June 21st – the first official day of the summer. You know what this means…road trip season. Taking a long road trip is one of the more enjoyable experiences on four wheels, when you have the right car and group of friends. We can’t pick your friends, but we can help you pick your car.
Here are some of the most comfortable and practical vehicles that you might want to take on your next road trip:
“With fuel economy ratings of 27 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, the Crosstrek is an apt choice for couples or small families looking to log some serious highway miles.”
“Honda’s smallest crossover boasts 6.7 inches of ride height and an ingenious “Magic Seat” interior layout, which allows passengers to configure the cabin in five different modes — normal, split, tall, utility, and lounge. That means the car can easily ferry anything, whether it be luggage, bikes, tall plants, or even surfboards.”
“What goes better with a great American road trip than a classic American car? Nothing, that’s what. The Ford Mustang GT is a legend through and through, and the sixth-generation model is the most refined version yet. Ford recently updated the model with more tech features, too, including an available digital instrument cluster that will let you keep an eye on key road trip metrics such as speed, distance to empty, and the tunes blasting through the speakers.”
“Not only is the XC90’s interior one of the best we’ve ever seen in an SUV, its smart technology and excellent efficiency make it a no-brainer if you prefer your road trips with a group.”
“The most fuel-efficient caron the road without a plug, the Eco model returns up to 58 mpg on the freeway and flaunts a total range of more than 600 miles.”
“It’s also fast, agile, and surprisingly refined, as the suspension can be tuned depending on what surface you’re rocketing over. People buy these because they’re beautiful, stirring, and create a new experience every time you press the start button.”
We all know how awkward it can be loading a bike into your vehicle. Wrangling the wheels, making sure you don’t chip the paintwork, damaging the trim, or having oily upholstery.
A great way to take your hobby to the next level, is to get your car involved. A car opens up the horizons for your next adventure in new, fun locations. If you are looking for a vehicle that fits all of your bikes and gear, consider these vehicles below the next time you are car shopping.
BEST MID-SIZE SUV
Jeep Grand Cherokee – Deliver My Ride Cyclist Rating: 5/5
“No vehicle really boasts ‘off-road adventurer’ like a Jeep. Though it’s larger than the Wrangler, the Grand Cherokee is a more traditional mid-size SUV suitable for anyone from single travelers to full families. With seven different trim levels available starting at $31,000, you can customize it to suit your adventuring needs.” – Bycycling.com
BEST CROSSOVER SUV
Subaru Outback – Deliver My Ride Cyclist Rating: 4.5/5
“With Subaru’s Outback, wagons haven’t completely gone out of style. Its spacious interior and practical cargo space meets modern style, infotainment, and safety features. Car and Driver writes, “Its capability as both a cargo hauler and an all-weather companion appeals to buyers with adventure on the mind.” Though all Subarus have all-wheel-drive appeal, the Outback provides enough space to fit your bike in the back, and the low, long roof makes it easy to secure it on a roof rack.”
BEST LARGE SUV
Ford Expedition – Deliver My Ride Cyclist Rating: 4.5/5
“The Ford Expedition won’t leave anybody behind—with the second row’s bench seat, it can fit up to eight people. US News ranked it the #1 large SUV of 2019. “It has a strong engine, spacious seats, a comfortable ride, and more cargo space than most competitors, especially in the long-wheelbase Expedition Max,” it concluded. However, the Max model has less off-road and towing capability and lower fuel economy than the Expedition XLT, and the top Platinum trim can cost more than many full-size luxury SUVs.”
BEST LUXURY SUV
Land Rover Discovery – Deliver My Ride Cyclist Rating: 4/5
“Thanks to its high-end cabin, smooth on- and off-road ride, infotainment and driver-assistance tech, Car and Driver concluded that the new Land Rover Discovery is “built for the trails” as well as “equipped to conquer suburbia.” Drivers raved about it being comfortable to drive and easy to tow. “It has so many accessories, and storage compartments are everywhere,” wrote one owner on Car Buyer.”
