There are few holidays that are as exciting as those that involve a good road trip. Sure it may take longer to your destination but a journey can be just as magical. There are many things to discover that you simply wouldn’t be able to experience any other way. Taking a road trip doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or feel like a chore. It can be an amazing experience. We wanted to share what we felt to be the best cars for a road trip so when you are out buying your next car you will know which are the best for those long weekend getaway trips.

01 2021 Volvo V90

Volvo is known for safety and reliability. Two things that certainly cannot hurt on a road trip. The Volvo V90 is a wonderful station wagon that works for the simple weekend getaway or longer journeys traversing the national highway networks. You have loads of packing space for luggage and other gear you will need on your road trip. You can choose from a few variants which offer supercharged and turbocharged versions. Meaning that you can have a little fun along your drive as well.

02 2021 Subaru Outback

Now the Subaru Outback has such a comfortable interior and ride height that is hard not to fall in love. The car is quite pleasing to look at as well. This is the ideal choice for someone who drives often and spends some of those road trips going off road. The clearance is great which means you will miss most obstacles and the suspension is unlike any other, making it a very comfortable ride on and off the road. Great for groups and individuals as the car is fuel efficient while providing excellent packing space. The size of the Subaru Outback is great for parking in cities as well. This car really is a fantastic all round road trip car.

03 2021 Kia Telluride

The Kia Telluride is a comfortable ride and offers an elegant look at very reasonable prices for a vehicle in its range. The car offers you a luxury feel with the interior of the cabin being so lavish. It is definitely a passenger focused car which means it will be great for long trips with your family or friends. This is a budget friendly car for people who enjoy road trips, have large families, or need that extra loading space.

04 2022 Honda Odyssey

This is the car we would suggest for families in particular. The cabin of the Honda Odyssey is flexible and offers seating for a soccer team or even a load of home supplies. It is nimble for its size which makes it great as a daily driver minivan. For long haul driving it is just as comfortable with a well equipped interior and decent driving experience. There are also quite a few driver-assistance features available that increases the overall safety factor.

05 Chevrolet Suburban

Probably the biggest out of all our top picks. The Chevrolet Suburban is a roomy ride and great for large groups of friends and/or families. The car can seat up to 8 people while having enough space for luggage and other adventure gear. You also have multiple power outlets and onboard 4G Wi-Fi to enjoy. A particularly nice advantage of the Chevy Suburban is that the second row doesn’t have to move for the third row to access their seats.


Are you in Need of Breakdown Protection?

Breakdown protection is essential to ensuring that you get reliable and quick service in the event of a mechanical breakdown. Chaiz offers drivers the opportunity to compare, research, review and choose the protection plan best suited to their needs and budget. A vehicle service contract is often referred to as an extended car warranty, however these are offered by the manufacturer. Vehicle service contracts are offered by third-party providers. The plans come with more flexible coverage  terms and wonderful perks.

For the most basic coverage you have the option of the powertrain plan which is the most affordable and the powertrain plus plan that includes more parts covered and is slightly more expensive. The most comprehensive plans, also known as bumper-to-bumper or exclusionary plans colloquially, cover the same parts as the powertrain and powertrain plus plans but then include other systems and components. They are the most expensive plans too.

Is Breakdown Protection with Chaiz Worth It?

A vehicle service contract is meant to cover your car for repairs and labor in the event of a mechanical breakdown. Saving you from having to fork out hundreds to thousands of dollars. Not only will you have the savings and peace of mind that you are covered but also the extra perks that come with many of these plans. The perks include roadside assistance, towing services, and fuel delivery services. Chaiz is a great place to get breakdown protection as the whole process is online and transparent.
