Best Cars for Long Journeys
With ‘staycations’ increasing in popularity, long car journeys around the UK are becoming the norm. Even travels to work are getting longer, with more and more Brits spending 55 minutes or more on their commute.
It’s important to have a quality vehicle that’s comfortable and easy to drive, so you don’t go stir crazy sitting in the car for hours. Here’s a list of the most suitable cars for those long journeys.
The Suzuki Vitara is the perfect option for those commuting from the countryside to the city, as its higher clearance makes bumpy roads a doddle. The low fuel consumption is perfect for those long motorway stretches, and the top specs have climate control and keyless entry to make your busy days easier.
If you want a peaceful journey after a long day at work, then the Volkswagen Passat is pretty perfect. The cabin is almost silent whilst driving, giving you some rest before or after a hard day. With a super comfortable interior, you won’t get numb legs taking a drive in the Volkswagen Passat. Both the saloon and estate models are good for long journeys, but the estate has a larger boot for more luggage on your holidays.
Citroen C4 Cactus
If you are looking for a comfortable car that won’t break the bank, then the Citroen C4 Cactus is the best option. Fit the whole family inside along with all the luggage and have a comfortable journey the whole way. The suspension is created for comfort instead of sporty handling, so bumpy roads will still be comfortable in the cabin and potholes won’t throw you to the roof!
This city car is compact, but still has a comfortable cabin. The Hyundai i10 is powerful and quiet enough to hold its own on motorways, yet is small and offers excellent handling, making it great for long commutes as well as busy streets and tight parking spaces.
