Hi everyone - I got my GV80 Advanced Plus 3.5T AWD with White and Dune interior yesterday. Put on about 100 miles so far through different road conditions and I enjoyed the ride very much. This is my first Genesis since I’ve been a long time MBZ and Lexus owner. Congrats to the Genesis design team for a well crafted SUV. Well done!!!

Welcome to the forum @Lam_GV80_SanDiego! How do you find the GV80 compares to some of the Mercedes and Lexus' that you've owned?

I personally think the GV80 styling are better then the RX350. Full LED lights Red/Pink wrap around the back, side LEDs, Quad LEDs front, chrome on the side, front, back etc... the interior is luxury with well made materials. I particularly like the knobs. Even though this is an SUV but the ride is comfortable and the cabin is quite. The 3.5T (375HP) can really move when you need to pass someone. All in all, good SUV but thousands of dollars less than BMW X5, MBZ GL450, ...

I agree with you about the RX350. The GV80 is so much better looking. Lexus needs to ditch the gaping mouth grille asap.

Welcome @Lam_GV80_SanDiego.

What has gas mileage been like for you so far? Any likes/dislikes?
I drove 200 miles in 4 days that I had it so not a big sample. I average about 16 mpg. I think this is because I was testing the 3.5 TT pickup and acceleration up the hill, stop and Go etc..,I am also iding with engine on the play around with the setting. The mileage will get better as I settle into my daily driving routine. Personally, I am good with 19-20 mpg combined hey/city driving. This is a fun car to drive. Just wanted to enjoy myself

Exactly, it wasn't designed or intended to be an economy car.

1500 miles so far on my Adriatic blue/dune Advanced Plus here in Florida, all good, gas mileage is about 19 to 20 Mpg combined where my Audi Q7 typically got 23 combined Mpg but not broken in yet, otherwise superior car in every way.
