Best family SUV interior

Genesis GV70 2.5 Turbo Luxury (Nappa Leather Pack)

Genesis may still be the new kid on the block, but it knows a thing or two about upmarket interiors. That’s not a surprise, though, when you consider that Bentley’s former design director now works for Genesis.

The Genesis GV70 is a prime example, especially when you specify the £2350 Nappa Leather Pack on top of Luxury trim. This replaces the already impressive interior materials with even softer Nappa leather and gives you a choice of two-tone colour schemes.

Other praiseworthy features include a rotary infotainment controller and sturdy metal switches; these not only feel great but are also easy to use while driving.

While it’s quick, the GV70 is thirsty on fuel, and its interior is far less practical than the cheaper Kia Sportage’s. But rivals such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3 don’t have quite such a rich ambience. You’d have to spend far more to match it.
