Why is it better to choose a crossover or a jeep for traveling in Ukraine?

Traveling within the country is one of the favorite pastimes for many Ukrainians. There are many tourist routes, interesting sights, memorable places in the country. But there are downsides - the lack of infrastructure and public transport, so you have to think over the road yourself.

Also, the quality of the road surface leaves much to be desired not only on intercity routes, but also in many cities of Ukraine. That is why it is recommended to use an SUV or crossover for travel. It is not necessary to buy a jeep for such purposes - you can rent the most attractive car at any time.

The quality of the roads and the cross-country ability of the car

There are more than 170 thousand km of roads throughout the country, of which only 50 thousand km are of national importance. Therefore, the state motor transport service Ukravtodor is engaged in the repair and monitoring of the state of the latter. The remaining more than one hundred thousand kilometers were transferred to city and regional services.

According to some surveys, the problem of the quality of the road surface is of interest to every third driver and almost half of those who regularly travel outside the city on business. More than 85% of the total road surface does not meet European quality standards. Repair work is carried out locally, with the replacement of particularly problematic areas. The remaining track is being repaired according to the leftover principle - in fact, patching is being carried out.

Not surprisingly, drivers are concerned about the condition of the suspension and the rest of the vehicle. Low cross-country ability directly contributes to an increase in the likelihood of accidents. The problem is especially acute in the off-season and in winter, when mud and snow negatively affect the quality of the coating. Potholes during this period are less noticeable; in the dark, movement becomes more dangerous.

That is why it is recommended to use a type of car such as an SUV for long trips. Such models have some features and advantages that you should pay attention to before you rent a car for travel.

Crossover or jeep

What characteristics to pay attention to when choosing?

First of all, you should think about which route you have to overcome. Depending on this, the class of the car that can be rented will also change. Most often for intercity travel it is recommended to use:

  • SUV;
  • crossover.

Despite some common features, both types of cars have different characteristics. So, the crossover is equipped with a high ground clearance, but it cannot boast of excellent cross-country ability. It makes sense to rent such a car, only if you do not plan to travel far outside the city. But if you want to overcome some parts of the forest, drive through wetlands, then the SUV will be an excellent choice.

These are not the only parameters to keep in mind. Before concluding a rental agreement at NarsCars, you should pay attention to:

  • spaciousness - depending on the brand, the cabin can accommodate from five to eight people;
  • body type - frame cars or cars with a load-bearing type can be used;
  • number of functions - a minimum set is recommended, this includes climate control, airbags, heated seats, sound insulation;
  • trunk volume - directly affects the amount of supplies and clothes that you can take with you on a trip;
  • a gearbox - for active off-road and forest areas it is worth renting from a manual gearbox, while an automatic machine is enough for difficult road sections;
  • drive - for long trips outside the city, it is better to use four-wheel drive cars;
  • fuel consumption - SUVs are "gluttonous", and many models consume more than 10 liters per 100 km, even on flat areas.

Do not forget about personal preferences - you should be comfortable while driving. If you are in doubt about the choice and do not know how to choose the right option, we recommend that you contact NarsCars specialists for advice.
