Genesis GV70 Wins 2024 Award


• GV70 / Electrified GV70 take top honours in awards

• GV70 chosen as Best Compact Luxury SUV for second year in a row

Markham, ONT. (January 18, 2024) – The winners of the 2024 Awards were announced today, with Genesis Motors Canada taking home another accolade.  The 2024 Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 took top honours in awards, being chosen as Best Compact Luxury SUV for the second year in a row.

After evaluating and considering every single new vehicle that’s available for sale in Canada, more than 20 automotive journalists from all over the country place their votes in over 30 categories. Overall, 12 key criteria are thoroughly analyzed - including design, innovation, engineering excellence, quality, and safety. Perhaps most importantly, the jury votes for vehicles they would feel confident recommending to their own family and friends.

The Awards are considered by consumers to be among the most trusted and comprehensive automotive awards in Canada, with winners being chosen for setting a benchmark for their respective segments.

“As the Genesis lineup continues to expand into new segments and we continue along our ambitious journey towards electrification, we are very pleased that our newly launched models are so well received by the most respected experts in the industry,” 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. In this increasingly competitive segment, they agreed that the compact luxury SUV continues to have what it takes to stand out ahead of the crowd. The Electrified GV70 builds upon this formula, but without a traditional internal combustion engine. Robust electric all-wheel drive propulsion provides unrelenting acceleration and balanced handling, which is wonderfully complemented by a smooth, serene driving experience that is well suited to a luxury vehicle. 

“The Genesis GV70 and Electrified GV70 embody the overall excellence that our expert jury is looking for when voting on the best vehicles,” says Editor-in-Chief Jodi Lai. “The lineup’s winning combination of style, driving dynamics, and attention to detail is something Genesis can be proud of and the fact that this is a repeat win cements the GV70 lineup as one that’s tough to beat.”
