Genesis GV60 SUV - Interior & comfort
Genesis GV60’s interior is luxurious and well-equipped, with twin screens as standard
Comfort is a strong point for the Genesis GV60. It’s at its best in entry-level Premium trim, which has smaller wheels than the high-spec Sport Plus version. Although the top-spec car has fancy suspension tech to help it be smoother over bumps, the cheaper model is simpler, lighter and more comfortable.
You don’t get much noise in the cabin from the motor, so the only intrusive noise comes from high motorway speeds, where wind and tyre noise are audible. You can add clever noise-cancelling tech to combat this (as part of a Bang & Olufsen stereo upgrade), so the GV60 is really quiet inside overall.

The GV60’s interior is excellent – it feels very well made and the materials are high quality, so it justifies its high price tag quite well. The plush steering wheel feels good to hold, and contrast stitching for the leather seats is another nice touch.
The interior is similar in some ways to the Kia EV6 that the GV60 shares parts with, but that’s no bad thing – parts such as the twin 12.3-inch display screens and useful centre console are really impressive to look at and have plenty of functionality as well. It’s more stylised than the Kia, though – there are some touches that won’t be for everyone, the same as with the exterior styling, but it has its own personality and some buyers will love that.
The GV60 range is nice and simple; there are three trim levels and each has its own equipment as well as a different electric motor set-up. You can read about the technical details on the previous pages covering performance and economy.
Premium is the entry-level model, and it comes with LED headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, two 12.3-inch infotainment screens (one in place of traditional dials and the other in the centre), an electric tailgate and a reversing camera.
There’s loads of safety kit, too, including adaptive cruise control, forward-collision assist with AEB, blind spot warning, lane follow assist and rear cross-traffic assist.
Sport models get larger 20-inch alloys and Sport Plus versions also have larger alloys and different interior trim. It means the entry-level car is the best value for money.
The GV60 has two 12.3-inch screens, no matter which version you go for, and they work really well. There are five USB ports and wireless phone charging, too, so you can make the most of your smart devices and enjoy Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity for apps and navigation. Of course, there’s a built-in sat-nav as well.
The graphics on the screen are sharp and although they are similar to Hyundai and Kia’s layouts, this means it’s easy to use. It’s responsive and has all the features you need, so the GV60 scores highly for technology.
