The Genesis GV70 lacks the powertrain options of luxury rivals.
Its closest competitor is the 2021 Volvo XC60 with its understated design, striking interior, and standard safety features, but the XC60 can also be had as a plug-in hybrid.
Aside from the redundant touchpad, the 2021 RDX gets most things right and passes for luxury on a budget.
With a warranty and features almost as good as the GV70, the Lincoln Nautilus rises above the fold with the comfiest seats, but the top Black Label trim nears $70,000.
The German trio of the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, as well as their coupe-like cousins, can be equipped as mild hybrids or slick performance crossovers that can scrape the six-figure ceiling.
