"I don't think I've ever been this excited to drive in LA - even in traffic."

Wrapping up the year with last minute shopping and a drive through Hastings Ranch to see the houses that are beautifully lit this time of year.
Christmas music has been playing non-stop since Thanksgiving ended and oddly enough, it has yet to hit me that the end is near. I've been traveling back-to-back in the last couple of months which means I've had little to no time to properly get into the holiday preparation and cheer. However, with just a few days left before Christmas and the New Year, I didn't have my typical panic attack in realizing that I didn't have all my gifts yet. Instead, I hopped into my Genesis G80 Sport, went to Starbucks to get my soy latte, and handled the chaos in style.
It's been chilly in LA lately, which had me throughly enjoying the heating functions of the Genesis G80 Sport. Aside from the warmth of your seat, adjusted to your liking, the steering wheel can also be heated so that your hands stay warm too. It was so cozy that I forgot how cold it was outside.
To navigate me through the crowded streets of LA, the G80 Sport made sure to let me know when a car or person is too close. Keeping me alert, safe, and secure at all times, it certainly helped ease my mind along with the tunes playing from the SirusXM radio through the Lexicon 7.1 discrete audio system with quantum logic surround.
As much as I loved all the above mentioned, what really impressed me the most was the overall sleek interior. Yes, the interior. Not the twin-turbo V6 or sport CDC suspension. It is the spacious interior that allowed me to stretch out and take naps in between my shopping trips. I even took a trip to Ikea and bought a few things that fit perfectly into the backseat and trunk. This is definitely the best car to take on a shopping day.
I ended the long yet productive day in Hastings Ranch for an annual drive thru the neighborhood to see all the festive lights and decorations. Seeing those who deck out their house this time of year is something I've done since I was 8 years old and is a tradition I plan on doing when I have kids on my own.
Thanks to the G80 Sport, Christmas shopping this year has been one of the easiest and stress free experiences I've ever had. If you have yet to ask for anything this Christmas, I'd go ahead and put this one on your wish list.
