2021 Genesis GV80 vs 2022 Acura MDX

Serving Troy, MI

In a detailed search for a midsize luxury crossover, a look at two of the more innovative models with fresh styling is in order. The 2021 Genesis GV80 is the automaker’s first crossover SUV model. It can be compared to the 2022 Acura MDX, which will be a next-generation model. These are both striking crossovers with three-row seating and relatively comparable pricing. However, understanding their differences is essential in order to make your next auto purchase in the Troy area with confidence.


The 2021 GV80 has an impeccable design that is unlike anything else on the road today. Its profile is brought to life by smoothly flared haunches and a gentle yet confident curve over the long hood and roof. The chrome grille has a diamond pattern, and it covers most of the tall nose. The headlights, taillights and the side accents have a unique look with stacked, rectangular elements. In comparison, the 2022 Acura MDX has an expected grille design that is marked by a crease down the center of the vehicle’s nose. Both the front and rear lights are characterized by a stretched design with LED light ribbons.


The standout styling and overall sophistication of the 2021 GV80 continues throughout the interior with quilted leather seats, wood accents and ambient lighting. The digital cockpit display and navigation system readout sits behind the unique steering wheel. Across the wide center console and stack, you can appreciate relatively smooth surfaces with low-profile knobs and buttons. The extended touch display screen rises above the center stack. The 2022 Acura MDX, on the other hand, has a bulky front row thanks to the multi-level center stack and the overload of buttons and knobs. While the display screen is mounted on top of and pushed back from the center stack, the stack also has separate and offset levels for the climate controls, driving modes, gear selection, a charging station, and more.


The 2021 GV80’s two engines are a 2.5-liter, turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and a V6, twin-turbo 3.5-liter engine that generates 390 horsepower. The MDX for 2022 is available with a single powertrain. This is a V6, 3.5-liter powertrain that produces 290 horsepower.
