The Genesis GV70 3.5T Sport was rated as the best SUV by Car and Driver, an American automotive magazine, surpassing the BMW X3 M40i and Lexus RX350 F Sport, Hyundai Motor said Friday.

Car and Driver evaluated these three cars based on four categories, including vehicle, powertrain, chassis and experience.

Genesis GV70 3.5T Sport took the throne with a total score of 213 out of 240, followed by BMW X3 who scored 205, and Lexus RX350 178.

The new luxury compact crossover under the Genesis brand was able to gain a competitive advantage over the other two cars by achieving a high score of 91 in the vehicle category, including evaluation of driver comfort, ergonomics and interior and exterior styling.

“Genesis did its homework and produced a winner. Beautiful design throughout, solid performance, beyond its class,” explains Car and Driver.

The GV70 was previously named MotorTrend SUV of the Year 2022 and Best SUV Overall at this year’s AutoTrade Awards.
