Best Road Trip Cars for Summer 2019
With the winter easing into spring, it’s time to look forward to summer and start planning your next road trip. Whilst it’s true that a road trip can be done in any car, some models can make the journey much more enjoyable that others. That’s why we’ve put together a list of this year’s top contenders for making an awesome road trip car.
2019 Honda HR-V
With the HR-V, Honda have demonstrated that providing a good value automobile does not mean having to suffer squeezed proportions and a penny-pinching interior.
What’s more the HR-V crossover is extra-practical. It comes with an inventive “Magic Seat” interior layout. Which means you can have the seats set out in 5 different ways: normal, split, tall, utility, and lounge.
This gives you the opportunity to pack everything from bikes to even surfboards for your road trip, and with 34 mpg on the highway, it won’t cost you a fortune to get to your destination either!
2019 Volvo XC90
Volvo have always been known for their impressive industry-leading safety record, so if the worst happens on your road trip you could do a lot worse for a car to have an accident in.
But where this car excels is in luxury, new for 2019 they have included a Bowers and Wilkins sound system so you can turn your road trip playlist up and sing away those hours on the road!
When you throw in the fact that there’s plenty of room to carry multiple passengers, and it has smart adaptive cruise control, this car quickly becomes a contender for best road trip car of the year.
2019 Kia Sorento
If you want the same luxury from an SUV without paying for the associated price tag, then look no further than the Kia Sorento. The 2019 model comes with a mind-blowing 100,000-mile warranty and a class-leading 28 mpg highway fuel economy.
Despite having a lower base price than many of its competitors it still packs a spacious interior with enough room for all of your things and your friends too.
It also comes with an infotainment system packed with features, although you will likely have to upgrade from the base L model to the EX trim level to get the most amount of features for your money.
2019 Dodge Challenger
For some, road trips are about getting there safely, for others it’s all about singing along to the radio and having a good time. But then there are those who want unleash hell, fire and fury on the road, listening to the soundtrack of a naturally aspirated V8 as they scream along the road to their destination.
The Challenger provides such a soundtrack, and is a throwback to the old adventures of Smokey and the Bandit. You will roar along to your destination followed by a cloud of wheel spin and burnt rubber.
Of course, we must remind you to stay within the speed limits and avoid breaking the law, which is no easy task when driving a beast of this nature.
2019 Chevrolet Tahoe
Perhaps the aim of your road trip to is take as many people as you can with you. The Chevrolet Tahoe might provide you with the answer by seating up to nine people at a time (seven and eight-seater options are available).
What’s more it can tow up to 8,600 pounds, meaning you can bring your accommodation with you in the form of a trailer or caravan which will provide no problems for the V8 under the hood.
Finally, there are multiple options for rear-seat entertainment systems which will keep your passengers (especially children) occupied as you rack up the miles.
Hopefully you’ll be able to choose a model from one of our 5 top picks for your road trip this summer, although we have many more options should you wish to opt for something else.
