To help members understand the latest automotive technology so they can purchase vehicles that best suit their needs, the Automobile Club of Southern California's Automotive Research Center (ARC) began testing and reviewing vehicles over a decade ago

For the 2024 edition, we include testing and ranking cars and light trucks with the latest technology, including having at least one advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) feature. In addition to vehicle evaluation, the guide covers a number of pertinent automotive topics in detail—for example, the latest advanced safety features, how to properly maintain your vehicle, and new vehicles coming to market in the next few years.

Overall Observations

The Electrified G80, new for 2023, swaps out the G80 midsize sedan's gasoline-powered drivetrain for 2 electric motors, a direct-drive transmission, and a battery pack. Offered only in the loaded Prestige trim, the Electrified G80 is an impressive car. Its efficient electric drivetrain provides quick acceleration, plenty of power, and an estimated 282 miles of range. Level 2 and DC fast-charging rates are impressively fast, and MPGe numbers are high. Genesis has the Electrified G80's roadworthiness dialed in, too. It delivers responsive handling and a comfortable ride, courtesy of an adaptive suspension. One-pedal regenerative braking is smooth and unobtrusive. The Electrified G80's sumptuous interior, replete with leather, open-pore wood, and aluminum, provides plenty of space for front-seat passengers. Overall interior fit and finish are excellent. A comprehensive set of ADAS features are standard, and plenty of other tech is included: active noise canceling and the capacity to power electric appliances outside the vehicle, among others. Criticisms are minimal. The battery pack intrudes on the interior space, raising the rear passenger floor and eliminating a couple of cubic feet of trunk space; rear visibility is compromised by thick rear roof pillars and a raised deck lid; and some exterior design elements—notably the large shield-shaped grille and rear end—are polarizing
