I have a 3.5 Prestige with about 3.5k miles. I absolutely love the car, how it drives and the luxury of the interior, basically everything…except the MPG.
I’ve always had the worst MPG in both eco and comfort modes - around 12/13 MPG. I knew I wasn’t getting great mpg since virtually all of my driving is around New York City - mpg efficiency has never bothered me or was a consideration when buying cars.

For the first time since I got the car, I had a long road trip where it was all highways - and was pleasantly surprised that I was getting around 23 MPG.
Moral of the story is that I thought the listed MPG for the GV80 was just inaccurate - but confirmed that the terrible mpg was really a function of NYC. In other words, they should have a separate mpg rating for NYC ;)

I also have the 3.5 Prestige, and loved the vehicle but was a little disappointed with the MPG. I live in a hilly area of Georgia and I averaged 13-15. I just completed an 1100 mile road trip to our summer home on Cape Cod. My average was 23.4 MPG. Couldn't be happier. The car was load to the brim with everything we need to bring and two passengers plus two dogs.

FWIW, a few owners that racked up 8k miles collectively average at 19.4 mpg

Here's a detailed view:
View attachment 1941
3 Vehicles, (2) 3.5L and (1) 2.5L
The second 3.5L person(melon10) doesn't appear to be entering their fuel up miles correctly as their miles per fill up looks to be missing fill ups. This can skew the averages...
