Hi everyone,just wanted to introduce myself, I just purchased a silver with vanilla beige interior , prestige. Can’t wait for it to get here, it’s sitting in Vancouver, dealer said it would take 2 weeks to make it to Edmonton. Now the painful wai5 begins.

I want the gv70 cause I like sportier rides, but I’mgoing to give th gv80 a good try any maybe it will surprise me. I have 2 kids as well so the extra row will come in handy for car pooling.

I was going back between the gv80 and the GLC AMG 43 , I really like the 43 performance but I’m a techy, and the gv80 has the most of car I researched(other than the Tesla’s of course)

so that’s my story..oh and anyone have the vanilla interior and if so, how is it holding up? I’m worried a little about it with kids 🥲

Oh and can someone confirm that Canada doesn’t have the digital key? Does the US get it? Not sure why we wouldn’t get it if the US has it?

I've heard people that have light colored leather on other vehicles complain about blue rub-off from jeans. They suggest wearing old jeans washed many times and if you still have rub-off, clean it with 50% Woolite and 50% water.

Congratulations on the GV80. I also purchased from Genesis Edmonton.
By digital key, if you mean the NFC (credit card size) key, then I recently asked Stephanie and was told that the Canadian Cars do not support it. Another disappointing difference between the US and Canadian Cars. I certainly dont fault Genesis Edmonton but I think Genesis Canada dropped the ball on a few features available else where but not in Canada.

The cynic in me believes the capability exists in the vehicle its just that Genesis Canada does not want to enable it - maybe add as a feature for the 2022.

Not sure if you plan on getting PPF but DJ recommended Liberty Autoworx to me and they did a great job. I would also recommend.

Welcome to the forum @Kevsim! You shouldn't be disappointed with the 3.5L V6 for power. It might not be like an AMG but it's solid. What were you driving before you ordered the GV80?

Congratulations! Yes I know the waiting seems like an eternity. I ordered mine the beginning of August and received it last week in December. Like you I ordered the Prestige Package with the 3.5TT. I absolutely love it! We have the beige/black interior but my wife and I don't have kids so it's staying super clean.
Best of luck and safe travels with your GV80!

Kevism I have owned my gold coast silver Prestige gv80, Beige/Black interior, for 2 months now and put 2200 mile on it. Driven through some snow storms in about 8 inches of blizzard like conditions and on some pretty rough roads in Michigan. We also own a ML 350 Mercedes and a BMW 750ix . the GV 80 both exterior and interior is exactly what sold me over the GLE 45 ( and i saved about $20K). The vehicle is nearly flawless across all comparable traits. The interior has had 0 issues with staining ( i did get the upholstery protection from zeibart) You need not be concerned with as it relates to the color of the leather. The vehicle has a rather stiff sporty ride similar to the X5. It handles surprisingly well .
Has plently of pick up . But its not a car that is going to run against a sports car or big V8. The autonomous driving is especially good. I wasn't prepared for that. It will not take you from Point a to point B with out your interaction like a telsa BUT for highway driving it is really good. I love this vehicle!

Only improvements I can see is
1 softer ride(maybe the 22 inch tires) its not harsh... just stiff
2 Larger gas tank , Averaging about 350 miles getting about 17 G per mile

Hope this helps !

I agree, it's probably the 22" wheels that make the ride a little stiffer. It's a compromise that you have to accept in exchange for the awesome looks of the 22" wheels. They really add a special touch to what is already a head turning vehicle.
The 3.5TT is definitely fast but I would have gone with a V8 option had there been one.
I agree the gas tank could have been a few gallons larger but not a big deal. Overall it's one **** of a vehicle, glad I purchased it.

Thanks for replies and the reassurance. I agree the styling and interior of the gv80 eventually beat out the performance of the glc.
I love the tech it comes with too.! I don’t think there is a better highway self driving system in a gas vehicle..

thanks guys ! I’ll go back to staring at the calendar waithing for my deliveryday😂
