When embarking on your winter journey, ensuring safety, comfort, and a touch of elegance is paramount. This is precisely what we accomplished during our road trip to Sils Maria and St. Moritz, opting for the luxurious Genesis GV80 SUV. Our days were filled with alpine skiing, leisurely walks in the Fex Valley, and delightful dining experiences at our favorite places. We enjoyed visiting the permanent installation, “Skyspace Piz Uter” by James Turell, situated at the Hotel Castel in Zuoz and there was a Gerhard Richter exhibition spread across three exhibition venues in the Engadin.
Road trips, even in winter offer numerous advantages, particularly when dealing with the transportation of various sports equipment and attire for diverse occasions. After all, it was New Year’s Eve and in St. Moritz, you have to be well prepared.
Additionally, when travelling with a car, the spontaneity to extend your journey is always a delightful possibility to consider.
You could choose any car for this journey, but driving the Genesis GV80 in Matterhorn White (!) was an experience that underscored the essence of the entire journey. A really unique experience.
Here are just a few assets that we liked particularly about the car:
Snow Mode: Enhancing traction on snow-covered roads, Snow Mode adjusts throttle response, engine shift points, and transmission settings for a smoother start.
Automated Parking: The car can park itself. Engage park mode, release the brake, press the button, and the car autonomously maneuvers into the parking space.
Unpark Function: With a simple press of a button on the keychain, the car can be automatically driven forward or backward out of a parking space, a particularly helpful feature in crowded lots, especially when wearing ski shoes.
Comfort: Rear-seat passengers enjoy aircraft-style reclining seats for added comfort.
And here is a list of the places the Genesis GV80 has taken us:
