Review

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 diesel engine and far better ride. Company car users will want to look elsewhere, as 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.

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.
