This is where the GV70 leaps ahead of its G70 sibling and potentially, much of its competition, with what is a highly distinctive, good quality interior. This cabin makes no apologies for the luxury leanings of this model. Gone are the anonymous centre console and grey plastics of the G70. In their place, leather, a round-the-cabin metallic highlight and a neat oval arrangement containing your climate controls. There are touch-sensitive bits, for your heated seats and so on but it all works quite well. In fact, everything you touch most often in this cabin feels high quality, from the much nicer steering wheel to the column stalks. There’s no impression that any of the controls were afterthoughts when it comes to design and build. We should say, our car came with the optional comfort seat (£1,470) and second-row comfort (£600) packs.
Gripes? They are minor. In places you’re less likely to focus on, the quality does drop off but it far from glares in your face. Those sleek looks somewhat dock the glasshouse, which might trouble some little ones more prone to car sickness. The optional sunroof (£1,460) might go some way to aiding that. The Saville Red of our car’s interior spec was also quite a bold choice and the touchscreen is a bit of a reach. Happily, you get a clicky, quality-feeling navigation wheel with which to control it.
