ROAD TEST: 2022 Genesis GV70

Last year, Genesis launched the GV80, the first midsize luxury crossover SUV to be offered by Hyundai’s luxury division, by using the bones, so to speak, of its G80 midsize luxury-sport sedan. This year, Hyundai’s luxury division has done the same thing again, this time using the G70, its compact luxury-sport sedan, as the basis for the new GV70, its second luxury-sport crossover SUV.

Both aren’t the same as so many other luxury crossovers because neither of them is based on the bones of a front-wheel-drive car. They are both based on rear-wheel-drive cars — and that makes them handle and feel more like the RWD luxury-sport sedans they’re based upon.

ERIC PETERS has been test-driving vehicles and writing reviews for more than 20 years. He is a member of the International Motor Press Association.
