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 GV70 luxury midsize SUV is a real head-turner— sleek and sophisticated in its design. New for 2023, it's the EV version of the gasoline-powered GV70 and, except for the drivetrain, it shares virtually all of its exterior and interior features. The Electrified GV70 is driven by dual electric motors, good for 429 hp total. The drivetrain is strong and smooth, with a 10-second boost feature that can break the tires loose when fully applied. Overall, the GV70 delivers excellent handling, relaxed drivability, and a comfortable ride, although the steering feels a bit light and disconnected. All-wheel drive is standard. The Electrified GV70's interior is exceptionally stylish and classy, with upmarket materials and excellent fit and finish. A complete suite of advanced safety features is standard, including Highway Driving Assist, which keeps the vehicle at a set speed, a set distance from the car ahead, and centered in its lane. The Electrified GV70 comes with a fast-charging system that allows its battery to be charged from 10% to 80% in less than 20 minutes. That's a good thing, because one of its few downsides is a relatively limited range, an EPA-estimated 236 miles. The fuel-economy rating is good, however, at 91 MPGe. The only other noteworthy shortcoming is limited rear headroom, due to a low roofline and ride height.
