Tourism is one of the industries hit the hardest by the pandemic, however travel never goes out of style with travelers learning to adapt to the new normal. For those who’ve been itching to get away, there are plenty of workation, staycations and road trip destinations to explore local attractions and embrace the outdoors like never before.
Socially distant by design, many travelers are driving to beach cities, mountain resorts and national parks to escape in socially distanced ways like never before. With stay-at-home restrictions starting to ease up on various parts of the country and many travel destinations offering historically low prices, expect this upward trend on domestic travel to continue.
As the desire to get away are giving the domestic travel industry a boost, choosing the perfect ride to accompany you on the road is vital. We took a road trip from Los Angeles to Zion National Park in Utah and Horseshoe Bend in Arizona to see if the all-new 2021 Buick Envision Essence really lives up to being the ultimate road trip companion.
A surefire way to travel in style, this compact SUV is the ideal choice for your next roadtrip because of its striking look and modern style. However, the striking compact design, features and capabilities is only scratching the surface in terms of what this sleek new ride has to offer. Since it is compact, it makes for an easy to drive and just the right size for a family or a small group of friends. It builds on the success of its predecessor and integrates modern features to suit the modern drivers’ needs.
You will be ready to conquer any terrain or roadblocks with this compact vehicle, starting with the rich array of safety and driver assistance features. At the same time, it boasts a next-generation infotainment system with a built-in Alex feature and Reese Witherspoon’s popular book club, ‘Reese’s Book Club,’ available in app form allowing drivers to select from a specially curated collection audiobooks and podcasts hosted by the club.
Aside from the sleek exterior, modern features, and reliable engine, the Buick Envision is all about the interiors. When you are on the road for several hours at a time, you want a car that is comfortable enough to last you through the journey. You’ll get that with this one. You’ll experience the comfort and ease of everyday driving even when you go on roadtrips.
The Buick Envision truly resonates to modern and discerning customers. The pandemic has forced to change priorities when it comes to travel, but one thing remains constant: Buick’s commitment to delivering quality vehicles that will give you more confidence to go out on the road.
