Actually feeling out how the vehicle feels inside is key. The images I've seen of the GV80's third row have me a bit concerned -- I need to actually spend time in a GV80 vs. Telluride vs. Palisade and see how all of their interiors compare in person to determine which is roomiest or the most comfortable.That makes sense. I have a Honda Pilot right now. I considered an MDX when I got it, but the Pilot is just some much bigger inside.
I think we are still waiting for Genesis to release that figure. I searched again just now and don't see that figure anywhere. If anyone knows that dimension or has found a GV80 specs sheet yet, please chime in.Do you have 3rd row legroom specs for the GV80? Have they release those?
You're right, the GV80 should handle and drive better. That's important to me.guys the leg room is good enough for a child under the age of 7 most probably. Heck, you see that an adult can't even get their legs properly in there. Size wise, it's smaller than the full size SUV's of Hyundai and Kia. The Genesis is about the luxury and getting the ability for the larger engine. It's a RWD platform, so handling should be much better even in the AWD variant.
Can't go wrong with any of them.
Personally, I'm looking at the new GLE 450 or possibly the 350 (they give about 10% off come Oct when my Jag lease is up. I'm also looking at the Q8 and Jag F Pace S (have the current XFS now and love it). I may drop down with the market tumble to a CPO or a new Palisade's as they look great and for the money would be a nice value I think. I know Hyundai has poor leasing much of the time, so I'm not sure how that will play into my decision. I also worry about the GLE as this new model has so many things going wrong with it and that means I can't trust a CPO or demo. I could possibly look into the X5.
They are tightening up the suspension of the GV for the US market. I I'm not sure if it's the same for the Canadian one though. The best handling cars right now seem to be Porsche and Jag. It's why I got the Jag over the G80 Sport three years ago.You're right, the GV80 should handle and drive better. That's important to me.
The new GLE are fine vehicles, can't go wrong with one of those either. Does the F-Pace have a 3rd row? I didn't even think to add Jaguar to my radar, guess I'm not used to them having an SUV.
I also need to research more on the leasing and finance rates of all these vehicles. A friend of mine got a great deal on a Palisade, so I know deals are out there. He was so pleased with the Palisade that he went back to the dealer and bought a new Elantra for his college-aged daughter.
I read this Car and Driver comparison of 3-row SUVs, and the Telluride and Palisade came out on top for third-row room. Really not sure yet if I'll get a GV80 when the Telluride and Palisade are so well reviewed, we'll see!

Mazdas today are great cars to drive for the money. You see Mazda's commitment to driving dynamics reflected in all the reviews of the CX-9 -- it's one of the sharpest to drive in its class. But honestly, I'm not looking for the most responsive handling vehicle when I'm shopping in this class. I want comfort and luxury for driving the family and friends around. And the GV80 has potential to be the very top of the class. We just need reviews and time to explore one.No surprise there. That said, many of these magazines can be 'bought'. I do like MT most of the time and you can't beat what Hyundai is doing these days. I have been a big Mazda fan (first car I ever owned) and once they left Ford (like anyone else who has left them), they have become a really great car to drive for the money.
