Genesis didn't appear in our 2023 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, although being the luxury arm of parent company Hyundai should inspire some confidence - the Hyundai Kona and Ioniq models finished 11th and 16th respectively on the list of the best 75 cars to own.

Industry crash-test body Euro NCAP awarded the G80 a full five-star rating, with a 91 per cent score for adult safety, 87 per cent for child protection and a reassuring 91 per cent mark for on-board safety assist technology.

All models include Smart Cruise Control (SCC) and a range of driver ‘Assist’ features: blind-spot collision-avoidance, lane keeping, forward collision-avoidance, intelligent speed limit, lane following and highway driving are all standard.

All Genesis models are to be sold through bespoke stores rather than the usual dealer outlets, with a concierge-style service available to arrange delivery to your home address.

Warranty and servicing

Genesis offers a Care Plan for all of its model ranges that brings together warranty cover and servicing under one banner. The package includes a five-year warranty and free servicing with a limited mileage of up to 50,000 miles. When your car is due an inspection, Genesis will arrange to collect your vehicle, perform any necessary work and return it to an agreed location. A courtesy car will also be made available while your car is off the road.
