Jenny reviews the 2022 Genesis GV70 V6 3.5 twin-turbo with AWD Sport with the added luxury package. It’s the top offer in the GV70 lineup.
We have tested plenty of Genesis models and, honestly, they have been awesome. They don’t offer as many model options as the benchmark German brands like Mercedes, BMW, and Audi, but the top Genesis models were on par with luxury competitors with similar power.

The GV70 is the latest offering from Genesis and it has that problem that compact luxury SUVs have. They need to be relatively affordable, they are an entry-level luxury – but they also need to be packed with advanced goodies and great materials. This GV70 is! There is already plenty of interest surrounding it here in Australia and it lines up well against competitors like the Mercedes Benz GLC for an Audi Q5 or a BMW X3.
