AutoGuide is a trusted source for all things automotive, providing the latest news and reviews for vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. Each year, the editorial team at AutoGuide chooses its top picks in a variety of segments. For the 2021 list, two Genesis models were recognized as the best of the best.
The 2021 Genesis G80 was named the Luxury Car of the Year by AutoGuide. As the model that helped launch the Genesis brand in 2015, the G80 is the signature in luxury. What helped the G80 stand out was its combination of power under the hood, its calm and smooth ride, and its long list of premium materials and features inside. When describing the 2021 G80, AutoGuide managing editor Kshitij Sharma noted, “The G80 is a phenomenal car as it strikes the perfect balance between power, drivability and luxury.”
AutoGuide also named the 2021 Genesis GV80 the Luxury Utility Vehicle of the Year on its list. Having debuted just last year, the GV80 is “a breath of fresh air in the mid-size luxury segment,” according to AutoGuide. The GV80 was praised for similar reasons as the G80, as the SUV offers many high-end amenities, even on its base trim. But the editors at AutoGuide also appreciated some of the available first-class features like the 21-speaker Lexicon® sound system and active noise cancellation.
We could go on about how incredible the G80 and GV80 are, but it’s better if you experience them for yourself. Visit us at Genesis Downtown in Toronto to take either for a test drive.
