The right car not only functions as a reliable work vehicle, it also takes you away for times of recreation. Each of these used cars has a unique appeal for different kinds of long-distance trips.
As one of the safest minivans on the market, the Honda Odyssey makes an ideal road trip vehicle for family vacations. Not only does it have plenty of room for passengers, but it holds plenty of luggage space as well. Since this roomy minivan is also fuel-efficient (it functions on less cylinders when cruising), you can travel far without feeling the pain at the gas pump. Also, parents will love the rear DVD screen. It’s the perfect antidote the kids asking, “Are we there yet?”
The Chevrolet Traverse makes the ideal family-friendly vehicle for day trips to a theme park or afternoon getaways to a favorite picnic spot. It also works well for taking the family out to Fourth of July celebrations. The interior holds up to seven, so you can bring the kids’ friends or cousins. With almost 120 cubic feet of storage space, it can handle large coolers filled with refreshments. Its powerful V6 engine with 288 horsepower will easily haul the load.
Sometimes road trips are about exciting off-road adventures. In this case, the four-wheel drive Land Rover LR4 delivers. Its terrain response system will help you navigate through any kind of geography (or topography). Navigate Arizona’s Grand Canyon, California’s Yosemite National Park, or any terrain in between in the comfort of a Land Rover LR4. It seats seven and has plenty of space for luggage.
Owning an economical Toyota Prius gives you the freedom to go on long-distance trips because it only uses 50mpg. To put it into perspective: a coast-to-coast round trip from New York to Los Angeles would take only 112 gallons of gas. At a price of $4 per gallon, the journey would cost less than $450. So go ahead, visit those distant family members and those states that once seemed too far away.
The Audi Allroad makes the ideal vehicle for mountain biking trips. Its all-wheel drive can handle difficult terrain. The 50 cubic-foot cargo area makes for good storage space. The turbocharged, four-cylinder engine of the Audi Allroad strikes the ideal balance between fuel economy and performance.
