Private buyers looking at the Genesis GV70 might be tempted by the price, long warranty, five-year servicing package and high-level of standard equipment, but the Audi Q5 is still our choice for its smoother, quieter engines and far better ride. Company car users will want to look elsewhere, because rival large SUVs with plug-in hybrid technology are far less costly for benefit-in-kind tax.

Entry-level Premium Line comes with a large 14.5in infotainment screen including sat-nav and rear-view camera, all-around parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, and leather trim. Safety-conscious buyers will appreciate standard automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assistance, blind-spot monitoring, traffic-sign recognition and adaptive cruise control.

This 207bhp diesel engine takes the GV70 up to motorway speeds with relative ease, delivering plenty of low end shove and a linear amount of power across the rev range. It’s not nearly as refined as the equivalent engine in the Audi Q5, though.
