Ideal Vehicles For Long Distance Travels

Nothing can be more enjoyable than traveling with your loved ones. Exploring various places and witnessing something new and marvelous has never been more rewarding if you experience it with your family and friends. Although it sounds great, unfortunately, not everyone can bear long hours of travel. I remember traveling from Manila to Ilocos last year and we spent almost 14 hours on the road. It was truly exhausting and since we were traveling in large group, the car was overly crowded and we didn’t get the chance to enjoy the long trip until we get there.

Luckily, we didn’t get any trouble with our car despite on being on a road for almost half a day. Take note that not all cars are built for long distance travel and that is something you must consider if ever you are buying a new one. A travel enthusiast guy should have a car that is specially built to conquer even the most challenging terrain. Listed below are some of the cars ideally made for long family road trip!

Toyota Sienna

Whether it is a long road trip or a challenging offroad journey, a minivan like Toyota Sienna will surely give you the kind of travel experience you have always desired. Powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, this minivan is surely equipped with enough power to withstand any challenging terrain condition. On top of that, this vehicle offers an overwhelming capacity for additional passengers or cargoes. A perfect travel buddy indeed! (plus, it is an All-Wheel Drive!)

Honda Odyssey

A closer competitor of Toyota Sienna is the equally impressive Honda Odyssey. This vehicle also features a large cargo room and brags about its innovative features. It offers a so-called Cabin Control system (a sound system activated by a special mobile app), a mobile hotspot and a remote engine start. The security feature of Honda Odyssey is also one of the minivan’s strongest assets!

Chevrolet Impala

If you are looking for something with class yet strong enough to support your passion in travel, a luxury sedan like the Impala is a perfect fit for you. This vehicle will not be dubbed as the 2017 Best Large car for no reason. Under the hood, this fell-size sedan is powered by 3.6L V6 engine which can generate an astounding 305 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it is equipped with many other innovative features for both safety and entertainment that every traveler will enjoy!

Toyota 4Runner

If you are one hardcore traveler who always seek for adventure, then an offroad vehicle like a Toyota 4Runner may suit you best! We spotted a lot of this vehicle when we went to Paoay Sand Dunes in Ilocos including a bunch of Toyota Land Cruiser. These cars are indeed made for extreme terrain conditions. It is not really surprising at all as the power comes from its impressive 4.0L V6 engine backed by 5 Speed Automatic transmissions. Maintenance will not be an issue as well. Upgrading or replacing the parts for better performance is always possible. After all, parts can now be purchased online through various auto part dealers and companies like . They offer wide range of spare parts for various vehicles and if you are lucky enough, you might be able to grab their promos and discounted rates.

Toyota Camry Hybrid

Last but certainly not the least, is the Toyota Camry Hybrid. This vehicle can absolutely deliver an impressive performance and is capable for long distance travel but what really makes it more special is the fact that a hybrid car like the Camry is notable for their impressive fuel efficiency. A long travel often equates to costly fuel consumption so having such car will help you big time. It also offers spacious capacity which makes your travel more rewarding.
To make the story short, choosing the right car for your travel needs is very important. Ask for recommendation, read reliable car reviews or consult an expert to help you decide on which car suits your needs. Happy traveling!

    It seems that Toyota as a company thinks a lot about family trips. This is quite a surprise for me actually. I have a Ford but it is time for a change and Toyota is definitively a pick. I am in a dilemma between Sienna and 4Runner at the moment. Both of them are cool and perfect for my needs. The price might solve the issue perhaps. Do you happen to know the price range?
