The best cars for your road trip
If you’re planning an Ottawa road trip any time soon – or any road trip for that matter – we’ve got just the list of the best cars for you! From the trusty Range Rover to the stylish Alfa Romeo, finding the right car for your road trip can be just as difficult as picking the roads you want to ride and the places you want to experience. Luckily, we’ve done some, if not all, of the hard work for you! Without further ado, here is our list of the best cars for your Ottawa road trip!
Range Rover SV Autobiography
The Range Rover SV Autobiography is the best of all road trip cars. If you’re planning a long drive and you want to travel in style, this is the perfect car for you – well, if you have around $200,000 to spend on an SUV. This luxury Range Rover model practically dips with sophistication from the grille to the exclusive SV Autobiography badge on the tailgate. With electronically deployable tables in the rear and a Meridian surround sound system for optimum musical enjoyment, your passengers can sit back in ultimate comfort. There’s even an optional cooler compartment, built-in USB charging sockets and reclining seats for the best practicality!
Alfa Romeo Stelvio
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio might not have all the mod cons of the Range Rover, but it certainly makes up for it in style and sophistication. While the infotainment system isn’t exactly of the highest graphics in the industry, it’s easy to understand for those who are new to such an advanced system, and still gives you everything you need to know at a high quality. You can get this car in a range of different trims and colours, so you can pick the design specifications perfect for you. As for road tripping – what’s not to love about a 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds SUV with pleasant driving and plenty of leg room?
Mercedes Benz s600 Maybach
The Mercedes Benz s600 Maybach is another luxurious option for long-distance road trips. This twin-turbo V12 powered German sedan has a system called ‘Magic Body Control’ – which Mercedes claim allows the car to scan the road up ahead, all so it can adjust the suspension for changing road surfaces – clever, huh? The rear passengers are just as much of a winner in this car, with four-way adjustable reclining seats, plenty of leg room and the best part? It’s a WiFi hotspot all of its own. No more parking in fast food carparks clinging to their free WiFi again!
Tesla Model X
The Tesla Model X is a bit of a hit and miss depending on where you actually want to go. This electric car, depending on the model that you choose, can do up to 220 miles on a single charge, and with the Superchargers dotted around the country, you can charge your car up in as little as 30 minutes. But this is where the dilemma comes into play. You have to be near a Supercharger. While more Superchargers are being set up all around Ottawa, you still need to carefully plan your trip to make sure you don’t leave yourself stranded! But with falcon doors and powerful engines no matter what size you choose, is there really any reason not to take the risk?
