX 350 has soft seats as well with power-adjustable front seats and dual-zone climate control. However, the vehicle does not have heated or ventilated seats, putting pressure on climate control. Looking at the interior of the 2021 BMW X5 will show drivers another SUV full of comfortable chairs, but again without the heated or ventilated seats. Some features the SUV does have are buttons for controlling the climate and ample room for passengers.


Technology makes or breaks an SUV these days, with many drivers relying on it for information and entertainment. Luckily, these vehicles are all loaded with technology features. For example, in the 2021 Genesis GV80, drivers will find plenty of driver aids, such as smart cruise control with highway driving assist, helping drivers stay centered in their lane and keep a healthy distance from other vehicles. The vehicle also has expert navigation, remote start parking assist, touchscreen HVAC controls, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more.

The other luxury SUVs also feature advanced technology. The 2021 Lexus RX 350 has Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, dual-zone automatic climate control, and Amazon Alexa integration, providing entertainment for drivers and passengers. Inside the 2021 BMW X5, drivers near Gonzales can expect Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well. The vehicle also has adaptive cruise control, navigation, and an infotainment system. Overall, the 2021 Genesis GV80 has the most safety-related tech features.
