Review of the 2022 Genesis GV70 AWD Sports Prestige

2022 Genesis GV70 3.5T AWD Sport Prestige

Luxury SUVs are gaining popularity rapidly and have become the top choice for many car buyers. Genesis has now entered this competitive market, facing off against established names like BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.

I recently had the opportunity to test drive the 2022 Genesis GV70 3.5T AWD Sports Prestige. Some standout features include a powerful V-6 engine that offers outstanding performance, a panoramic sunroof, and a top-of-the-line 16-speaker Lexicon sound system.

Exterior

The exterior of the 2022 Genesis GV70 3.5T AWD Sports Prestige exudes luxury, with a design reminiscent of other major SUVs. The 19-inch wheels provide stability on various terrains while maintaining a comfortable ride height. The design competes well with its counterparts but at a more affordable price point.

Interior

The interior of the 2022 Genesis GV70 3.5T AWD Sports Prestige is where it truly shines. Opting for the advanced trim offers a seamless transition from the exterior design, along with a spacious 10.75-inch infotainment screen and ample legroom. The advanced trim also includes ambient lighting, leather upholstery, and a remote self-parking system, giving it a competitive edge against top luxury brands.

Engine/Powertrain

Equipped with a standard twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, the GV70 also offers a smaller turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder option. The V6 model delivers an impressive 375HP and can accelerate from zero to 60MPH in just 4.9 seconds. The vehicle boasts a fuel efficiency of 25 MPG on the highway and 19 MPG in the city, making it a practical yet powerful choice.

Special Options/Package

The base model of the 2022 Genesis GV70 3.5T AWD Sports Prestige offers excellent value, but upgrading to the Sports Prestige Package adds luxury features like 21-inch alloy wheels and an electronic slip differential. Additional perks include heated seating and advanced safety features, making it a compelling choice for those seeking extra comfort and convenience.

Safety

While not yet awarded top safety honors, the GV70 3.5T AWD Sports Prestige includes advanced safety features like Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, Forward Attention Warning, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. These features enhance driver awareness and responsiveness on the road, adding an extra layer of security.

Verdict

The 2022 Genesis GV70 3.5T AWD Sports Prestige offers a unique blend of luxury, performance, and value. With a starting price of $52,600.00, it provides a more affordable alternative to its competitors. Fully loaded with upgrades, the MSRP reaches around $64,045.00, offering a comprehensive package that competes well in the luxury SUV segment.

Overall, the 2022 Genesis GV70 is a standout model for the year, combining style, performance, and advanced features to deliver a compelling driving experience.
