Whether it is a road-trip with friends, a family staycation or regular long-distance travel for work, the Brits are spending longer on the road than ever before. As long journeys become part of the norm, it is important that you have a vehicle suited for the trips you’re making.
Cars that can cope with the extra luggage and have the added comfort for both the driver and passengers are essential for making sure you all arrive at your destination relaxed and ready.
These are four great cars that will get you through those long journeys.
Citroen C4 Cactus
The Citroen C4 Cactus is the economic option for the feel of luxury journeys that are also affordable on your motor trade insurance. Its smooth suspension will leave you cushioned against the bumpy roads, and it is spacious enough for the long staycation. Plus, the wider seats will give you more space to store the entertainment for your family during the trip.
This is the car that was built for comfort. With an almost silent drive, you can take a moment of mindfulness on the commute to work. It makes a great family option, and both the saloon and estate models are built for longer journeys. While there is more boot space in the estate for any wilder outdoor activities that you’re heading out to, it still remains an affordable way to travel and could be covered by your motor trade insurance.
The Suzuki Vitara is a great car for getting families around the country. With a keyless entry system, you can load the car while your arms are full. It is spacious for the kids, so you can fill the back seat with games and tablets to keep them entertained. The low fuel consumption means your wallet won’t take a big hit, leaving spare change for treats, meals and even motor trade insurance.
This is a great city car, being compact enough to slip into the smallest of spaces. Don’t let its size deceive you: this car can pack some power on the motorway and is economical with fuel. The i10 is perfect for the weekend getaway, with enough room for a couple of overnight bags as you escape to your city break.
