The 2022 Genesis GV70, Synonymous with Relaxing and Enjoyable Driving

By Lupita Colmenero

If you have the opportunity, as I did, to make the drive from Brooklyn, NY, to Canaan, Connecticut, be prepared to experience everything this gorgeous piece of automotive engineering has to offer. It makes you feel right and ready for the adventure. From the starting of the engine to acceleration to maneuver, the car reads you and allows you to handle its features with confidence and assurance of trusting responses. With an easy-to-handle rotary knob with five positions to command the driving and its intelligent controls to adjust the climate with capacitive touch and audible and tactile feedback, and intelligent “masking” of bottoms to prevent misuse, your ride in the 2022 Genesis GV70 is unique.

If a brand sells over 4000 units in less than a month, you better check it out; it must have something good. I grew to love Korean cars after owning a Kia Sorrento for over three years. There is something that immediately distinguishes the quality the brand has to offer. Even though the Genesis brand is not widely known for many, there is no doubt the Genesis GV70 is making a notorious re-entry into the market. Its elegant design, either standard or sport, is appealing, and it takes a short drive to notice how it catches the eyes on the road. Several details in its design are unique to this brand. For example, the quad rear lamps, the upper half is clean and simple, focusing on the Genesis name and its vertical exhaust with a wide stance. The Genesis GV70 is dynamic, sporty and elegant, in both standard and sports models. The interior is delightful, comfortable, spacious, practical, easy to maneuver, and accessing all its commands with a touch of a finger or voice commands is impressive.

An appealing futuristic touch is the ambient lighting you can program in the dash and center console. It goes in perfect harmony with the leather seats and suede inserts around the interior. You can enjoy a ride of 300 HP on its 2.5L inline 4-Cylinder Turbo, or up to 375 HP on the 3.5L V6 Twin Turbo, with a fuel economy of 22/28/24 or 19/25/21 (city/highway/combined), respectively. The Eco/Comfort Eco/Sport/Sport +/Custom drive modes are quite a delightful experience. The launch Control mitigates wheel spin to make the best of the take-off acceleration and activate the variety of its drive modes.  To experience the fascinating technology, safety features, and the Genesis Connected services the Genesis GVT70 offers, visit a Genesis dealership and ask for a test drive. You will enjoy it.
