(February 16, 2024) – A month after being voted as the Best Compact Luxury SUV, the Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 have now been awarded Best Overall SUV in Canada for 2024 by Following the announcement of a category win, the GV70 was among the overall Grand Prix winners announced at a private ceremony to present the 2024 Awards.

The Electrified GV70 was launch in 2023 as a fully-electric version of the award-winning SUV, offering consumers more options for a luxury utility vehicle that suits their needs and exceeds their expectations.

“A great deal of care and attention has gone into the development of the GV70,” says Eric Marshall, director of Genesis Motors Canada. “We are both humbled and grateful to the team of voting jurors for recognizing our achievements and presenting us with such significant awards.”

The GV70 compact luxury SUV won its category in 2023 and was once again selected as the best in the segment for 2024.  The vehicle impressed the jury once again with its winning combination of styling, composed yet dynamic driving sensibilities, luxurious interior, and intuitive integration of technology.
