It is not easy to combine luxury and performance, especially with SUVs. High-performance vehicles can be too rough and too fast to be used on a daily basis as luxury drivers. However, smooth-riding, pampering drivers might not be enough to drive. Driving on winding roads is a pleasure. There’s also the model the 2022 Genesis GV70, which offers the luxury of a luxurious cabin and an exhilarating drive behind the wheel. We love the GV70 so much, that we named it our 2022 SUV Of The Year. The article below explains why.

The GV70 is a winner based on the 2019 Auto model-year review. The Genesis G70 sedan is the GV70. The 3.5T version that we tested had powerful powertrains, agile driving, and an exceptional interior design. other. On the Market: The model that we tested was the GV70 3.5T Sports Prestige model, which is the most expensive in the line.

The Numbers

Although Genesis does not have a sub-brand for performance electronics, its 3.5-liter V-6 engine is comparable to mid-performance models made by brands such as BMW, Audi, and Mercedes. The V-6 is a Korean SUV and produces 391 pound-feet of torque. It transmits that power through an 8-speed automatic transmission to all 4 wheels using the standard all-wheel-drive system. Sport Prestige models such as ours have a limited-slip rear differential with torque vectoring. This means that when power gets transferred to the rear axle it can distribute the force to either side, increasing agility.

Production figures are comparable with the BMW A3 X3M40i and Audi SQ5 as well as the Mercedes-AMG GLC43. Our test team found that the GV70 is slightly faster than the others in the 0-60 mph sprint. The Genesis can reach 60 in 5.4 seconds while the GLC43 takes 4.7. The Audi SQ5 is a close second to the Mercedes at 4.7 seconds. BMW’s X3 M40i, however, can reach the 60 mark in 4.8 seconds. It is not surprising that the quarter-mile speed is identical. The GV70 can travel this distance at 99.2 mph in 14.0 seconds. The German three can do it in under 13.5 seconds.

The GV70 is more responsive, powerful, and dynamic than the other three SUVs, both on the track and in real life. Driving enjoyment is enhanced by the bond between the driver of the vehicle and the driver. The GV70 will look great on canyon roads when Sport mode is on. The body roll is not too severe, the steering is responsive, and the power transfer is smooth and reliable. Although the eight-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly and holds the gears in place until they are needed, we wish it was a little quicker to downshift.

The suspension’s multiple modes are well-programmed and minimize the shock of entering your cabin. The 21-inch Sports Prestige wheels are not stiff or hard, but they are quiet and pleasant.

The Inside

Genesis interiors are one area where it has taken a new path than the rest. Genesis creates unique cabins for each of its vehicles. You’ll notice that the layouts, dashboards, and designs of GLC, Mercedes GLC, GLE, and GLE are almost identical. There are some differences between them if you compare them in GV70 from Genesis and GV80 from Genesis.

Inside the cabin, the GV70 features a classic oval design. This design was inspired by cross-sections of aircraft wings. These designs are visible on the dash, center console, doors and center console. This simple design change dramatically alters the experience in the GV70 compared with its competitors and is a testimony to the care that the designers put into their work. Both Genesis SUVs have common components, such as 14.5-inch touchscreens, buttons on the dash, and a glass selector. They still feel original and one-of-a-kind, which isn’t the case for many competitors.

The Sports Prestige model costs $64,045. It has all the features that you would want or need, including a plush suede headliner and a wireless charging port for your phone. The only thing that is missing is Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, which can only be accessed by a USB cable. The GV70 has features that few cars have like remote smart parking, which allows you to reverse the car or move it forward using the remote key. A system displays an image of the area in your blind zone when your turn signal activates on your vehicle’s side.
