"How it drives" comes under the still a lot to learn. I felt like I was fighting the wheel on the Interstate, as it wanted to do the steering. I'll be going through the set-up screen again today! Delivery by my dealer was excellent.

I was going to get the 4 cylinder, but would have to wait to get the prestige package, so I took the 6.
Mine is Goldcoast silver with the black interior. Drove through the rain all the way home, and it really doesn't show the dirt.

Also, my dealer sells at sticker price. I have heard of dealers jacking up the price.
Picked up my GV80 today in Bedford (Cleveland). Goldcoast Silver with the 3.5T.
Prestige package. Test drove it yesterday and decided not to wait for more incoming cars.
Still a lot to learn about it.

So @AJB how is it so far? Can you post more pics? Any first thoughts on how it drives? etc.
Well the funny part is I drove it home on Monday afternoon in traffic, it was only a 20 minute drive and I haven't driven it since! It's been in the garage and I've been learning the technology, setting it up to my liking. There's a lot of technology to learn.
I already drove a test GV80 with the Prestige Package and 3.5TT so I already knew about its performance. As their advertising states, it has "Athletic Elegance" and I agree. It's not the fastest crossover out there but a 13.9 second quarter mile and top speed of 149 mph is ample. It's very quiet with some nice exhaust sound to hear. The 22" wheels do give it a harder ride but not by much. The torque kicks in very early, a lot of power. I look forward to getting her on an open highway and see how she feels.

Very nice! Love that diamond-quilted interior so much!

Keep us all posted if you find any tech features you really love. I do think that
s the biggest learning curve with these new cars. So much tech!

You'll be happier with the Prestige Package with the 3.5TT. I purchased mine at sticker price minus the dealer prep, I wouldn't pay for that (dealer prep), it's a rip off. When I ordered mine back in early August I told my dealer I wouldn't pay the dealer prep and if they were going to make an issue of it I would just order my GV80 at another dealership, end of story, they dropped it.

So there's so much technology with the Prestige Package I actually burned a quarter tank of gas sitting in my garage and sometimes driveway familiarizing myself and setting it up to my liking. That's how long it took to get through it all!
