Hyundai Ioniq 5 v’s Genesis GV60 – Basic premium, or premium basic?

From AutoEV.

Not that long ago, a Hyundai was a car that represented good value for money, no frills, basic motoring. Now, however, some are priced to compete with prestige brands such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. But would you spend more on a car with a Hyundai badge than one with a BMW one? If that wasn’t for you, you could consider a Genesis, the new premium manufacturer that is part of the Hyundai group. But for the same money as a basic Genesis, you could get a range-topping Hyundai, which underneath, shares many components. And as research shows, today’s buyers are less bothered about the prestige of a badge, and more concerned with sustainability and environmental issues. So, does it matter? Are you better off with a range-topping Ioniq 5 Namsan Edition with all the luxury trappings, or a basic Genesis GV60 Premium for the same money? After all, how different can they actually be? Time to find out by putting them through the road test actual buyers are trusting when it comes to choosing their next electric vehicle – the AutoEV one.

AutoEV – all electric, all independent.
