Comments

The Genesis GV70 experienced difficulties with NH3 control in the WLTC+ test with cold engine start. In the same test, NOx emissions increased, leading to an even lower score. In general, the vehicle produces a number of particles close to the upper rating thresholds and scores poorly in terms of particle control. In the motorway test, the Genesis fails to control CO emissions and the whole test result is set to zero due to gross exceedance of the allowed CO output.

Comments

The Genesis GV70 is a heavy petrol SUV and this is strongly reflected in its consumption values. With 9.9 l/100 km needed for the cold test and 11.3 l/100 km on the motorway, this approximately 2 ton vehicle does not even collect 1 point.

Comments

Due to the very high gasoline consumption and the addition of the upstream greenhouse gas emissions for the production and supply of the fuel, the car does not manage to score any points in the greenhouse gas index. At the WLTC+ cold test, 58 g/km CO2-equivalent coming from the upstream processes are added to the measured 217 g/km CO2 from the tailpipe. Considering the small amount of other climate damaging gases from the tailpipe (N2O and CH4), the total number appears to be 277 g CO2-eq/km, which is fairly high.

Our verdict

The Genesis GV70 is a compact luxury crossover and the brand's second SUV model, launched in September 2021. It is tested here with the 2.5 liter turbocharged engine, coupled to a gasoline particulate filter (GPF). Unfortunately, the WLTP figure is already a thirsty 9.7 liters/100 km. In our test we reached 9.9 liters, reflecting poor fuel economy. The car scores well in the area of laughing gas (N2O) and methane (CH4), but its high CO2 emissions lead to no points in the greenhouse gas index. Pollutant emissions show good results for CO under low engine load only, acceptable for NOx, but particulate number just enough to meet Euro 6d standards although the vehicle is equipped with GPF. An improvement of CO and NH3 'ammonia', especially under motorway conditions, would increase the score in the Clean Air Index. In terms of character, the Korean is a full-bodied cruiser of the old breed – in the positive sense regarding price, equipment and safety (5 stars in Euro NCAP's safety assessment). In Green NCAP's environmental assessment, however, the vehicle receives only one out of the five possible stars.
