Car Review: Leasing the All-New Genesis GV70

The luxury SUV market is fiercely competitive, but the new all-electric Genesis GV70 stands out for all the right reasons with its cutting-edge technology, sleek design, and impressive performance, this car could be perfect for you and your family.

Leasing this vehicle is a smart choice as it gives you a luxurious driving experience without the commitment of long-term ownership, a win-win that makes this car very much stand out from rivals.

The Genesis GV70 is one of the first true luxury brands to come out of South Korea and rivals the likes of Mercedes, BMW, and Audi.

It uses the very latest electric car technology with a 77.4 kWh lithium-ion battery and an advanced 800-volt architecture which means super-fast charging. On the right high-power charger, you can charge the car from 10 to 80% charge in just 18 minutes, with a fully-charged range of 283 miles.

The whisper-quiet electric motors produce 483bhp which will propel the GV70 from zero to 62mph in just 4.2 seconds when you engage the car’s boost mode. Four-wheel drive also provides plenty of grip and reassurance.

There are different power modes to suit the driver’s mood, with an e-Terrain mode should you want to venture off-road. There’s also an i-Pedal mode that enables the driver to use just one pedal when driving; lift off and the car can bring itself to a complete stop, which not only enhances relaxation behind the wheel but boosts efficiency by maximising the amount of energy that is sent back to the battery during braking.

Lightweight materials are used for the car’s bodywork, while electronically controlled suspension with Road Preview will use a front-facing camera to read the road ahead and adjust the adaptive dampers to cope with any upcoming obstacles like potholes or speed bumps.

The car has been developed in Europe by Albert Biermann who used to work for BMW on its famous, sporting M Cars. Biermann and his team developed the car at the famous Nurburgring racetrack in Germany and the surrounding roads to give the car a really sporty, European feel.

The natural quietness of an electric car is further enhanced by another new technology: Active Road Noise Cancellation, which uses microphones in the car and the car’s audio system to cancel the usual rumble produced by tyres. There are also triple-sealed door surrounds to keep things even quieter.

As you would expect from one of the world’s most advanced luxury cars, there are plenty of advanced driver assistance systems, including an adaptive cruise control that will keep the car in lane and a set distance from the car in front, and also automatically change lanes if it’s safe to do so. Other safety systems adapt to the driver’s style and mood.

Designed by former Bentley designer Sangyup Lee, its exterior design blends elegance and athleticism, creating a commanding presence on the road that’s ideal for an electric car, so it certainly stands out from the crowd just on first impressions alone.

As you step inside the vehicle you'll find a meticulously crafted interior that exudes luxury, with its dreamy and comfortable seating and its intuitive technology all contributing to an overall refined driving experience.

Genesis has prioritised comfort not only for the driver but for all passengers, too, with the high-up driving position that SUV buyers love.
The high-quality leather is super-sustainable using a bio-processed dye to protect the environment, while some interior components have been created with eco-friendly and recycled materials. For example, the standard headlining has been made from yarn made by processing recycled plastic bottles and waste nets.

One clever feature we particularly like is the doors that wrap around the lower sill of the car, so you don’t get your clothes dirty when you get in and out if there’s road grime along the bottom of the car.
You can also personalise the lighting effects within the car, while there’s the option of a full-length panoramic glass roof for a great view out and to let more light in.

The electric powertrain means the car has a totally flat floor to give more space, especially for rear passengers, while the boot offers 1,678 liters of space, with the rear seats folding down and split 60/40. There’s a useful 25-litre frunk under the bonnet that’s ideal for storing the GV70’s electric cables. You can even specify comfort seat packages in the front and back of the car with seat heating and cooling also available.

This vehicle boasts a user-friendly infotainment system with a 14.5-inch HD touchscreen system that’s both crystal clear and responsive, while the driver has a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster with a 3D display in front of them. There is dedicated EV information in all the displays, too, while the car’s software can be updated like a mobile phone with over-the-air updates.

The latest smartphone integration is fitted as standard, too.
Music lovers will enjoy the advanced Lexicon audio system with speakers also used to deliver virtual driving sounds that are linked to the car’s speed, accelerator position, and driving mode.

Perhaps one of the most advanced features, though, is the industry-first fingerprint recognition system that not only provides a biometric level of security but can also be programmed to a user’s profile to adjust the seat, steering wheel, head-up display, and navigation preferences.
As well as using the touchscreen for the infotainment, there’s also the Genesis Touch controller, which uses handwriting recognition for easy navigation and instruction entry.

Leasing the Genesis GV70 has many advantages. With leasing it can make it more affordable for some individuals without the hassle that comes with ownership. Leasing also provides the opportunity to drive a higher-end vehicle that may be out of your budget to purchase outright. It's crucial to carefully consider your circumstances and preferences before deciding if leasing is the right option for you.

In conclusion, the Genesis GV70 offers the highest level of luxury, performance, technology, and safety, which makes it a very attractive option for those considering a premium SUV and is undoubtedly a standout choice in the competitive luxury SUV market.
