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.

Feeding 300bhp to all-four wheels, the 2.5T petrol is certainly quick and gets you from 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds, matching the Audi Q5 45 TFSI. Performance at low and mid revs is good but you’ll find that you have to work the engine quite hard to get the best out of it, causing a fair amount of engine noise.
