What Car? says...
In music, your first single can propel you to fame or flop and end your career. Likewise, as Genesis (the brand, not the band) launched the Genesis GV60 – its first dedicated electric car – it will have been hoping for a big hit.
Genesis couldn’t have picked a more competitive sector of the electric vehicle market to try to break into, though. Why? Well, the GV60’s size puts it up against some well-established electric SUV rivals.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? But is the Genesis GV60 good enough to beat its siblings? And what about other rivals, including the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the Jaguar I-Pace and the VW ID 4?
Well, we've been behind the wheel of the GV60 and over the next few pages of this review we'll tell you whether it's as good as it looks on paper. We'll cover all the important stuff, including performance and running costs, and tell you which power output and trim level make the most sense.
When you’ve decided which make and model of car is right for you, make sure you find the lowest price by searching our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. They have lots of attractive new electric SUV deals.
It may be the slowest GV60 (and the only one without four-wheel drive) but the Premium model still feels more than quick enough. Given that it’s also the cheapest to buy and has the longest range, it’s the one we’d choose.
The GV60 is available in a broad range of solid, metallic and even matt paint finishes. Take a look at the Genesis GV60 configurator for the full colour palette.
Genesis is relatively unknown in the UK so we expect slightly heavier depreciation than on the established premium German brands or Tesla. However, resale values should be stronger than on equivalent Kia and Hyundai models.
The GV60 is indeed sold in the UK. There aren't many showrooms (or 'studios' as Genesis calls them), but you can find your nearest studio online. If you decide to buy, don't forget to check the latest prices on our New Car Deals pages.
The GV60 is made by Genesis, which is part of the Hyundai Group (with Hyundai and Kia). The brand has been selling cars in the UK since 2021, but launched in South Korea back in 2015.
