Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
As a cash purchase, the Genesis GV60 looks like an expensive option, and the entry-level Premium version costs considerably more than the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Skoda Enyaq iV and slightly more than the Kia EV6.
Granted, you do get a much more pleasant interior and both the Ioniq 5 and Enyaq iV get smaller batteries (meaning you won’t go as far on a single charge). The EV6, on the other hand, matches the GV60’s 77.4kWh battery and the fast-charging capability but promises a range of more than 300 miles regardless of which version you choose.
Likewise, both the GV60 and Genesis as a brand are too new to have featured in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey, so we don’t have data on either yet. Even so, Genesis’ sister brands Hyundai and Kia came third and ninth out of 30 manufacturers featured in the survey.
The GV60 comes with a five-year unlimited mileage warranty to give you peace of mind. It also comes with five years’ free servicing and five years’ free over-the-air (OTA) updates.
