I have read multiple reviews that say ride quality is very harsh for a luxury SUV. I was planning on quiet non jarring ride. Has anyone driven a US spec vehicle yet?

Yah, it's my daily driver
There are no problems with the suspension. Everyone has a subjective opinion as to what they feel is comfortable and what they would like the feel, steering, and suspension to feel like. The GV80 has several shortcomings but for me the suspension is great. I can moderately dial in the suspension between luxury or sport mode. The GV80 is a heavy car which is typical for a luxury vehicle and considering the weight the GV80 drives pretty good. Slightly softer ride than my Nissan Rogue, much quieter, brakes well and smooth.

Just took a test drive. Worth all the hype. Very quiet, smooth, powerful. No apparent flaws that I could see. Not a sport suv, but a luxury suv.

Just test drove a GV80 prestige today coming from a G70 sport. It’s a very serene drive. Suspension is relatively soft and I preferred it stiffened up in sport mode. Overall I was quite pleased. My only / main criticism is that the steering is very light. Again I preferred it in sport mode but even that wasn’t quite enough.

Yeah Genesis seems to be making a clear distinction that the GV80 is the luxury SUV and the GV70 is the sporty one.
