Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Genesis GV60 really comes into its own when you step inside and sit down. In fact, the materials and design features make it feel more like you’re stepping through the door of a concept car than something you can actually buy. One example is the crystal ball on the centre console that flips upside down to reveal the drive selector as soon as you thumb the starter button.

Digital instruments and a head-up display are standard on all models, both of which show driving info (the speed limit and so on), media and navigation functions. The head-up display is configurable, and there's an 'augmented reality' navigation function that puts sat-nav directions in your line of sight.

One visibility feature that isn't particularly helpful is the optional ‘digital’ camera mirrors, which were specified on our Sport Plus test car. The video they show is clear, but you don’t get the same depth of view as with the standard-fit traditional mirrors, and it can be hard to tell how close other road users are. What’s more, the chunky plastic housing around the screen on the driver’s side tends to reflect sunlight straight into your eyes. 

In better news, the materials used throughout the interior give the GV60 a proper premium feel, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find any hard or scratchy plastics anywhere inside. Instead, most of the surfaces are covered with soft-touch materials, synthetic leathers and attractive metals. It’s not necessarily better built than the Hyundai Ioniq 5 or Kia EV6 but it does feel more special.

Infotainment wise, Genesis gives you a 12.3in touchscreen infotainment screen that’s positioned high on the dashboard and angled slightly toward the driver. The software is similar to what you’ll find in the GV60’s siblings, meaning that it is fairly intuitive and reacts quickly to all your inputs.

Thankfully, unlike many modern cars, you don’t have to operate the system solely through the touchscreen because the GV60 gives you lots of shortcut buttons, physical volume controls and a rotary controller next to the drive selector that lets you scroll through the various menus. Those options mean that it’s far less distracting to use on the move than almost all direct rivals.
