I am unable to even sit in a GV70, let alone test drive it. Supply is so low that they only take non refundable deposits
I'm sure it drives well but are the seats great? Everybody is different. My wife likes her Volvo seats but hates the Audi seats. They are built for different body types. We are not tiny people. And Audi seats seem snug
Any help appreciated

Hi Phillip
I'm 5'10" and 195.
I can only speak to the driver's seat.
It is the most comfortable seat I have ever sat in. But I don't think I have driven an Audi before.
I have the massaging seats. I don't find any hard spots. I like all the adjustability in them and find it to be a very comfortable seat. I love the bolster support on the sides. In Sport mode and over 80MPH the kind of Hug you. This feature I think is something you can turn on or off though.
Good luck!

I am very happy with the seats in my GV70 sport prestige. Driver seat has a lumbar adjustment, adjustment for the length of the driver's seat (for leg support) and you can adjust the bolster on the driver's seat depending on tight you'd like the seat. Up and down & back and forth movement seems to be significant. Ventilated seats work well, and the suede leather inserts do not get as hot in the sun and regular leather.

I have not been able to try the massaging feature, is it great or is it just ok? I believe it just comes in the Pretige Package.

I used the massage feature during my last long trip. It seemed to help after sitting in the seat a couple of hours. I wouldn't buy the car for this feature but I am glad they included it with sport prestige package.

I find the driver's seat too hard for long (over 2 hours) journeys. I use a supplementary seat cover to deal with the problem. I am not picky about soft seats -my other long journey vehicle is a 1993 Dodge truck and have no discomfort with that 30 year old bench seat !No cover required.

During my first and only long trip in the GV70, I turned on the massage feature.
It was great.
My previous Audi used air bags to create the same effect, but Genesis uses actual motors.
Needless to say, post Genesis massage, the driver seat has a protruding lump where my vestigial tailbone is/was...
A 2 hour drive is about my tolerance...
I fear mentioning to the dealer until the supply chain issues are sorted.
