If you’re planning a road trip, you’ll need a car that has space, endurance and those all-important home comforts to get you where you need to go.
For a more ‘connected’ road trip
The BMW 3 Series connects with your phone, allowing you to plan your route before you’re even in the car. It’s perfect for long road trips as you can plan your entire journey in one go, rather than doing it destination by destination in the Satnav.
Not only does the boot have a capacity of up to 500 litres, there’s also plenty of leg room in both the front and back of the car for those extra long stretches of your trip.
The perfect car for fussy family members
Long road trips are often a cause for arguments, particularly if you’ve got children. That’s where the Hyundai Tucson comes in handy. Big on comfort, the Tucson has more than enough leg room in both the front and back of the car. As the driver, you can also move the front passenger seat back and forth using a button, how’s that for convenience?
The Hyundai Tucson also has three zone climate control. You can keep all your passengers happy by having different temperatures and airflow in the front and back of the car – no more arguing over being too hot or too cold.
Take your trip off-road
The RAV4’s four-wheel drive offers a smooth ride no matter what the surface. There’s plenty of boot space available, and with foldable backseats and an optional roof box you can double the total amount of space if you need to.
The hybrid engine has an electric-only range of 46 miles which will allow you save fuel if you get stuck in slow moving traffic or help you make the final stretch to the next petrol station.
A practical option that doesn’t skip on comfort and style
For those long and monotonous stretches of road, you can engage Travel Assist to keep your car in its lane and maintain your speed. The in-car tech can also aid with stop-start traffic thanks to the dual clutch gearbox.
You can also expect your road trip to be one big singalong. The sophisticated sound system uses ten speakers, surround sound and a subwoofer so you and your passengers can enjoy high quality sounds for the entire time you’re on the road.
Destress on your drive
The Nissan Qashqai has been specifically built to withstand the rough road surfaces of the UK. It smooths out your journey, so you’ll barely even notice a bump in the road.
You’ll never want to get out the car thanks to the massaging driver and passenger seats. That means no more stiff backs and legs so you can concentrate on enjoying the journey instead.
A seven-seater filled with road trip-friendly tech
The heads-up display gives you easy to follow directions, meaning you can see where you need to go without taking your eyes off the road. Meanwhile, the driver assistance technology handles your speed and lane position for those long stretches of road.
Despite the seven seats, there’s plenty of space for everyone, along with a spacious boot capacity of over 300 litres. You can also put the two rear seats down for extra space if you need it.
Add some style to your road trip plans
The 360hp 2.0litre engine will take you from 0-62mph in under six seconds, perfect for cruising down the motorway or taking on empty backroads.
The boot boasts a huge 1212 litres of space, and the lightweight, ergonomic seats provide extra back support – a perfect set up for an extended road trip.
