The most luxurious of cars aren’t just for your driveway – a road trip gives you the perfect opportunity to not only get that holiday you know you deserve, but to also get that engine running so you can throw yourself into enjoying everything that your vehicle has to offer. But from the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, to the Maserati Quattroporte, some luxury cars hold the lead when it comes to being road-trip friendly, and we’ve picked out five of the best options to get you started!
A road trip does not mean, under any circumstances, that you can’t travel in complete style – not when the Maserati Quattroporte exists. This model really is the epitome of luxury and will provide all the space you could need without being a large car. The plush leather seats in the front and back still give plenty of leg room and with elegant trim detailing in genuine open-pore Radica wood, there is certainly a graceful contrast throughout the car. The front seats have access to 12-way power adjustment and heating, and the driver’s seat even auto-configured due to the memory function. There’s even an 8.4” infotainment system that is completely touchscreen – oh, and there’s even a convenient box for your phone! What more could you want?
Alfa Romeo Stelvio
Alfa Romeo’s answer to the SUV came about in the autumn of 2017 and has proven to be quite the contender for our list. The exterior alone is a stylish approach to the tradition 4x4, giving you all the convenience of the larger vehicle for your road trip without giving up on style, but it’s the interior where the car truly exceeds. There is plenty of space in both the front and back, making this the perfect car for a group or family road trip, and with plenty of controls accessible from the driver’s seat; practically everything can be adjusted with ease. The Integrated Brake System, Autonomous Emergency Braking and pedestrian recognition all make this among the safest of our choices too, so it truly is perfect for transporting your family on those long drives.
Volvo V90 Cross Country
For those slightly rougher road trips, the Volvo V90 Cross Country is the exact step up from the original estate version of the V90 you may already know. There’s intelligent four-wheel drive as standard with your vehicle, and 65mm extra of ground clearance, this car can handle anything you throw at it – or rather, drive it over! There is plenty of adjustment to be made with the seats in this car which are easy to tweak as necessary, so those aches and pains are a thing of the pst, and with front sensors and a rear-view camera available as options, you can make the drive even easier. There’s a 9.0inch touchscreen infotainment system that allows you to control all the gadgets the car comes with through the vast array of menus and functions – you should probably have a play before you set off!
Land Rover Range Rover
Land Rover’s new Range Rover is certainly a road trip car not to be missed. Land Rover have always provided some of the best models for the longer, more bumpy of road and off-road trips, and this new model certainly isn’t any different. The car has a floating roofline, a continuous waistline and plenty of lower accents that all make up for a stunning exterior, and the interior doesn’t disappoint either. With four fully comfortable seats and adaptability for a fifth, even the rear seats now come with recline to give your passengers ultimate comfort on those long trips. The steering wheel comes with touch-sensitive switches, and the Touch Pro Duo 10” touchscreen infotainment system, the technology available in this vehicle will give you a smooth, well-connected ride, and all in the highest luxury.
Hopefully we’ve provided you with a good starting point in your search for a road-trip car that doesn’t pass on luxury. Whether you’re looking for a good car for the family, or you’re happy to travel solo, there’s a model out there for you, so happy hunting!
