Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The GV80 is a brand-new entrant into the mid-size luxury SUV marketplace. It will go on sale in summer 2020 as a 2021 model.

Pros
Lovely interior ambience,
standard high-tech features,
agile handling.

Cons
Cramped third-row passenger space,
no diesel engine for the U.S.,
heavily weighted steering feel.

Supremely quiet
Roomy rear seats
Attention to detail

Infotainment dial
Touchscreen distance

The Genesis GV80 is finally on local roads, and it's hard not to be impressed by the new luxury flagship. It's a segment that Genesis needs to succeed in, too.

Pros
Choice of engines and match with eight-speed are excellent
Execution of the design and the cabin is first-rate
Styling provides a real point of difference

Cons
Lane-departure system is a little too enthusiastic on country roads
Two-spoke steering wheel takes some getting used to
Third row is still tight despite the GV80's size

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

The 2021 Nissan Armada is a big, comfortable brute that can tow the boat and haul the family all at once.

PROS
Spacious inside
Lusty V-8
Strong for towing
Good safety features
Value at the base level

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only
Gets expensive
Plodding moves
