If you’re planning a driving holiday, then the question of what car will make the trip the most enjoyable has probably crossed your mind. But aren’t all vehicles just the same? Or are some really better for going long distances than others?
It turns out that when it comes to travelling across the channel and over to the continent, some cars are better than others. Check out this list of the best vehicles that make travelling blissful.
The Mercedes V-Class
What is the Mercedes V-Class you may ask? While this vehicle is probably more at home in the possession of a taxi driver or a contractor, it also makes a great vehicle for travelling long distances.
The V-Class is a rare vehicle. It offers both a luxurious interior as well as plenty of space for anything that you might want to take with you: children, skis, bicycles, wheelchairs – you name it.
If you decide that you need to use all six seats, then you can. If not, you can swap them out according to your space requirements.
If you’re planning a trip to the French Riviera, then look no further than the Maserati GranCabrio, a car that is at home in exotic and luxurious surroundings.
The GranCabrio oozes style and finesse. The large grille at the front prominently displaying the Maserati logo adds a sense of class. What’s more, the GranCabrio is open top, allowing you to soak up the sun as you cruise down the open road – perfect for a trip to the Med.
When it comes to road trips, you don’t have to travel a long way to get your kicks. Sometimes a quick lap around local B roads will do the trick. That’s where the Honda Civic comes in, a car readily available at dealers such as Hilton Car Supermarket. The vehicle is highly agile and very affordable, making it a favourite among people who want to get out on the road for the driving experience itself.
The car is also safe thanks to its ample grip, especially under normal driving conditions, and will generate more than 306bhp if you push it. Be warned, though; this car is fast when you floor the accelerator pedal.
If you want that open-top experience at a much lower price than the Maserati, then the Cascada is well worth your consideration. The Cascada is a convertible with distinct Vauxhall looks. It comes in at a fraction of the price of most cars in its class, and yet has the reliability to cross a continent capably. Getting replacement parts and service for this car is both easy and affordable, making this a favourite among families.
The Vauxhall comes in a range of engine types, with the most popular being the 195bhp twin turbo diesel variety, thanks to its combination of price and performance. The Cascada should offer excellent mileage, bringing down the average cost of your trip and leaving more money left over for all those fancy restaurant meals you’ve got lined up.
