As we can see from the table above, the Genesis GV70 base engine composed of a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is way more powerful than the BMW X3. On one hand, the X3 offers an impressive list of optional powertrains such as its 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine that produces 503 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. However, this comes at a higher cost while also putting it on a different spectrum, so much so that this configuration is sold as a standalone model. Taking this into consideration, the GV70 has a significant advantage as it offers potent powertrains for the regular trims, to begin with. Not to forget the GV70’s more powerful twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine option that puts out an impressive 375 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque.
The GV70’s cabin is draped with high-quality materials giving it a plush and exclusive look. While the base trim gets leatherette-upholstered seats, the top-end trim takes it up a notch with leather upholstery along with heated and ventilated front seats. Even though the X3 offers a similar configuration, it is not as well-rounded as the GV70. The base GV70 gets a 14.5-inch HD touchscreen display that works seamlessly and is more user-friendly compared to X3’s 10.3-inch touchscreen display. Standard features in the GV70 include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, Navigation System, Premium Audio System, and Genesis Connected Services.
Safety features offered in the 2022 GV70 are extensive and in many cases, more comprehensive than what is offered on the 2022 X3. Taking all this into consideration, the 2022 Genesis GV70 is a wholesome SUV that surely has an edge over the 2022 BMX X3.
