7 Best Road Trip Cars, From the Practical to the Drool-Worthy

Posted by kunal on April 4th, 2019

This list is not about cars that you could use on a two-hour trip to the beach. This is about the type of vehicles that you can use if you want to go at a considerable distance or possibly even cross-country. Ranging from the practical to the drool-worthy, here is a rundown of the best cars for road trips.

1.Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

To some, the Volkswagen Golf GTI is the best daily driver but when it comes to road trips the SportWagen makes the most sense. It has an outstanding balance of internal cargo space and fuel efficiency. This is also a budget-friendly all-around vehicle that will surely help you enjoy your road trips without burning your pocket.

2.Jeep Grand Cherokee

When it comes to off-road four-wheel drive, the Wrangler is a great choice. However, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is still the classic vehicle that matches long highway driving. Although this model is not that equipped when it comes to trail compared to most wranglers, it does not that it does not have an impressive performance on its own. It has 295 horsepower that you cannot simply ignore.

3.Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited 5-Door

If you are not really into German engineering but you like what you see in the Volkswagen Golf SportWagen, you can have the Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited Five-Door as an outstanding replacement. Aside from better gas mileage, it comes with a roof rack for extra cargo, a standard four-wheel drive, and good looks for a standard wagon. It is a practical car with a plethora of capabilities and options. Its hatchback style allows you to easily grab things from the cargo. You can also try the new 2019 Subaru Outback if you are looking for an alternative to SUV.

4.Jaguar F-Pace

This sports utility vehicle, a first from the British car maker Jaguar, shares many things with the Ford Mustang Ecoboost Premium Hatchback. For example, this vehicle offers a V6 engine option that can produce 380 horsepower with a fuel economy rate of up to 33 miles per gallon. When you think about it, this vehicle can give fuel economy, performance, and drive your cost down. Aside from these, while this vehicle looks like an SUV it functions more like a sports car loaded with built-in luxuries and useful technologies.

5.Land Rover Range Rover Velar

This 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is a favorite road trip vehicle because it seems to be the best-rounded SUV. It has excellent off-road capability, beautiful interior, and a plethora of media connectivity options. It is also very comfortable and easy to drive, so drivers will feel fewer muscles pains even when on cross-country driving. the 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is available at a price tag below ,000.

6.Westfalia Sven Hedin CUV

This is the perfect pick if you want some element of nostalgia of the classic VW Camper Van and usability for a road trip vehicle. What makes the Westfalia Sven Hedin CUV more interesting is that it offers reliability and lesser maintenance compared to the fan-favorite Classic WV. The automaker has seriously made a more practical, comfortable, and full-featured camper van to outfit the VW Crafter vans.

Westfalia’s posh Sven Hedin is a caravanning utility vehicle or CUV that packs the practicality of a full-sized RV into a something that is not larger than a customary minivan. It also features several counter spaces and tablespaces, half bathroom with a toilet, a sink, a comfy bed, a mini kitchen with a cooktop, a fridge, and a lot of space for storage and cargo. But while its price tag is around ,000, it can save you money for lodging.

7.    1965 Ford Mustang Convertible

This is the only convertible on the list, but when it comes to long road trips, you can afford not to drive the 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible. This US-built vehicle inspires nostalgia while you drive it across the country. It is the first generation Mustang car that is a legend when it comes to sports car design. If you don’t like the classic version, you can choose the latest 2019 Ford Mustang Convertible model. This one is loaded with cutting-edge tech features like digital instruments cluster.
