Welp, I tried to test drive a GV70 today or possibly put a deposit on one en route.

Unfortunately their last GV70 was just sold, BUT luckily one of the consultants gave me a few minutes to play with one they still were working on. This was my first time seeing the GV70 up close and personal in the flesh.

Now, unfortunately, I couldn't drive it but I could sit in it, mess around with the controls, buttons, take some photos and get a feel for it.

Some thoughts:

1. Wow, this car has serious presence. Especially in the 3.5 Sport Prestige, the upgraded wheels and Sport appearance is downright powerful looking yet also very luxurious and unique.

2. I kinda already expected this but it must be reiterated: The materials and finish feel WAY above the segment it's in. I've been in several ~$60k vehicles before but this car absolutely feels like it's worth every penny and then some. It's one thing to see the videos and pictures, but then you feel the steering wheel, you see the screen, the feel the controls, you see the stitching...etc.

3. The Seville red interior is definitely a winner. Look, I have my heart SET on finding an Ultramarine blue interior GV70 3.5. However, if it's going to be a real pain in a neck to find, I'd have no issue with the red/black interior combo. I thought it'd feel like any other car I've seen with red interior colors but this feels and looks a lot different and I would definitely consider this interior choice, even though it's not my 1st option.

Overall--Even though I didn't get a chance to drive the car, judging on its proportions, what I've seen so far, I really don't see a 'need' to test drive it to know that it's what I want.

Now I just gotta frigging wait another 3-4 months until I can order the spec I really want or find a halfway reasonable enough dealer that isn't over1000 miles away that might have something close to it.

We've enjoyed having our ours, now sitting at 20,500 miles and I purchased it on November 17th with 9 miles on the odometer 馃お. With only 750 miles it took us on our great adventure to

Vegas...we arrived there Thanksgiving morning, 445am blaring Viva Las Vegas 馃ぃ ...We stopped in New Orleans, San Antonio and Las Cruces as resting points during our trip.... 2700 miles each way with all the detours due to road conditions. Also drove another 2k miles while in Vegas doing all the site seeing including a side trip to San Francisco. It performed great in all conditions... though I do wish the seats had a bit more cushioning.

To be honest I'd hold out for the ultramarine interior, while the red is nice it's a bit too much. The blue with red stitching and seatbelts really looks amazing.

Nice pics!!

Yeah, the FOMO bug has died down a little bit. Im about to hit 40,000 miles on my Alfa Romeo, just got new tires, and it鈥檚 been running great. I鈥檓 fine with waiting until the right spec comes in. Heck, maybe I鈥檒l get lucky and in 18 months, a lightly used lease 3.5 pops up with the UB interior!

Thanks 馃槑, we're definitely happy overall with our purchase. Normally I wait till the 2nd year of a vehicle being out so they correct most of the initial complaints that owners have. I would either purchase it new once the missing chip features are added back or find a nice used one that has it. The $200 discount on a new one is a joke considering the technology being lost.

Best wishes to you on your purchasing journey and many blessings to everyone 馃檹馃榾

@SimpsonTide985 Thanks for posting. I was lucky enough to test drive the 2.5t model before ordering mine on Jan 1. I ordered the Sport Prestige 3.5 Ununi white exterior color w/ the Ultramarine Blue interior. As of mid March my order hasn't been filled yet. My guess is I'll probably need to wait a total of 7 months. Just guessing. If any other people out there have a better time frame of their ordered & delivery time please post. Thanks

I have the Barossa Burgundy with the cream interior. I just love it and it is so fun to drive. Handle very well! I have the 2.0.

It's a pretty car to be sure.
But lots of us have issues and problems with the Tech.
NOT very user friendly and complicated to setup and use.
I would encourage a long test drive and playing with the tech.
