Staycations – What car should you invest in

If you are thinking of taking a Staycation or a long road trip, you want to ensure you have the right car to accompany you on your journey.

Whether you are travelling with the family or with friends, you want a car that is both reliable and cost efficient.

From beaches to remote country environments, staycations can take their toll on your car if you don’t have the right vehicle for the environment. If you are planning on going off road or doing lots of short journeys, you want to make sure you have the right car to suit your plans.

Best SUV’s for Families

If you are travelling with a family, you may want to invest in an SUV, that offers much more space than a standard estate or hatchback. Because an SUV provides more space it offers additional comfort on long journeys, leaving plenty of room for luggage and other equipment. SUV’s are often more practical if travelling with large amounts of luggage as well as being safer as there is plenty of storage options.

What is an SUV

An SUV is a four-wheel drive vehicle that is capable of driving across rough terrain and are much more adaptable to reaching difficult, or hard to reach places. SUV stands for 'sports utility vehicle', so you know it will cope well on rough terrain.

The design of SUV’s has come a long way in recent years and aren’t as bulky or gas guzzling as they used to be.

SUV’s are also notoriously spacious, from the interior to the boot space, there is plenty of room for transporting heavy or awkward equipment, from surfboards to suitcases and bicycles.

Their raised driving position offers increased visibility and improved driving ability, allowing you to drive across uneven surfaces without damaging the bottom of the vehicle. SUV’s are also designed to take more movement and the suspension is built to absorb a lot of the shocks when driving on rough terrain.

What is the best small SUV

If you are used to owning hatchbacks or estate cars, it may seem like a big jump to move straight to an SUV. It might be worth exploring compact SUV’s that offer the additional space required for long journeys or staycations, without the need for a bulky vehicle for your everyday travel.

The Hyundai Tucson is a compact SUV designed to be both fun to drive and offer everything your family needs, from comfort additions to safety features. Not only is the Hyundai Tucson packed with technology, it also offers low CO2 emissions and an efficient drive so you can be sure that your long journeys are environmentally friendly. For additional comfort, the Premium SE models offer a luxury experience, from heating steering wheel to panoramic sunroof.

The Hyundai Kona sits between a hatchback and a compact SUV, offering exceptional integration to any city or urban landscape whilst also performs well in the countryside as well as off road.

Packed with technology and safety features, the Kona offers a truly connected drive, ideal for keeping passengers occupied and the driver on track during long journeys.

Best Towing Cars

If you are planning a staycation, you may have recently invested in a caravan that the family can sleep in to keep your accommodation costs down. If you own a caravan, it’s important your car is legally capable of towing it. The Hyundai Tucson and the Hyundai Santa Fe are both capable of towing a caravan safetly, with the Santa Fe being able to tow up to 2,500kg. The Santa Fe is the biggest car in the Hyundai range and has the capacity to seat up to 7, so ideal for those family staycations.

One thing to remember is that Hyundai offer a 5 year unlimited mile warranty as standard with all new cars, offering complete peace of mind.
