Great product noticed. The Genesis brand has rocketed high in public awareness thanks to its standout lineup of vehicles, including previous 10Best winners such as the fun-loving G70 sports sedan and the luxurious GV80 utility vehicle.

The latest model to earn our accolades is the GV70 compact SUV. It combines comfort, athleticism, and refinement with artful, high-end design. Like all Best 10 winners, the GV70 offers impressive value, in this case beating its rivals from BMW, Jaguar and Porsche by thousands of dollars.

Two satisfying powertrains are available, starting with a 300-hp turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that can send the GV70 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. Work your way up to the more powerful 375-hp twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6, and 60 mph arrives in 4.6 seconds like a sports car. Both powerplants offer a smooth but muted engine sound that keeps the cabin quiet.

Handling may be less sharp than another 10Best winner, the Porsche Macan, but the GV70 holds up to the daily grind and keeps us smiling during our grueling 10Best evaluation loop. Opt for a more powerful engine, and the GV70 is equipped with adaptive dampers that let the driver decide which personality to unlock. In its most comfortable setting, the suspension fits but never floats. Switch drive mode to Sport Plus, and the GV70 is ready to rush (even activates the launch control program).

The GV70 ticks the boxes buyers expect in this class, such as space for four adults, an exemplary fit and finish, a powerful engine and cargo space worthy of being stored in a large box. This Genesis exudes luxury, and its undeniable desirability makes it a welcome addition to our Top 10 list. It really has something for everyone, even car enthusiasts like us.
