The Genesis GV80 combines an excellent Euro NCAP safety score with a smooth diesel engine and plenty of kit for the money. It can’t compete with the best German alternatives as an all-round package, though.

You’ll need to upgrade to Luxury Line trim if you want genuine leather seats, heated rear seats and rear wood trim on the dashboard. We’d stick with cheaper Premium Line, though.

With 274bhp, the diesel doesn’t have quite as much outright power at the petrol but it pulls much harder from low revs. It also has six cylinders (the petrol has four) so it’s smooth – indeed it runs equivalent diesel versions of the Q7 and X5 close for how well it isolates you and your passengers from noise and vibration.
