It was a poor choice - a tiny car, defined by a crowded cabin and limited cargo space. Your legs press against the dash; your arms tuck tightly within the confines of a seat; and your back creaks uncomfortably with every too-sharp turn. This was, you now know, a mistake… and it’s one that will ruin your road trip.
There are few rites of passage more iconic than the road trip. Every year travelers flock to the highways, seeking out unknown destinations - but those same travelers often regret their adventures, finding themselves trapped within ill-suited vehicles.
Allow us to spare you that fate. We’re pleased to share a list of the top ten best used platforms for road trips (as tallied by The Street). Let these vehicles offer comfort and performance during every escape:
2014 Ford Mustang
2014 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen Diesel
2015 Honda Fit
2014 Toyota Prius V
2014 Hyundai Veloster
2014 Honda Odyssey
2014 Mazda MX5 Miata
2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
2015 Mini Cooper convertible 2014 Ford Flex
It comes as no surprise that the 2014 Mustang (with its responsive 5.0L V8 engine and seamless six-speed transmission) and the 2014 Ford Flex (with its tri-row seating and 4,500-pound towing capacity) earned places of honor from The Street. These vehicles are ideal options for every destination. Choose a convertible for those long cruises down the coast, taking advantage of 420 HP and 390 lb.-ft of torque - or experience all-terrain comfort with an SUV, utilizing a smooth all-wheel-drivetrain. The options are endless.
