The Best Used Cars to Buy If You Love Road Trips

Used Car for Road Trip Lovers

If you love to travel, comfort is very important in a vehicle. You want a nice, quiet ride, comfortable seating, and enough room. We have evaluated several used vehicles, and narrowed our favorite road trip vehicles down to the Ford Taurus, Chevrolet Cruze, Buick Verano, Toyota Camry, and Buick Regal.

  • Ford Taurus: The Taurus seats five comfortably, is a nice quiet ride with superior soundproofing, and has a suspension that ensures a quality ride even on less-than-stellar roads. Some models come with massaging front seats, which we find to be a real treat on long drives.

  • Chevrolet Cruze: You might be surprised to see a compact car on our list, but the Cruze has a lot of features that make for a truly pleasant road trip. We like the triple-layered door seals and the acoustic-laminated windshield, and the wheel-well liners make for a wonderfully quiet ride.

  • Buick Verano: Buicks are known for being comfortable and quiet, and the Verano is further proof that a compact vehicle can be great on road trips. It’s also one of the least expensive models on our list, but sacrifices nothing in terms of quality, comfort and drivability.

  • Toyota Camry: The Camry has always been a top-seller, and that means that you should have no trouble finding a used one. Redesigned in 2012 for greater comfort, the Camry is even quieter, and has an interior that will please the most discriminating driver.

  • Buick Regal: The Regal is not just a comfortable road trip car, it’s also pretty sporty-looking, which makes it fun to drive. The interior is opulent, and you’ll find that there’s no shortage of gadgetry to make your trip even more enjoyable. Drivers and passengers alike will appreciate the impressive amount of legroom that is so important on a long trip.

If your idea of the perfect weekend or vacation is getting in the car and heading out on a long trip, you’ll find any of the cars on this list will deliver the driving pleasure you want. Each one is quiet, comfortable, and readily available on the used car market.
