Genesis GV70 named Motor Trend's SUV of the yearThe 2022 Genesis GV70 has been named Motor Trend's SUV of the year, beating a list of high profile contenders from Ford Motor and Stellantis, Hyundai Motor Group said Wednesday.
The GV70 outshined 35 competing models, such as the Ford Bronco, Ford Mustang Mach-F, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Wrangler 392 and 4xe in terms of design, sporty performance, value and safety features, Hyundai said in a statement.
Stellantis is a 50:50 joint venture recently set up through the merger of U.S. carmaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and French automaker PSA Groupe. Stellantis sells Jeeps.
The GV70 is the second SUV from Hyundai's independent Genesis brand after the GV80, which made headlines early this year when golf legend Tiger Woods survived a crash in a GV80.
In September, the compact SUV earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the U.S. auto safety organization.
