  2. Me and my wife love Auto RegenBraking Level 1(in GV60). It's like an ICE car feeling and can secure fuel economy without much effort.

  3. Great car and in white it looks less huge than it is.

    I think it's great that you clearly state the benefits of fan control and frankly I find BMW's i-Drive system far superior to current solutions.

    Touch will be cool when we achieve a fully autonomous driving environment.

    I would certainly choose this car over my current E-Class – the controls are annoying, however I need a station wagon and at just under 6'4" a bit more headroom. I'm sure the next generation will deliver.

  4. I love that you cover more korean cars now. We germans can really learn now one or two things from them. They really make superb cars now

  5. I don’t love how the back looks like it’s sagging but overall it’s gorgeous, also your reviews are on another level, good job!

  6. Thanks for the great vid, Thomas and AG team! Can you kindly say if this Genesis will be available for sale in Europe? If yes, when and at what prices? (Say, for Germany)

  7. Looking good Thomas. I really like the color combination you are wearing and it goes well with the car you reviewed 🙂

  8. 12m turning radius isn't so bad, considering Ioniq5 do just as bad 🙂
    OnePedal driving: I'm team predictability! (also why I don't like when Tesla Autopilot get so unpredictable)

    23:00 maybe those are actually 2 different steps:
    first energy is regenerated from the motion,
    then it get into recuperation (either in capacitors, compressed air, or battery packs)

  9. the only thing they got righ for me is putting the charge port in the front, but its terrible that they have not got animal cruelty free materials. and alsoi would think that its way too expensive. But as always a great review Thomas.

  10. I am glad I can see from the video that this is the real Thomas, the unique Thomas. Not the fake-robot-hologram one!

  11. Interesting that the EV sears are less comfortable. By design or unintended consequences? Curious.

  12. Big fail with tall drivers! On a vehicle this big I consider that a Do Not Buy.

    I'm 21 months into ownership of an M3 LR and stil loving it. Lack of buttons and switches are a big, big plus and music has again become my primary interest when driving with this beautiful sound system.
    The sense of freedom from normal vehicle concerns just doesn't go away.

    Just the easiest vehicle to live with I've ever owned and your thinking about cars changes in a huge way.

  13. I love the front charging port, just like my E Niro. Unfortunately I am 6’5” so I am sure I won’t fit.

  14. Why oh why did they not bring a v6 to Europe? I would be the first one to get a g70 shooting brake. Only stinger warms my heart, but it's not a g70 though…

  15. WATCH OUT FOR SPAM/FAKE ACCOUNTS.

  16. That's not the Bentley brand logo, but most certainly the Chrysler logo! But could also be Aston Martin or MINI. Almost as bad as the "Rich" brand rip-off logo by Chery. Come on Hyundai..

  17. I always appreciate your thorough reviews about ride quality and driving tech assessments while driving. I'm a massive fan of yours. Thank you. With that said, I wonder, compared to the Mercedes EQE 350, which one is quieter when you drive 65 ~ 70 mph? That's the speed people drive in California on the Freeway. I love the car running as silently as possible. EQS is the most desirable EV sedan, but it is out of my budget.
