How to choose a car for a trip?

How to choose a car for a trip?

To travel freely around the country, you do not have to be the owner of an SUV, especially if you do not need to drive a car for work and you prefer not to be behind the wheel. It is much more profitable to rent a suitable car for both short and long trips. You don't have to take care of it all year, organize a garage for storage and spend money on a purchase - just invest in the budget for the rent. This is beneficial if you prefer not to use your own transport on ordinary days.

Also, the rental will interest those whose car is not suitable for the type of travel that they decided to choose. For example, you have a small passenger car for the city, which is quite suitable in all respects. But for a long trip with luggage, it will obviously not be enough.

What characteristics should you pay attention to?

Perhaps the first thing to start when choosing a car for tourism is its spaciousness. You should decide how many people you plan to take on the trip and how much luggage you need. An SUV will be enough for a trip for two, while a minivan is suitable for a large family or company. Also decide where you will sleep. In a comfortable minivan, two people can sleep peacefully, which will help to significantly save on hotels and expand the possibilities of country travel.

Also, for long journeys, the comfort of the driver and passengers is important. It is often necessary to sit for several hours in one position behind the wheel, therefore ergonomics and the ability to conveniently change seat positions are extremely important parameters.

Don't forget about safety. Outside the city, the probability of getting into an accident, oddly enough, increases. And if an accident happened while traveling around the city, then help will arrive in a matter of minutes. The situation will be completely different if you leave urbanized places. Therefore, the car must be equipped with an ABS system, adjustable airbags, panoramic cameras.

The more things you need to take and the more people are traveling, the larger the luggage compartment should be. Littering up the interior with unnecessary items is not the best solution. If you are going to go to live in tents, then you need to take into account the place for dishes, a tent, a bicycle and other things that would not be needed if you were staying at a hotel.

It is also important to pay attention to the type of gearbox. Of course, a manual gearbox is ideal for off-road driving. Such a car will better cope with mountain roads and other irregularities, it is easier to maintain, it can always be taken in tow or started "from a pusher". If automation is more comfortable for you, then be prepared for the fact that in the event of a breakdown you will have to call a tow truck. Otherwise, she will also cope with the journey.

As for the type of drive, the ideal option was, is and will be all-wheel drive 4 × 4. But it consumes more fuel, which must also be taken into account. Decide if you have the means to do this.

The power of a car is determined by the size of the engine. The larger the volume, the higher the speed can be developed by the car. But this has a direct proportional effect on fuel consumption. Cars with an engine capacity of 2-2.5 liters are considered optimal. Therefore, you should think about the economy of fuel consumption, so that this expense item does not become a ruinous surprise.

What car classes are worth considering?

The following classes of cars are considered the most suitable for travel:

  • off-road vehicles;
  • minivans;
  • crossovers;
  • station wagons;
  • pickups.

All of them are spacious and comfortable for the driver and passengers. If any car is suitable for urban conditions, then crossovers are ideally suited for real off-road conditions.

The answer to this question is very simple: it is not only possible, but also necessary. In Europe, it is a common tourist practice to come to a new city or country, rent a car and explore the area. This service provides greater mobility and freedom of movement.
