The Best Cars For Road Trips in Canada

640 × 427

With summer on its way, we naturally look forward to vacation and taking time away from work. Many of us like to fly to exotic destinations and explore new cultures but many also like to stay at home. In a country as vast as Canada, you could drive all day long and never see the same thing twice. Road trips are also a fantastic way to see the country and spend quality time as a family.


With that in mind, here are what we think are the best cars for a summer road trip.

Couple’s summer road trip: Nissan 370Z

The Nissan 370Z is a driver’s car. A two seat roadster with a convertible roof for sunny days or a coupe if you prefer all round protection. Sure, luggage space is modest but when you’re going to be spending all day enjoying the excellent handling dynamics and that V6 engine, who needs a change of clothes?


On a more serious note, the Nissan 370Z is the perfect road trip car. It is fun to drive, comfortable, gets decent gas mileage and brings a smile to your face as soon as you get inside.

Family of four’s summer road trip: Ford Mustang

Most families drive ordinary cars throughout the rest of the year so why not drive something special on your road trip? You can’t get more special than the Ford Mustang. Soft top or coupe, both have four seats and more cargo space for luggage than you might think. Both are grin inducing, great fun and look and sound fantastic.


Even though the new design has been around a while now, it still turns heads. It’s a great experience to see one on the open road and even more so if you’re driving it!

Larger family summer road trip: Chrysler Pacifica

While it might all be about crossovers right now, the Chrysler Pacifica is an ideal road trip vehicle for the larger family or for those who like to pack for every eventuality. It is a state-of-the-art minivan with comfortable seating, great visibility all round, capable Pentastar engines and lots of family-friendly technology.


With second row captain’s chairs, the optional third row or more cargo space, 4G WiFi, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the Chrysler Pacifica was built for road trips!

Summer road trip with off road potential

If you think you might head into the wilderness or go exploring, there is only one car for that. The Jeep Grand Cherokee. It can go anywhere, do anything and still have you home in time for dinner. With superb on road manners and genuine off road ability, this is definitely the vehicle for a summer road trip that might venture onto the rough stuff.


Excellent road handling, comfortable seating, lots of technology and safety features and all-round visibility make this a sure fire winner in terms of road trip potential.
