The all-new Genesis GV70 immediately jumps to the top of the small luxury SUV segment.

The 2022 Genesis GV70 is an all-new small luxury SUV that enters a crowded and highly competitive field. Direct rivals include the Acura RDX, BMW X3, Lincoln Corsair, Mercedes-Benz GLB, and Volvo XC60. Available with a choice of turbocharged four-cylinder or a turbocharged V6 engine, every GV70 comes standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Acceleration with either engine is impressive, though it’s the V6 that really scoots the GV70 down the road with authority. Unfortunately, fuel mileage is not exactly a bragging point. In the plus column, the GV70 comes loaded with comfort, tech, and driver-assist features. It also has a roomy cabin that looks every bit like a premium vehicle. The infotainment system has clear menus and quick response times, though it’s worth noting the touchscreen requires quite a reach for the driver.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Genesis GV70

What We Like

Acceleration: The 300-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder that’s standard is absolutely fine and has no problem motivating the GV70. However, the strong acceleration and added passing power of the 375-hp turbo V6 are pretty addictive. That, combined with a supple ride and precise steering, makes the GV70 a driving delight.

Standard feature content: Sometimes even luxury vehicles make you climb to higher trims and add pricey option packages to get many sought-after features. Not so the GV70. It comes standard with a wide array of comfort items and tech touches, not to mention many driver aids like blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic warning.

Interior space: Genesis did an excellent job crafting a world-class cabin filled with high-quality trim. Better still, there’s plenty of stretch-out space in both rows. Cargo volume is equally good, with approximately 28 cubic feet of room behind the folding split rear seatback.

What Needs Improvement

Fuel economy: Yes, we love the performance of the turbo V6. But we wouldn’t mind a few extra mpg either. Opting for the GV70’s more powerful engine means more frequent pit stops to refuel. The turbo-four is better, though still only about average for this size of SUV.
